HF Series"Slow-Feed" Covered Hay Feeder
Our slow hay feeder can feed up to 10 horses at a time.
Slow feeding is the healthiest way to feed hay to horses. By recreating natural grazing habits, slow feeding provides a steady stream of fibrous nutrition, critical for maintaining the health of equine digestive tracts. Plus, the right slow hay feeder can reduce feed costs drastically by cutting hay waste to almost zero.
With the HF series, we designed hay slow feeders that could handle groups of up to 8-10 horses. These slow hay feeders allow the feeding of entire large round and large square bales, drastically reducing labor. Our slow hay feeders utilize a creative net panel design to make the transition from loading to feeding as simple as possible – once the bale is loaded, the panels lay down against it so your horses can begin their meal. The net panel comes standard with 2-1/2” holes, but 2″ holes are also an option.
To reduce hay waste and protect horses from potential mold exposure, our slow hay feeders come standard with a 29-gauge metal roof to shield half-eaten bales from the rain. 8 drain holes remove any moisture that does make its way into the trough. The HF series slow hay feeder pays for itself with hay savings, usually within 24 months.
