I've been really allergic and sick since starting to feed the four piggers timothy. I called my mama today (not an age reference, I'm WELL over eighteen, ha ha) because she has my really old allergy test results on file. The results? VERY allergic to timothy and bluegrass hay.

I'm going to get another allergy test done as soon as I can, so I have updated results, but in the meantime I'm going to switch hay! The test says NOT allergic to meadow hay or brome. Which one of those would be the best alternative for the piggers?

I've read a lot of pigs don't like brome, meadow seems to be a hit though.

The allergy test didn't say anything about orchard grass, but it did say that I'm allergic to bluegrass.

KM's bluegrass isn't regular bluegrass. It's actually blue orchard grass.

I'm in Canada, so I'll have to find a source other than KM for hay.

Doesn't Oxbow deliver to Canada? If so then try Orchard grass.
I'm allergic to Timothy too but I do fine with the 3rd cut.
