What material are the Gutzbusta® Hay Nets made from?
Our entire range of knotted 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 and the net itself does not take on the weight of the water.
What hole size will suit my horse or livestock?
Available in 3cm, 4cm, and 6cm (60ply) hole sizes, our huge range of Hay Nets suit a broad range of horses and livestock. There are many factors to consider. Weather, work load, body weight, health status (laminitis), type of hay (stalky/fine), palatability of the hay, and herd dynamics are just a few things to consider when purchasing a net. The individual personality of the animal can also dictate size. Some horses cannot cope with 3cm, while others have their owners asking for 2cm sized holes. If you are still not sure, 4cm is generally a good place to start. However, please contact us to discuss via phone or email is you really are not sure what is best for you individual animals.
Why use a GutzBusta®?
Our products are the most generous in size and designed to be easier to put on compared to other hay net brands available on the Australian market. We have been making hay nets for over 10 years and we know how the netting behaves over time. This is why we have developed a size and shape that works to enable these nets to last longer and remain easy to use throughout their life.

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.
