All our hay and haylage is grown specifically for the purpose intended. The hay comes from established parkland and the haylage comes from five year predominantly Rye Grass leys
What is Haylage?
Haylage is grass, cut just like hay but, instead of being allowed to dry out completely, it is baled when the moisture content is still relatively high. Dust and spores are retained along with the moisture and will not become airborne when the bale is opened.
The bales are immediately wrapped in multiple layers of polythene to exclude all air from the bale and allow a mild fermentation to take place to preserve the bale with no waste. During the production of our haylage it is treated with 'Ecosyl' this is a yeast based product that preserves the grass to a greater degree and ensures a mould free product that can also be fed much sooner after production than normally.
The haylage is then left for 4 to 6 weeks when each batch will be laboratory analysed to check not only the nutritional levels but also for moulds and spores. Assuming that the results meet our high standards, the haylage is then ready for feeding.
