We started using the HayGain Hay Steamer when one of our horses developed a respiratory infection. This led us to doing a lot of research and finding that hay contains a lot of dust, mold and fungal spores, and bacteria. Steaming also reduces simple sugars in hay by up to 25% which is helpful for horses with laminitis, PSSM, and insulin resistance. The steamer is easy to use and all of our horses have loved the steamed hay! We bought the mid sized unit. We use it daily and take it to shows with us as well. This size has worked well for us to be able to feed several horses each feeding.
Haygain hay steamers help your horse maintain a healthy respiratory and digestive system throughout the year, which can be difficult during the colder months when horses typically are kept inside for long periods of time. Increased exposure to dust from forage, bedding, feed and a lack of stable ventilation can all have a negative effect on your horse’s health. This is why professional trainers, riders and vets all over the world over use Haygain.
