Is tight hay any nutritional value for cows. It looks like straw to me.

As said on other thread if it's 85 it will be brite colored and should have son leaf and a stem but it's not tough is cut right . can run 14% or so but can run 4 or 5% If rank . I'll snap a picture of some 10% TIFF 85 this afternoon when I feed cows. It's pretty hay IMO and horse folks feed it here.
