I clicked on 6 to 9, but that's what we've had tested. Is this native bluestem hay or improved bluestem? Was it fertilized? The question is sort of like "what does a steer weigh" which is why you probably don't get an answer from the University or Extension people.

If you do a google search on "feed composition guide" you'll get links to several studies conducted by some PHD of Texas Tech.
