The color of hay can tell you something about the hay, especially if the hay is being used for feed. Greener hay often means the hay still has a decent amount of nutritional value. The hay should also be dried before it is stored. Hay that is wet could rot and collect mold when it is stored. Hay should be stored in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area.

Portable garages offer great ventilation. Even if you choose to close the portable garage during storage, a ventilator kit will allow for an even air flow and keep humidity levels low.

Hay should not be stored on concrete because concrete can collect moisture. This can cause the hay to rot and mold to form. Try constructing the portable shelter on a natural surface then laying down gravel or pallets to allow ventilation or pallets.

Understanding how to store hay will pay off when it's time to use that hay. Choosing a proper storage facility for your hay will keep the hay in the best possible condition.
