Avoiding waste and learning how to better manage hay will be key in this fight against price hikes. Learn about the solutions and tips the Harrison Horse Care team recommends for reducing waste and managing resources wisely, while always keeping your horse’s well-being first.

Forager helps you not to waste hay

Forager, the slow-feeder with great health benefits for your horse, helps you avoid wasting hay that is usually lost in large quantities in the bedding or on the ground and ends up being trampled and thrown away.

Usually the use of hay nets results in great waste, in paddocks and stalls, as horses shake them to be able to feed.

The ground feeder keeps the hay separate from the bedding and soil and allows your horse to eat in a correct and natural position, with longer chewing times because of the adjustment grid, promotes digestion and avoids boredom.

Many benefits in one product, many positive features with one purpose, which is your horse’s health.

Use forage as a partial substitute for hay

To use hay more sparingly or find a partial alternative, it may be useful to supplement the horse’s diet with quality forage that is increasingly being used in most diets. Besides saving hay, forage has great benefits on your horse’s nutrition.

Forages are fiber-rich foods and provide high-quality nutrients that are easily assimilated and digested. They also function as a natural buffer to prevent excess acidity and other diseases of the digestive system.

High Fibre Light Chaff, for example, is a completely hay replacement line because it is lighter than other forages and simpler in formulation.

Our forages are longer fiber than others, are fully dusted and ready to use. They are also not pressed foods during production; this process can bring moisture and fermentation and related problems to the digestive system. Given the rapid inflation of hay prices, incorporating high-fiber forages into your horse’s diet can provide benefits on several levels: cost savings, dietary supplementation and health benefits.
