Excellent quality haylage to suit all requirements
Small Bale Haylage
Our small bales of haylage are ideal for feeding to one or more horses/ponies. They are easy to handle, clean and ensure minimal wastage, making them also ideal for travelling.
Large Bale Haylage
Our large round bales of haylage measure 120cm in diameter and weigh approximately 400kg. These bales are ideal for feeding three or more horses.
At Newhall Farm we have many years’ experience in producing high quality haylage and hay. We understand that good quality forage is the most important aspect of a horse’s diet and therefore work hard to ensure consistency throughout our produce. Our haylage is made from well managed grassland grown specifically for the production of forage. All the stages of haylage and hay production are carried out by ourselves at Newhall Farm allowing us to harvest the crop at the optimum time resulting in the best possible forage. This also allows us to monitor quality throughout the entire process, thus ensuring a top quality end product.
Wrapped haylage stores well and maintains its high nutritional value over a long period of time. However, once opened the quality of the haylage deteriorates rapidly. Depending on weather conditions, an open bale of haylage should be used up within 7-10 days. With this in mind it is important that the correct bale size is chosen to fulfil your requirements.
Newhall Farm Haylage can either be collected by the customer or delivery direct to your stable can be arranged. *Delivery is subject to a minimum order depending on location.
What is the difference between Haylage and Hay?
The main difference between haylage and hay is the moisture content of the preserved grass. Hay is produced from grass which is dried to a moisture content below 14%, whereas haylage should have a moisture content of 25-30%. Haylage is wrapped in plastic in order to prevent aerobic spoilage and to preserve it. This higher moisture content means that haylage is a much closer match to a horse’s natural diet of grass, in terms of both nutritional value and palatability.
