The huge capacity of 140 litres makes Hay Feeder no. 595 suitable for straw-based feed.
Using a feeder for hay is a good idea if one uses alternative bedding for horses instead of straw. But even if straw is used as bedding, it is an advantage using a feeder for hay instead of leaving the hay directly on the floor.
It prevents the horses from spreading the hay all over the stall, resulting in less feed waste. This means less consumption and cost savings. It also means that you can be certain that the horses receive the kilos of hay, which the need.
At the end of the day less hay is stomped into the muck, meaning less wastage goes to the dunghill.
