Half Bale Hay Net
We use UV stabilized, heat treated, top quality polyethylene netting to create our Original Knotted Mini Hay Nets. Designed to endure our harsh Australian climate, and with square mesh netting so it doesnt close up as the hay is consumed (unlike diamond mesh which makes it difficult to get the last of the hay out). 
Netting Size – 4cm
Are you looking for a hay net to slow down your horses hay consumption?
Do you feed good quality hay and want to reduce the waste?
For slow feeding hay, the most common netting size is 4cm x 4cm. It is the most popular netting as it’s a versatile general purpose netting size, suitable for the majority of hay types. The most ideal size for reducing hay waste and slowing consumption. 60ply netting is used in our 4cm nets, which are green in color.

Half Bale Slow Feed Hay Net

…..”These nets are fantastic to aid in making the hay last longer. We have had our nets for over 18 months and they’re still going strong with regular use, we even have one on our round bale now that has been out for almost two weeks and the hay is still half there, whereas it would have been spread and demolished within the first week/week and a half without it”…. Jacinta Day – Barefoot Equine Services a valued customer of Just Grazin

3cm Netting

Is your horse an expert at using a slow feeder hay net?
Does the traditional 4cm netting not seem quite small enough?
Own laminitic ponies, miniature horses, or feed high-quality hay to your horses?
3cm netting works best with high quality leafy hay, because animals and horses usually eat that type of hay quickly. 3cm netting is also suitable for minis, goats, sheep, etc. We recommend using 3cm x 3cm netting only if your animal is familiar with slow feed hay nets. If horses are not familiar with slow feed hay nets, they might be frustrated by this size netting. However some animals are happy to graze straight away from the 3cm net without any issues. Our 3cm range is available in 48ply black netting.

6cm Netting

Sick and tired of hay being spread around and wasted?
6cm netting is ideal for reducing hay waste while also slowing consumption. Also ideal for hay of lower quality & cereal hays. All of our 6cm netting is a robust 60ply thickness, black in colour.
Note: All horses/animals should have larger hooves than the size of the netting. Because foals and minis have relatively small feet, 6cm is not recommended. When using with small footed animals, ensure their feet cannot access the net, as they could become tangled. Listed on our FAQ’s page are ideas on how to use slow feed hay nets with shod or small footed animals.

*When using slow feed hay nets, horses and livestock must be free of buckled halters and rugs. If your horse is shod, make sure the net is out of reach of their hooves. If not, the netting must be contained in some way that can prevent hooves from accessing it. You can find more information on net containment ideas on our FAQ page. Livestock with horns should not use slow feed hay nets because they may become caught in the netting and injured, and their horns may damage the netting.

* 30 Day returns on all hay nets. Returns policy can be found here
