Mark and Marty Forbes have been growing and supplying wholesale lucerne hay from our Clarkes Hill farm for the past 25 years. We supply lucerne to everyone from thoroughbred trainers to dairy farmers throughout Victoria.
Our lucerne hay is available in small and large square bales, and also available in new compact bales.
We also have clover hay, pasture hay, and straw available in conventional small square bales.

New Compact Lucerne Hay Bales
Introducing our new compact lucerne bales!
- These compact bales are made for export, and contain only the highest quality lucerne, with protein levels above 20%, and metabolic energy levels around 10 MJ/kg. A Feedtest for our compact bales is available here.
- A compact bale weighs about the same as a conventional small square bale.
- Compact bales are about 1/3 the size of a conventional small square bale, and are much easier to handle and store.
- Compact bales feed out into 10 biscuits each, exactly like a normal bale.
- Because compact bales are compressed, animals can’t separate the stalk from the leaves, and so they leave less waste than conventional bales.
- All compact bales have been x-rayed for QA, and contain no foreign materials.
- Best of all, compact bales are cheaper than normal bales since they’re so easy to handle and transport.
Compact lucerne hay bales are now $13 + GST per bale.
Lucerne Hay – Conventional Small Square Bales
Our small square bales come in a range of qualities, from top quality lucerne used by several local thoroughbred trainers, to garden mulch, or anything in between.
Our best quality lucerne is currently $15 + GST in conventional bales.
We also have some 2012 season lucerne for $13 + GST. This lucerne has lost some of its colour because it’s 18 months old, but has been shedded, and still makes good horse feed.
Lucerne Hay – Big Square Bales
Big square bales are 8’x4’x3′, and weigh about 600kg each.
Feed tests are available for our large bales of lucerne on request.
Big square bales of lucerne are currently $300 per bale + GST.
We have straw available in conventional small square bales.
Grown and baled locally, it makes great bedding for animals, or seating for parties.
Straw is available for $9 + GST per bale
We also have premium oaten chaff available in 30kg bags.
Oaten chaff is currently $19 + GST per bag.
This chaff is grown and cut locally, and is made from rolls of oaten hay, and is great quality.
