Best Answer

It depends on what kind of hay it is, whether it is alfalfa, clover, or some kind of grass. In most of the US, most hay fields are usually harvested three to five times per year for a period of three to 20 years, depending on the farmer's choice. Five to eight years is more typical, though, so a good average for most hay would be around 30 times.

Is hay a fungible good?

No. Hay is made of not just one type of grass or legume or grass-legume combination, but rather many possibilities of grass and legume cultivars and varieties and even more possible combinations of the variety of species, varieties and cultivars of grasses and/or legumes that are used in the production of hay. Quality also differs wildly in hay depending on growing conditions, when it was cut, when it was harvested, how it was stored, etc. If you sold your neighbor your hay and you got hay back from your neighbor, the hay you got from your neighbor, no matter if it's the same hay or not, will not be in the same condition, same forage combination, same shape as the hay you gave your own neighbor. Also the hay produced one year on your farm is never the same as the hay produced last year or the year before.
