Selecting a round-bale feeder for use during horse feeding
Round-bales are used throughout the horse industry as a means of providing forage to horses housed in poor pastures, dry lots, or during winter months (1). The cost of hay fed in a round bale package is typically lower on a per ton basis than small square bales.

Slow Feed Netting Explained

The Original 2” is a great place to start feeding your horses. If your goal is to reduce waste but not necessarily your horse's waist line, then this is the net for you. Most horses do very well on this net, but may consume more than desired. This net is great for the following issues:

Colic prone horses
Reducing waste
Herd aggression
Hard keepers
Senior horses

Slow Feed Netting (Slow Feed Extreme / Opening size: 1") The Slow Feed Extreme is our second smallest mesh that we carry and should not be used when introducing a horse to slow feeding. We recommend that horse owners start with the 2” web then over the course of time wean their horse to the 1” mesh web. Horses that don't maintain a good weight using the Slow Feed should be transitioned to the 1”. It's great for the extreme cases of metabolic disorders, for horses that are on stall rest, or for sheep and goats.

Remember that if your horse or goat creates a hole in the net to tie it closed. It is recommended to look closely at the net every day to inspect it for any holes that your animal may get caught up in.

The Slow Feed 1” mesh size is great for slowing down the speed at which your animal consumes hay, making the ration last much longer. Please keep in mind that your animal may become irritated due to the size of the opening. They may start to bite and paw at the net to get at their feed. This net is the next step for animals that may be too “ efficient on the Original (2”") mesh size. This net is great for most metabolisms and offers all the benefits of the Original size with a few extras as well. This mesh size is great for:

Metabolically challenged horses, donkeys and mules
Mini horses, burros, donkeys and mini-mules
Any horses that need to be slowed down
Horses that can't be "free-fed" (allowed access to unlimited hay)

Always offer free choice hay along with your Slow Feed Net until your animals have learned to successfully graze from it.
