  • Natural fibre source – Hay Cubes are a natural, nutritionally consistent alternative source of forage.
  • Retained fibre length – Hay is coarsely chopped to maintain an ideal fibre length and then compressed into 32mm Hay Cubes.
  • Nonselective foraging – Hay Cubes use the entire plant, ensuring no selective foraging occurs.
  • Easy to digest – Hay Cubes take longer to chew, which increases saliva production for easier digestion.
  • Suitable for senior horses – Hay Cubes are easy to chew for horses with worn or damaged teeth.
  • Portion control – Feed by weight not volume. The consistent weight of Hay Cubes allows for quick and easy feed preparation.
  • Minimal dust – occurs in Hay Cubes which can assist horses with respiratory problems.
  • Don’t waste – substantial amounts of hay or chaff in the elements.

Introducing Hay Cubes

  • Gradually introduce soaked Hay Cubes into your horse’s diet over a 14 day period.
  • Soak the hay cubes (1:1 ratio) in cold (1 hour) or warm (30 mins) water until properly softened.
  • After 14 days you can reduce the water gradually to feed the hay cubes dry, or if your horse prefers, they can continue to be fed soaked.
  • Offering Hay Cubes in smaller pieces as a treat allows horses and ponies to readily accept the alternative form.

 

Feeding Recommendations

  • Always feed by weight not volume.
  • Horses require a minimum of 1.5% of body weight (kg) of forage per day.
  • For example 4.5kg per day for a 300kg pony or 7.5kg for a 500kg horse.
  • Forage requirements depend on pasture availability, horse’s weight, age, size, condition and work level.
  • Fresh drinking water should always be available.
  • Consult a qualified nutritionist to develop a complete feeding plan specifically for your horse.

 

Storage

Like all stockfeeds, Hay Cubes must be stored in a cool, dry well ventilated area out of direct sunlight and protected from vermin.
