ASCOTUK HS1 HAY
We are proud to announce Ascotuk.com has won an award for our Hay Steamers, Central England Prestige Awards 2020/2021 Winner for Horse Equipment Retailer of the Year.
The benefits of steaming hay are well documented and scientifically proven. Equines with COPD are the most obvious benefactors. The steaming process kills the fungal spores, hay mites and flushes out or damps down the dust particles which can be so problematic. Healthy horses can also benefit from this process in the following ways.
· Prevention of the onset of respiratory allergies.
· Reduction of aspirated dust partials, improving performance.
· Some horses can become very fussy with poor quality hay.
They can often resume normal eating habits and retain condition which is lost in the winter months. (This is due to the hay becoming a lot more palatable)
We have used food grade material in our steamers unlike others on the market, the reason for using Food Grade Materials is so that no chemicals leak out of the unit into the hay once the unit is heated up by the steam. The damaged that can be caused by using non-food grade material are certain types of Cancers, Lung disease just to name a few. It is the same as (Would you heat up your food in a Non-Food Grade Plastic -NO!) So why do the same to your horse, you steam your hay to help your horse and therefore it is important to use only products that are (manufactured to industrial specifications using only FOOD GRADE MATERIALS).
If your horse has a respiratory disorder feed as soon as the hay is cool (make sure to check the center of the hay is not too hot). This will ensure that the hay is still moist, and any dust particles will still be in suspension. They will not be aspirated. As the hay gets dryer some of these particles will come out of suspension.
The cost to run your steamer is between 10 pence and 15 pence per an hour, much cheaper than soaking hay.
