In agriculture, dried feed .

Typical hay crops are timothy , alfalfa , and clover . Usually the material is cut in the field while still green and then either dried in the field or mechanically dried by forced hot air. Balers compress hay into tightly packed rectangular or cylindrical bales tied with wire or twine.
