Horse Hay As A Cash Crop?

The rural landscape in Ontario is changing, and we are seeing more and more horse farms. There are about 300,000 horses in Ontario, and the numbers are increasing. To put this in context, there are about 350,000 dairy cows and an equal number of dairy heifers. There are also approximately 400,000 beef cows, an equal number of beef calves, and about another 450,000 cattle on feed. The U.S. has over 9 million horses. Many of these are located in the eastern States, within trucking distance from Ontario.
