The Haylage Company has been producing and supplying top quality haylage since 1990.
Our ‘Polo Forage’ haylage surpasses best quality hay as feed for horses and because it is dust and spore free it eliminates possible respiratory issues.
Our haylage is grown on 750 acres of managed pasture in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Essex. This also helps to minimise our carbon footprint.
After cutting, the grass is immediately tight wrapped to exclude air from the bales. Haylage inoculants are added at the point of wrapping to encourage more efficient utilisation of lactic acid in the rumen of the horse. Inoculants also improve fibre digestibility.
Because the haylage is tight wrapped and packed storage space is minimised and there is very little wastage.
Feeding guide - an average 16 hand horse will consume 10kgs daily. If in any doubt advice should be sought from an equine dietician.
