Where has all the hay gone?

11 December 2020

I donít need to tell you that hay is scarce this year. Farmers who usually get two cuts were often only able to get one, and that was sometimes a bit on the thin side. With the grass drying up in the summer for many of us, an early start was made on this seasons hay. We rely on hay (or haylage) to replace grazing for our horses through the winter. But there are alternatives and of course Simple System can help out! One you may not have considered is LucieFibre Cubes. These are lower calorie, higher fibre lucerne and can be a useful partial hay replacer and may even work out more economical than some types of haylage. When doing your costings, bear in mind that haylage is usually around 60 Ė 65% dry matter, the rest being water. LucieFibre Cubes are 90% dry matter, so you are not having to buy water! You just add plenty of it before feeding to rehydrate the cubes ready to feed, adding at the same time a lot of bulk to help slow down eating rate. Read more

As temperatures drop

24 November 2020

As the temperature drops our horses may need a little more help to keep their condition. This has been a regular theme on the Feed Line recently and for those horses who need a little bit extra we recommend TopGain. TopGain is great for adding in those extra concentrated calories without having to use huge amounts of feed and will not hot your horse up, which is always an added bonus! Just one bag may be all you need to ensure your horse is topped up as we go into the winter.

TopGain is £24.50 for a 20kg bag and is fed at 100g per 100kg of body weight but this can be given up to triple this amount if it is needed. So an average 500kg horse can have between 500g and 1.5kg per day. TopGain has low levels of sugar & starch and is suitable for all horses. Read more
