Benefits of Haygain steamed hay

The only scientifically proven way to purify hay and reduce the health threat from respirable dust, mould spores and pathogens.

Haygain HG 2000
  • Respiratory Health

    High temperature steaming in a Haygain reduces airborne respirable dust in hay and haylage by up to 99%. This helps to avoid damaging exposure to respirable dust and acts as a good long term preventative approach to inflammation.

  • Digestive Health

    Providing steamed, clean, palatable forage encourages horses to eat the forage they are given, customers report less wastage as a result too.

  • Hydration

    Steaming hay is a good way to increase water content to offset dehydration. This will depend on water content & maturity of the forage. Earing et al. (2013) found that steaming increased the water content by almost 3 times.

  • Palatability

    Get a waft of steamed hay and you'll want to eat it yourself! Four independent palatability studies demonstrated that steamed hay was more palatable and was on most occasions the preferred choice over dry hay and haylage.
