What is Haylage?
Haylage is a type of forage that goes through a similar process to hay. The grass for haylage is baled sooner than hay to allow it less drying time. This ensures there is enough moisture in the bale to suppress dust particles. Haylage bales are wrapped straight after baling to seal in the nutrients and to allow natural fermentation of the bales to take place which preserves the haylage. The result is a clean, sweet smelling bale which horses find hard to resist. Haylage must be kept in multiple layers of sealed bale wrap to avoid mould forming in the bale.
