About Haygain

Haygain began when a group of riding enthusiasts in southern England became concerned about the coughing, nasal discharge, and other respiratory problems they observed in their horses.

They suspected that the airborne respirable particles naturally found in forage were the problem. Soaking hay, the centuries-old method of removing these particles, obviously wasn’t effective. High-temperature steaming, on the other hand, seemed an excellent option.

Following two years of research and development in cooperation with the Royal Agricultural University, the first manufactured Haygain Hay Steamer was launched on the equestrian market at the British Equestrian Trade Association Trade Fair in 2009. A UK patent was granted the same year.
The Science

Effective in reducing airborne respirable dust in hay by up to 99%

Kills the mold, fungal spores, bacteria and yeast that can cause equine asthma and chronic respiratory inflammation

Reduces the odds of having Inflammatory Airway Disease by 65%

Maintains nutrition and digestibility

The Benefits

Supports Respiratory Health
Post-Workout Recovery
Maintains Hydration
Increases Palatability
Supports healthy skin & coat
Optimise Performance 
The Technology
Robust steam 
generator
Haygain Boilers ensures the steam can reach over 100oc effectively killing the mold, fungi, yeast and bacteria and reducing up to 99% of respirable dust particles. 
Patented manifold system
The Patented Manifold design features a deltoid configuration resulting in the most effective way for injecting high temperature steam evenly throughout the whole bale of hay. The hay is steamed from the inside out! 
Thermally double insulated chest
Haygain chests enable the injected steam to reach ultra high temperatures, around 212ºF. The aluminium materials used for the manifold, help to raise the temperature in the chest, increasing the efficiency of the unit.
How to Use
FAQ's

My horse does not cough and appears healthy – do I need a Haygain?

Exposure to respirable particles such as mould spores and bacteria can induce allergic responses and develop a hypersensitivity reaction in the horse. Even the best quality hays are high in respirable particles. These particles form the “dust” that you cannot see (they are less than 5 µm in size), and have a 50% chance of being inhaled deep into the lungs, causing the respiratory disorder Recurrent Airway Obstruction (RAO). Minimising the amount of “dust” your horse is subjected to will help to prevent respiratory problems.

My horse has COPD/RAO/Heaves can I feed Haygain steamed hay?

Yes, absolutely! Respiratory diseases can be effectively managed by minimising respirable dust, mould spores and bacteria in the horse’s environment, particularly those in the horse’s breathing zone. Since hay contains high concentrations of these and the horse’s nose is in the hay while it is eating, it is vitally important to reduce this source of dust by steaming the hay.

Will my horse stop coughing?

Results are often reported within days of using the Haygain but do depend on the individual horse, the cause of the cough and other environmental factors. For example if you change to feeding Haygain steamed hay but the horse remains on a dusty straw bed, while you will probably see some improvement it will be compromised by the other source of respirable dust. Equally if you make changes to your horse’s feeding and management regime but the horses stabled either side, sharing the same air space have dry hay and straw bed then again the improvement may not be as marked.

What is the difference between soaking and steaming?

Soaking hay will dampen the spores down and make them swell so they are less likely to be inhaled.

With steaming the combination of the heat and the moisture actually kills the spores, eliminating the allergenic respirable particles.

What makes Haygain stand apart from other hay steamers

Haygain is the only scientifically proven system to kill mould spores including Aspergillus, as well as bacteria and dust mites. The nutritional value and goodness are maintained with improved palatability.

How much water will be used?

The hay will absorb and therefore hydrate bringing it back towards its original moisture content, approximately 15+% of its original weight but the hay is neither soggy or heavy. The HG-PB (HG2000/HG600) will actually use about 4 ½ litres of water per cycle, some will be absorbed by the hay, some will be released as steam when you open the lid and some will be the residue of on average a tea-cup amount of water (condensed steam) which remains from each steam cycle and drains out of the drain hole in the bottom of the hay chest.For example if you are using an HG2000 and paying 10 pence per Kw hour it will cost 27.5p per hour.


Does the outside of the container get hot?

All of the Haygain range are made from composite materials with highly efficient thermal properties so although the inside of the container can reach over 100 degrees C the outside is just warm to touch. Therefore, Haygain hay steamers are environmentally friendly and energy saving.

Can I steam haylage?

Absolutely! Haygain will improve the hygienic quality of any forage. Scientific studies have also shown it will increase the shelf life of haylage by up to 4 days.

Once steamed, how long before you feed the hay and how long does it last?

The hay is very hot when you first take it out and should be handled with care but it cools very quickly once in the air and can be fed immediately. It is best fed while it is warm and steamy and it would appear most horses prefer it like this but otherwise should be used within 24 hours.

What does steamed hay look and feel like?

Steamed hay is totally different to soaked hay and is damp rather than wet. The treatment is not about how wet it is but how hot it is. You will find the hay in the middle of the bale/ hay net will be quite dry. This is because when the steam comes out of the spikes it is at it’s hottest. As the steam travels through the hay and meets the plastic lid it will cool slightly, condense to water and drop back on to the hay. This results in the outside of the hay being wetter than the inside.

Does it matter if the hay dries out?

It is best fed while it is warm, straight out of the Haygain but you will find it cools and dries rapidly as soon as the air gets to it. This has no effect on the hygienic quality or palatability. We recommend feeding the hay within 24 hours to prevent contamination from environmental sources.
