HAY TESTING

HAY TARPS

Our facility, while small, strives to be the most accurate and service oriented NIR haytesting facility around. While other labs may have a day or more sample request turn around time, Valley Hay Labs has a mere day turn around time . For a busy hay producer, hay buyer or hay feeder, this is a service that you can rely on season after season. Hay tests results are called, faxed, mailed, or e-mailed back to customers. We can test for Relative Feed Value (RFV) and Relative Forage Quality (RFQ). In the event you lose a hay test result, we keep a copy on file of each test performed at our office to ensure you have the results you need.

Not sure how to use a hay probe?

Use a hay sampler probe to ensure a uniform sample. Hay probes are available for sale at our office and can be mailed anywhere. The design is simple yet highly effective for sampling. The cost is $69.99 plus tax and shipping for probe.

Hay Tarps

Special sizes and special orders available.

We always have the 3 basic sizes, listed above, on hand. We work long hours during the busy spring and summer months, so go ahead and give us a call if you need a tarp after business hours.

Installation

Our tarps are sold with everything you need to install them; straps and buckles.

Tarps feature a gutter to shed water out and away from the hay pile.

These tarps are NOT made to be used as hay covers on semis. 

How to Install Our Hay Tarps

1.  Tarps are put on top of a pile and spread out on top.

  2.  Sides are unfolded and allowed to drop beside the pile.

  3.  Straps fall along the side, (attached to an interior support 2"x4")

  4.  From the ground, the installer puts the buckle into twine and cinches down on a seat-belt type strap.

 5. Return to pile after several days to ensure that as the pile settles the tarp is still cinched down properly.
