About Western Hay

Welcome to Western Hay, your trusted Western Australian stockfeed business specialising in fibrous fodder products such as hay and chaff. Owned and operated by Richard and Melissa Rose, Western Hay is an efficient and innovative team dedicated to producing top quality products for your livestock.

Quality assurance is at the forefront of everything we do. We ensure that all our hay undergoes mandatory core sampling to test feed values and detect the presence of Annual Ryegrass Toxicity (ARGT) on applicable fodder types. Our rigorous standards guarantee that you receive only the finest products for your animals.

Quality Perfected Over Decades

The Rose Family has been farming in WA's Wheatbelt for more than a century. Beginning in Cunderdin at the turn of the 20th century, the family moved to the rolling hills near New Norcia after World War II.

Western Hay proudly carries forward the legacy established by Richard's father, John Rose, who transitioned to hay production in the 1980s following the decline of the wool industry. Surrounded by hay crops from an early age, Richard developed a passion for producing high-quality cereals. By 15 Richard had started his own hay contracting and share farming venture. In 2006, Richard and his wife Melissa purchased a 172-acre plot next door to the family farm and founded Western Hay.


Today, we boast a state-of-the-art chaff mill equipped with cutting-edge technology, incorporating steam and an extensive dust extraction system. Western Hay continues the tradition of producing superior fodder, perfected over generations, and sustainably farmed year after year.
