Hay is an edible dried grass. Sources range from alfalfa to timothy to native grasses.

Straw is the leftover stems from various grains, usually oats. It has no nutritional value and is used for bedding in barns and pens.

 HAY = STRAW

Hay is forage - typically grasses and legumes - that is cut/dried/baled for livestock consumption when regular forage is not available.

Straw is a byproduct of grain production, the stems left behind after the dried seedheads are harvested. It's typically used for livestock bedding and for horticultural use like erosion prevention and moisture retention on freshly worked soil. Some straws are multi-purpose; barley straw for example constitutes edible bedding.

Barley straw is also used for limiting algae or bacteria levels in ponds and can command a price of $90-100 a bale in the north (Michigan) where we don't grow it. Oat or wheat straw has been used for eons especially in the southwest as a building material either mixed in with adobe or in bale form then covered with adobe. This Old House had an episode on this back in the late 1980's early '90's.

Last summer I bought hay anywhere from 50 cents a bale to $1.75 per bale.

Around here hay is usually cheaper than straw.

Wow!

Here we pay no less than $5 per bale for a decent quality mold free grass bale. Alfalfa is usually a little cheaper (good hay, no mold) but sometimes things get tight, and they will go for the same price.

Don't use HAY in a Garden, for you will have WEEDS for years to come.
STRAW is good for gardens because the seeds are gone and it will create a cover that prevents weeds from growing.

You need a *REALLY* big combine ......... Rolling on the floor laughingMAO !!!

Sorry, old landscaping joke.

It's not really straw, it's the dead needles that the tree sheds constantly as new ones grow to replace them. Some types of pine the needles stay soft and pliable. They are gathered and sold as mulch.

Best of luck.
