 WHAT IS HAYLAGE? 

 • It is a replacement for hay.
 • Grasses grown and cut in the same way as for hay but left to dry for less time (approximately 30-40% moisture) 
• Bales are wrapped straight after baling and compress to approximately two thirds of the original size. 
• Natural fermentation preserves the grass as haylage (about 90% feed value of grass). 
• Haylage can be thought of as highly nutritional hay and without dust and spores. 
• Horse haylage, is not the same as silage (silage is a fermented, high moisture feed and usually not suitable for horses). 

 WHY FEED HAYLAGE? 

 • Haylage is a very good source of fibre 
• Fibre is vital for the movement of food along the digestive system.
 • Horses are designed for browsing - eating little but often, therefore slowly chewing haylage is more desirable than a bucket of hard feed eaten in a couple of minutes. 
• Feeding haylage can provide as much energy and protein as a hard feed, therefore saving money and being much kinder to the digestive system 
• Replacing some or all hard feed with good quality haylage for horses could also help to reduce boredom in the stable. 
• To avoid respiratory problems in future or aid in managing a current respiratory disease. 
 • Replace the need for soaking hay - especially when water might freeze, haylage needs no soaking.
