Northside Hay Co.


Northside Hay Company was created in 1948 and has been a family owned and operated organization ever since. These days, we purchase baled products almost exclusively for use by our family-owned affiliates. Customers can purchase horse feed products directly from our affiliate, Sacate Pellet Mills.

As Arizona’s largest hay broker since 1948, we have managed to cultivate relationships with the largest and most productive farms in the southwest. We believe that with these resources, we can offer the absolute highest quality product at the most competitive prices around.

Buying Guidelines

What to buy and when to buy it


As a general rule, alfalfa is best suited for dairy use between the months of September and May. During these months, the alfalfa is at its peak protein and digestible nutrient levels, thus making it too rich for horses.

The best time to purchase hay for horses is from June through August. The protein levels have dropped due to the hot weather, and these are the heaviest yielding months for the alfalfa harvest. Historically, for both price and quality suited to horses, these are your best months to buy.

Bermuda Hay

Due its digestive qualities and lower protein when compared to alfalfa, it has become a suggested alternative to feeding alfalfa by many veterinarians around the State of Arizona, depending on the needs of the particular animal, of course. It is produced during the hot summer months and early fall. Look for your best buys between the months of June-August.

Sudan Hay

Typically harvested in the months between June-September, this product is ideal for feeding beef cattle, particularly calves. It is generally less expensive than alfalfa, but also much lower on protein. Sudan is very high on fiber and is heavily exported to Japan for this particular quality.

Timothy Hay

This product is very similar to bermuda hay in its protein levels and feed qualities. It commonly grown in Colorado and is quite expensive when compared to bermuda hay.
