What is a cheap grass seed for hay?

The cheapest grass seed for hay is usually the species of grass that grows most commonly in your area. Naturally, this varies according to where you live. For example, Bermuda grass (though usually seeded by sprigging) may be less expensive to obtain for hay in the northern area of Florida than Smooth Brome grass seed. However, in the central areas of Alberta, Canada, buying Smooth Brome grass seed or Kentucky Bluegrass-mix seed may be cheaper than getting grass seed for something like Big Blue Stem. You will, however, have to check with your local seed supplier for more accurate prices for grass seed for hay.

What should you plant for a hay field for horses and if you answer timothy brome and alfalfa what percentage?

I was actually just talking to this woman I am buying a horse from and we were talking about what needs to be in hay. Try avoiding grass and weeds in your hay. The hay should be green when its rolled and not yellow/brown because there is more protein if it's green. Lots of alfalfa. I can't give a good percentage, but make sure you have lots. I'm not sure about brome... But tomothy isn't as important as alfalfa so I'm just going to say anywhere from 5-25%.
