Made from premium tested leafy green lucerne and export quality oaten hay, our Lucerne & Oaten Hay Cubes offer the ideal quality forage alternative to hay or chaff.

Suitable for all horses and ponies in work or needing extra weight gain or those who cannot handle full lucerne.

Premium Australian hay is coarsely chopped to maintain an ideal fibre length which is then compressed using high pressure and temperature to form our Hay Cubes. This unique process produces cubes that are highly palatable, easily digested, and free from any additives.

Hay Cubes are the ideal base for any feed ration.

Introducing Hay Cubes

  • Gradually introduce soaked Hay Cubes into your horse’s diet over a 14 day period.
  • Soak the hay cubes (1:1 ratio) in cold (1 hour) or warm (30 mins) water until properly softened.
  • After 14 days you can reduce the water gradually to feed the hay cubes dry, or if your horse prefers, they can continue to be fed soaked.
  • Offering Hay Cubes in smaller pieces as a treat allows horses and ponies to readily accept the alternative form.

Feeding Recommendations

  • Always feed by weight not volume.
  • Horses require a minimum of 1.5% of body weight (kg) of forage per day.
  • For example 4.5kg per day for a 300kg pony or 7.5kg for a 500kg horse.
  • Forage requirements depend on pasture availability, horse’s weight, age, size, condition and work level.
  • Fresh drinking water should always be available.
  • Consult a qualified nutritionist to develop a complete feeding plan specifically for your horse.

Storage

Like all stockfeeds, Hay Cubes must be stored in a cool, dry well ventilated area out of direct sunlight and protected from vermin.
