How to use Eclipse Haylage

Eclipse Haylage is full of the natural goodness of grass without the nutrient losses associated with hay making. It should not be treated just as a “filler”. As a result you are able to reduce your horses’ concentrate ration thus saving money and avoiding familiar problems associated with high concentrate diets.

Suggested Feeding Rates

Rate for feeding haylage is 1.5% of body weight for maintenance topped up with concentrates.

This may vary depending on horse workload and temperament.
