Just Grazin – Benefits

Reduction in hay wastage

Reduction in hay wastage

Just Grazin Custom Nets® contain and protect your valuable hay by reducing the amount of hay that is wasted. Hay wastage occurs particularly when horses/livestock spreading the hay around, trampling it into the dirt/mud and urinating on the hay. Hay can also be lost due to being blown away or across into another paddock/yard. Wastage is a costly expense for all horse/livestock owners. Just Grazin Custom Nets® will keep your hay where its supposed to be!

Reduce Colic, Ulcers, Boredom

Reduce Colic, Ulcers, Boredom

Colic – Slow feeding allows a steady continuous intake of hay, keeping the horse’s stomach full longer and their digestive tract moving.

Ulcers – Slow steady consumption of forage, stimulates saliva which helps to buffer stomach acid, reducing the chance of ulcers developing.

Boredom – Slowed consumption means your horse will spend more time grazin’, as nature intended. This will reduce the chances of stable vices developing due to boredom.

Slowed Consumption

Slowed Consumption

University studies have proven the use of small holed slow feed hay nets reduces the rate by which hay is consumed vs feeding hay loose or feeding with traditional large holed hay nets. Horses naturally graze approx 18hrs a day. Slowed consumption helps to mimic natural grazin’ when horses dont have access to pasture. Steady feeding by way of slowed consumption also helps to maintain insulin levels, especially important for laminitic & cushings affected horses.

May assist with body posture

May assist with body posture

Evidence provided by Sharon May Davis (world renowned Equine Therapist and Scientist) and various body workers has show improvement to posture and body imbalance issues, when horses have been fed “hay high” (for a max of approx 20mins a day). The “browsing posture” engages and strengthens the ventral muscles of the caudal cervical and cranial thoracic vertebrae.

Pasture Management

Pasture Management

Unfortunately, not everyone has acres and acres of pasture for their horses to live on and even those that do, in Australia’s climate we all need to be mindful how we manage our land and our pasture. Sometimes it’s necessary to keep our horses/livestock confined to a dry lot or “sacrifice paddock”, to protect pastures from over grazing. Using a sacrifice paddock with hay supplementation, gives pasture the time it needs to regrow or rest, as once overgrazed, pasture takes A LOT longer to recover. Just Grazin Custom Nets® have an extensive range of hay net’s to assist with feeding out hay during these times, be that a full standard bale or entire round bale thats needed to supply your animals with their necessary fibre requirements while they are off the pasture.

Soaking Hay

Reducing Sugars and Dust

Why Soak Hay? – Studies have shown soaking hay can reduce respirable particle concentration (dust/mold) by at least 88%. Dust particles can cause or worsen respiratory problems. Some horse owners soak their hay to help reduce the amount of sugar content, for their laminitic or insulin resistant horses.

How hay nets help? – Simply fill your Just Grazin Custom Net® with hay, then fully submerge in a wheelie bin or large container (you may need to put a rock or brick on top to keep it down) the hay net keeps the hay together nicely. If soaking hay needs to be a regularly part of your routine, the added bonus is you can install a pulley above the hay net (wet hay can be very heavy) then leave it hanging to drain.

I love Just Grazin Hay Nets, as I am able to provide hay for my whole herd. They all have different feed requirements. Without the net, the pony and cow eat the whole bale and get fat, while the seniors go hungry. With the net they all happily share and there is always some left for everyone. I love the quality and price of Just Grazin Nets, the best I’ve ever had!…
