Hay steamer

Did you know?

Feeding Haygain steamed hay reduces the incidence of horses developing IAD by 63%. An important new study published March 2017 found that feeding horses Haygain steamed hay reduced the incidence of Inflammatory Airway Disease (IAD) by almost two thirds. 

The study also found that 84% of all horses examined were suffering from IAD, and that the main origins of this were bedding and forage.

Scientifically proven

The new study found that feeding your horse Haygain steamed hay reduced the chances of being diagnosed with IAD by an impressive 2.7 times.

Lowest risk using steaming

The study also found that of the different forage options (dry hay, soaked hay, haylage, or Haygain steamed hay) steamed hay not only had the lowest risk but was the ONLY method which significantly decreased the risk of IAD.

Helps the environment

Steaming hay also drastically reduces water consumption, and is pollutant free. Post-soak water is contaminated with bacteria, mould, WSC, proteins and minerals which leach out of the hay.
