Before the pioneers built hay lofts and long before balers, they would make water repellent stacks in the hay fields and meadows to be used in the winter. When this failed, the cows would brows on cedar bows in the swamps during the winter.
"Poor quality hay is dry, bleached out and coarse-stemmed. Sometimes, hay stored outdoors will look like this on the outside but still be green inside the bale. A dried, bleached or coarse bale is still edible and provides some nutritional value as long as it is dry and not moldy, dusty, or rotting." Wikipidia
