Why use GutzBusta®?

Our new design means they are larger and easier to put on and will fully encapsulate the bale if you want it to. Once you know the size of the hay net you need, you can then choose the hole size. 

Our 3cm hay nets are now 60ply - the strongest available on the Australian market. Due to the increased thickness of this netting and therefore more material per square meter, this netting costs us more to produce and hence they are a little more expensive.

What material are the Gutzbusta® Hay Nets made from?

Our GutzBusta® Slow Feed Hay Nets are made from tough and durable, UV Stabilized, and heat-treated netting in 60ply polyethylene netting. This netting will not absorb water, therefore there is no change to the properties of the netting during inclement weather or if used to soak hay. 

What hole size will suit my horse or livestock?

Available in 3cm, 4cm, and 6cm (60ply), our Slow Feed Hay Nets are made from tough, durable, UV Stabilized, and heat-treated 60ply polyethylene netting. This netting is not water absorbent, so you don’t have to worry about your net getting heavy when soaked in water. 

3cm hole size 

This size is great for gutsy eaters, ponies, laminitic horses, or if your hay is really palatable and you want to slow consumption even more. We recommend this for horses and ponies that have tried slow feed hay nets before. While some horses may be frustrated by this size, others accept it without hesitation. 

Despite no top teeth, we also have customers whose cattle can still eat from this size with palatable hay. Available in strong and durable 60ply. 60ply is not offered by any other slow feed business in Australia in 3cm sized holes.

4cm hole size 

Our most popular hole size. 95% of horses have no trouble accepting this hole size. It's also perfect for cattle, sheep, goats, donkeys, and alpacas, too. Available in 60ply and 48ply. 

6cm hole size

Works well for broodmares, old horses or any horse, cow, sheep, alpaca, or goat that you aren't trying to restrict hay consumption with, but still want to reduce hay wastage. You can also use less palatable, coarse, or stalky hay with this size. Available in 60ply.

Note: Please make sure that the hoof size is greater than the hole size if you are allowing hoof access to this net. Hanging the net higher or putting a hay ring or physical barrier is also recommended.

Why use GutzBusta®?

GutzBusta® Round Bale Hay Net decreases wastage for up to 46%.  A 4x4 round bale can last 3 to 4 horses for 7 to 15 days with a 4cm net, depending on how cold the weather is.  

We also tested our hay net during the spring season. A 4x4 round bale can be used for up to 3 months for two horses as it wasn't overly palatable.

Our products are designed with large drawstrings to secure the hay net around your round bale. It’s easier to put on compared to other hay nets available in the market. We’ve been making slow feeders hay nets for over 8 years and we know how the netting behaves over time. This is why we developed a size and pattern that works to enable these nets to last longer.

Caution:

It is not recommended to leave buckled halters or other types of buckled headgear on your horse when using ANY type of hay net as your horse may get caught. If your horse is shod then simply tie your net up a little higher. You can also put your net inside a box or other device that stops their feet from coming into contact with their hay net. Similarly, do not let horned animals such as sheep or goats, and cattle with ear tags eat from the hay nets as they may tear the netting, get entangled, or remove the ear tags.
