Tifton 44 Hay Roll
When compared to Coastal Hay, Tifton 85 has a higher protein, higher digestibility, higher fiber, lower sugar, and lower starch content.
Many vets recommend horses that have weight, laminitis or founder issues to be on a diet strictly of Tifton due to its low sugar content. Tifton is also great for HYPP horses and can be one of the only hays that some HYPP horses do well on. Because Tifton has a broader leaf and stem structure, there are less cases of impaction as well.
