whats the difference between straw and hay?i thought they were the same thing.
Hay is soft and has nutritional value and straw is thick, corse and has no nutritional value - Straw is better used for bedding.
Straw is what's left after you harvest the grain. Hay is the whole plant, cut, dried and baled.
