Description

This presentation will focus on the latest research aimed at optimizing hay use when feeding horses. Strategies include using different types of feeders to reduce hay waste, using slow-feed hay nets to reduce horse stress and extend foraging time, and the impact of hay soaking and steaming on hay quality and horse intake. Tips on purchasing and storing hay and sources of additional information pertaining to feeding hay will also be briefly discussed.
