A major perk of getting a blend is that you are able to mix the variety of nutrients that is received. There is not as much protein has a pure alfalfa hay bale, but more than a pure grass hay bale. This is something to consider when determining the purpose that you are attempting to accomplish when deciding which route to go when selecting your blend.
