Anderson Hay follows a rigid protocol for insuring traceability of all our products. From planting to harvest, we team with our grower network of family-owned farms specializing in hay and straw production to provide a consistent supply of top quality products to our customers all year round. Our efforts in quality control start with our growers and move through our entire operation. We are committed to supplying safe feed and ensuring that all steps, from traceability and inventory management to processing and transportation, are completed to the individual customer’s specifications.


Our inspection process begins in the fields before harvest. Clean, weed and grass free fields are essential to growing high quality hay. Bales are continuously inspected throughout the production process for quality and foreign material. Each stack is inspected a minimum of five times, three of which are quality control checks of each individual bale.
