Haygain hay steamers
Why Haygain hay steamers?
The Haygain hay steamer has been shown conclusively in scientific trials to kill harmful mold, fungal spores, bacteria and dust mites found in hay; and remove the health threat from respirable dust.
Research has shown that 88% of horses suffer from Inflammatory Airway Disease (IAD) and that steaming hay with a Haygain hay steamer reduces the incidence by 65%.
It has also been proven to increase palatability whilst retaining nutrients.

Effects of IAD?
The signs of respiratory disease aren't always obvious. But the effects can be numerous.
There can be a considerable impact on the quality of the horse's life - coughing, nasal discharge, increased respiratory rate, increased temperature, abnormal breathing, frequent swallowing, and blood in the nostrils.
Also reduced exercise performance as well as slower recovery times.
