Signature Series Western Timothy Hay 28 oz
I have been using Oxbow purchased in the 50 lb. size to keep cost down. Lately it has become very "sticky" and I would guess my Guinea Pigs are leaving behind almost 70% of the material. I purchased this product in the 128oz size, on sale, and the cost became similiar to the Oxbow 50lb size.
I would estimate it produces about 5% powder and another 10% which my Guinea Pigs won't eat. Therefore, not only does their cages not fill up with the excess hay but 15% waste vs 70% waste make this product much cheaper than the Ozbow.
The material is smaller in size which my pigs had to adjust to but they do like the product and I would recommend this to anyone.

excellent timothy hay!
I ordered two large bags to replace our first order - it's so fresh and healthy smelling. Our guinea pig just loves it. Will order again - great price for an excellent product.

Our pet loves it and it is not very expensive to buy. Cheaper than our local stores.

My chinchillas love these timothy hay bundles
I have a family of pet chinchillas living in my basement. (Yes, they are all in cages, unless one sneaks out.) I used to feed Wyoming hay cubes from a high quality supplier, but the cubes were highly compressed to facilitate use in hay feeding tubes. My chins would ignore them until they ran out of pellets. I wound up throwing a lot away. Worse yet, the shipping charges for the cubes were more than the price of the hay.
The hay bales from Fosters & Smith are not compressed more than a typical farmer's hay bale, so I can feed convenient "flakes" of hay to my critters. They love it and eat it FIRST. Rough hay is better for them than a diet high in pellets. Fosters & Smith's has free shipping on orders over $50, so the slightly higher cost of F&S hay is offset by less waste and reduced shipping.
