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.

Even that I don't bale my Bluestem grass anymore in the past we tested at a local Ag Institute and that I recall it was inbetween 6-9%.
