Horse hay suppliers in Minnesota

Quick facts

When buying hay from a private party or from a hay auction, consider the following: 

  • Buy good quality hay. 
  • Inspect several bales and evaluate them for content (grass or alfalfa), maturity (presence or absence of seed heads or flowers), smell, color and touch.
  • Ensure bales are free of mold, dust and weeds. 
  • If possible, have the hay tested for quality before purchase. 
  • Try to keep your hay type (grass or alfalfa) consistent. 

The auctions and individuals listed below are not endorsed by the University of Minnesota. They are meant to serve as a resource for horse owners.

The listed auctions and individuals are not a complete list of resources in the state. Auctions and individuals may not have hay in stock.
