Since KM is out of bluegrass I figured I would try the feed stores and buy a bale. Most of them only have grass hay mixed with alfalfa. Is this OK for my pigs? I have a 6 year old, 1 year old and 6 month old. Is there a specific type I should be asking for?

Piggies should only have alfalfa for the first 6 months. Ask for hay that does not have alfalfa mixed it. They do have it that way. It may be hard to find, but it is out there.

See if they have bermuda if you can't find orchard or timothy without alfalfa. If I can't get orchard that's what I get.
