What is the difference between mix and cubes?

With redmills feeds the only difference is the texture. The same ingredients are used in both their cubes and mixes and both are carefully cooked to improve digestibility. For horses that are fussy eaters mixes work best as they have an interesting texture and are very sweet. Cubes can be soaked and are dust free so are ideal for horses with allergies and for old horses that need a soft diet for easy chewing. Both are nutritious and delicious!

Haylage    

Forage is an essential basis of the feeding program of all horses and ponies. Eclipse Haylage is the ideal forage for your horses and ponies. Eclipse haylage is grown on carefully selected Calcium rich soil, using a unique combination of tetraploid and diploid Ryegrass and Timothy grass seeds. Grasses are grown and harvested in a similar way to hay, but is left to dry until it has approximately 30 –40% moisture content before baling. Natural fermentation in the wrapped bales preserves the grass as haylage and it has about 90% the feed value of grass. The grass is rotated within a cereal production system. This method assists in the management of soil nutrients and also eliminates weed problems which are common with long term pastures.

Eclipse Haylage is completely natural, dust free forage. It contains no additives, no preservatives, no mould inhibitors, and no flavourings. It is 100% naturally preserved grass.

Benefits of Eclipse Haylage

Provides Essential Fibre

Haylage is a very good source of nutritious fibre as fibre is vital for the movement of food along the digestive system.

  • Eclipse Haylage contains digestible fibre which is broken down in the hind gut of the horse to provide energy.
  • It also supplies the roughage necessary to stimulate the gut to aid food passage, helping to maintain digestive function.
  • Longer Chewing Time : The fibre satisfies the horse’s psychological need to chew and also helps to reduce boredom in the stable

Healthy Breathing

Eclipse Haylage is dust free and a safe alternative for horses suffering from Respiratory disorders; combined with correct dust reducing management your horses’ breathing problems can be greatly improved.

Eclipse Haylage can also help prevent respiratory problems developing initially, particularly in young stock. A point often missed by breeders and producers of young valuable animals.

Nutritious

Top Quality feed, high in vitamins and minerals suitable for the nutritional requirements of all equine from brood mare to young stock to high performers in all disciplines, horse racing,showjumping, and eventing.

After a period of storage, the vitamin levels in hay deteriorate as the grass is exposed to the air. The unique packaging system of Eclipse haylage maintains the higher levels of these important minerals and vitamins in the haylage.

The B Complex Vitamins, which are involved in feed utilization, blood building, hoof condition and many other areas of metabolism, are retained in Eclipse haylage whereas after several months of storage, most hay samples have negligible levels of these vitamins.

Healthier coat, skin and hooves

Excellent source of quality protein needed by all horses for their growth and development, helping to keep them fit, strong and healthy.

Natural

No artificial preservatives or acids are used to make Eclipse Haylage.

It is 100% naturally preserved grass.

Eclipse Haylage is a palatable and sweet smelling feed and our quality control ensures each bale is consistent. The double layer of wrap ensures freshness of our products from field to your yard.

Affordable & convenient

Eclipse Haylage is packed in double layered, heat sealed bags, easy to use, feed and store.

Hard feed quantities can be reduced by up to a third depending on workload.

A bag of Eclipse haylage, if unopened, can keep for up to 18 months

Use within 5-7 days when opened.

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.

Feeding Guidelines:

• Each bag contains sufficient Eclipse Haylage to feed a 500Kg horse for 3 days in medium work.

• Eclipse Haylage use will result in reducing hard feed requirements.

• Use within 3-5 days of opening.

*Feeding guidelines are only suggestions and each horse/pony’s needs should be ascertained depending on its individual working circumstances. *Horses/ponies turned out into the paddock at grass during the day will require less Haylage depending on quantity and quality of grass available. 

Storage:

• Do not puncture.

• Store free from vermin, birds and pets with claws.

• Store in a cool place away from direct sunlight.
