Why Burgess Hay is so good
There are three parts to a Burgess Hay plant, all of which provide the ideal feed for herbivores. Hay for feeding small pets should contain approximately 7% protein and 30% fibre. Varieties such as Burgess Hay are better quality than Teff and Eragrostis hays in South Africa because they have a high fibre content, are more palatable and great for chewing and maintaining healthy teeth. Teff and Eragrotis hay in South Africa on the other hand is a softer, finer, less fibrous type of hay.
