There are numerous kinds of hay, some of them specific to certain locales. Most are types of grass mixes. Alfalfa is different though, it is a legume (higher in calcium and protein that most grass hays). Alfalfa is so specialized that it should be rationed for some animals, and excluded from the diet of others, as it is too rich for some.

Straw is pretty devoid nutrients and should only be used for bedding, not for food.
