Orchard Grass ia a cool season grass with flat leaf blades. The leaves vary in colour from green to bluish-green depending on the maturity of the plant.
Orchard Grass is recommended by vegetarians for small herbivores due to its nutritional content and can be mixed with other grass hays. This encourges them to eat more hay and promotes good health. It provides a long-strand fibre source that is needed to improve the digestive and intestinal functions by stimulating the digestive system.
Being fed free-choice hay promotes the animals natural chewing behaviour, helping to prevent dental problems that are very common in small herbivores.
