Texas Haynets will help horse and livestock owners save money, keep their hay clean and their animals healthier! Although it was originally created to help with nutritional needs, it saves a considerable amount of money. Designed for 5' to 6' round bales, but can be used for smaller bales too. Net has 1.75" holes and is made from a 3 mm heavy-duty marine-grade polypropylene with UV protection.
Suitable for all grass eating or grazing livestock like cattle, Llama, Alpaca, sheep or goats, provided they DO NOT have horns. Depending on your livestock's eating habits and local conditions, these nets hold up very well in adverse conditions. They should retain their structural integrity for a minimum of 1 year and can last as long as 3-4 years.
The Texas Haynet, in many cases, will slow down fast and aggressive eaters, allowing their systems to adjust to a more normal rate of consumption. It will keep them occupied longer and will aide in preventing boredom and vices. It is also an ideal situation for insulin-resistant horses. Additionally, it will allow timid animals to feed alongside more aggressive one's, keeping the aggressor "working for" their food while allowing the timid animal to get the nutrition they need. An ideal tool to reduce "hay bellies," help overweight horses lose weight and allow thinner, and "hard keeper" horses to put on the weight they need at a healthier rate.
