How do they work?

Developed and tested with The University of Bristol and The Royal Agricultural University, UK, Haygain's hay steamer has two unique features: 

  • Patented manifold system which is designed in a deltoid configuration resulting in the most effective way for injecting high temperature steam evenly throughout the whole bale of hay. A bale of hay is steamed from the inside out! 

  • Thermally double insulated chest which enables the injected steam to reach ultra high temperatures, around 100oc. The aluminium materials used for the manifold, help to raise the temperature in the chest, increasing the efficiency of the unit.

  • Robust steam generator which ensures the steam can reach over 100oc effectively killing the mold, fungi, yeast and bacteria and reducing up to 99% of resirable dust particles.

“I love using Haygain Steamed Hay because it helps improve my horses’ respiratory conditions and stops them from coughing, with Haygain’s help, I can make sure the hay wherever I go is never dusty and it’s bacteria free, so my horses don’t have any issues during competitions."

Owners

Horse owners, just like you, swear by Haygain.   


"Rumi used to dunk his hay in the water trough. That was great for hydration, but made a terrible mess. Plus, wet hay can be a petri dish of bacteria growth if left uneaten for even a short period of time. Hay dunking is another thing of the past since Rumi began on steamed hay."

How can I fit steaming into my daily routine?

Steaming hay with Haygain couldn't be easier, as is fitting it into your daily routing. Steaming takes around an hour and your steamer can be fitted with a timer to switch it off at the right time. During this time you can get on with your daily routine or riding your horse. 


Steamed hay can be fed straight away, but it can also be left in a Haygain Bale Bag or a clean environment for up to 24 hours. This allows you to steam hay in advance.
