Our Hay

It can be pretty hard to find decent quality hay, you probably know if you’re reading this, hay available in the shops can be hit and miss. Lots of harmful dust usually chopped up and questionable quality.
Our business provides the total opposite, Best high quality hay with the choice of different textures, full length and not chopped and in addition to this our unique dust removal process eliminates practically all the harmful and damaging air borne dust.
There are different types too which you can mix and match for a variety or just find one type that may be preferred over another.

American Timothy HayAmerican Grown Timothy Hay

This has come a long way!

Imported and grown in the states of Oregon and Washington in America, where their hot summers make it an ideal growing climate for this hay.
Its consistent top quality makes it recoginised as one of the best hays you can buy in the world.

Its hard to find anything else that comes up to this standard.

Soft HaySoft Hay

Softer hay comes from longer established meadows that may have not been ploughed and reseeded for decades, here more native less vigorous grass’s will grow such as cocksfoot, timothy,sweet vernal along with lots of herbage too, may not have the best feed value but certainly has the “wow factor” when it comes to smell!

Stalky Seed HayStalky Seed Hay

Stalky Hay is from fields, re-seeded maybe  up to 4, 5,6 years old, the hay is reasonably coarse.

As its relativley young grass it has thicker stems and more feed value, if its not re-seeded it will slowly be taken over by the more traditinal meadow grasses and gradually revert back to a softer hay. Can be quite yellow sometimes in colour (sometimes wrongley mistaken for straw)

English TimothyEnglish Timothy

This is the UK version of the American Western Timothy.

Difficult to grow to this standard in the UK here as it needs a good summer and lots of luck! This is an alternative to the more expensive American grown.

Barley StrawBarley Straw

This is grown and has to be replanted every year.The barley is harvested with a combine that thrashes the grain from the straw. The grain goes for animal feed or brewing while the straw is a good source of fibre for animal feed and can also be used as bedding.

Not to be confused with wheat straw which is used for bedding.

 

Dust is a problem with all hay and unless it has been subject to an additional and extra process it’s extremely likely that there will still be a good percentage of dust in the bale. (Click on the images below to show the videos)

Claims of hay that has been baled up in the field as normal being dust free are misleading and hay that has been through any dust removal process is extremely hard to source and the efficiency of the process may also come into question and it seems acceptable but misleading to say something is dust extracted even though it may have only removed a very small proportion.

Dust Free Hay Dust Free Hay

Airborne dust, that’s the very fine particles you may only probably see in a shaft of sunlight are the most harmful, the combination of this along with an enclosed space are ultimately going to have serious health issues and consequences not only for the animal but also those looking after them. Our purpose made system is extremely efficient at removing just about all this airborne dust, greatly reducing the risk of any respiratory problems arising from this often over looked hazard.

Once thoroughly cleaned we bale the hay up only a couple of days before dispatch using woven poly-propylene sacks and cardboard boxes, these are recyclable and most practical packaging we have found.
