You are recommended a large bale net.

All large bale nets come in:

3cm mesh for soft kinds of hay and a little longer extention of the eating time.

3½cm mesh, standard for all hay and all horses.

4cm mesh for coars hay and when reducing waste is more important than exteding eating times.

 

All large bale nets can also be used for many small bales or lots of loose hay.

Barefoot horses can not get stuck in the meshes but horse shoes must be kept at a distance.

RB 220,

Takes a full round bale with a diameter of 140cm = 56".

Available in:

3cm mesh for soft hay and larger eating time extentions.

3½cm mesh, standrad for all hay and all horse.

4cm mesh for when reducing waste is more important than extending eating times.

Made to be used from the bottom, stretched up and secured at the top.

This is the recommended round bale solution.

RBBig 260,

Same as above but takes round bales with a diameter of 180cm = 72".

Even though our nets are extremely strong and would hold for lifting a complete round bale you shoul never hang the bale in the net because the pressure between the net and the hay will be so great that the horses will not manage to get any hay.

RB 155,

Takes a full round bale with a diameter of 140cm = 56".

Is made to be used from the top down. This is not a recommended solution since some horses spend all their free time (and that is a lot) trying to come in under the net and there might be a lot of net laying on top of the hay when the bale is almost gone.

RBBig 175,

Same as above but takes a gigantic round bale with a diameter of 180cm.

FR 230,

Made to cover a full round bale with a diameter of 140cm = 56" standing in the middle of a feed ring with 12 eating spaces.

This is not a recommended solution since some horses spend all their free time (and that is a lot) trying to get his head in under the net.

 

Below are two highly recommended uses of large bale nets. Click on the pictures for full view. The right one is using a "RB 220" for round bales and the left one is using a "RB 155" for a whole bunch of small bales.

 

Lower the net and spread its bottom flat, place the hay on top, lift the net (not the hay) and secure the opening. You don't have to do anything more until the hay is finished.

 

 

Many customers testify that they save 50% hay compared to feeding from open unrestricted bales due to eliminated waste.
