Don't waste your hay, order a GutzBusta® today!
Black in colour.
The Large GutzBusta® nets will take an entire small square bale of hay. They are fantastic to use if going away for a few nights to know that your horse or pony will have something to nibble on the entire time. Great if you are having someone else look after your horses to make it less time consuming to feed. Our Larges are SUPER easy to fill and simply AWESOME to use with small bales of hay.
They are also great in reducing feed time by allowing you to put larger quantities of hay out at a time as one bale may last a few days. Rather than feeding hay multiple times per day, using a Large GutzBusta® may allow you to feed hay only every 2 days for example.
Reduce the incidence of colic, choke, stomach ulcers, boredom, hay wastage, stable vices but simulate grazing.
How do I decide what hole size will suit my horse or livestock?Available in 3cm, 4cm & 6cm (60ply). Now our entire 3cm range is available in 60ply. 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. Our GutzBusta's don't get heavy when used to soak hay.
Please note 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 metre, this netting costs us a lot more and hence we have had to unfortunately raise our prices.

3cm - Great for really Gutzy eaters. Ponies, laminitic horses or if your hay is REALLY palatable and you want to slow consumption even more. Recommended for horses and ponies that have tried slow feed hay nets before as some horses may be frustrated by this size, others accept it without hesitation. Despite no top teeth, we have customers whose cattle can still eat from this size net with palatable hay. Available in strong and durable 60ply. 60ply not offered by any other slow feed business in Australia in 3cm sized holes. As this material costs more, we have unfortunately had to increase our prices for our 3cm 60ply range.
4cm - Our most popular hole size. Great to slow down feeding and save on hay wastage plus many other health benefits. Available in 60ply. Good general purpose hole size, 95% of horses have no trouble accepting this size net hole. Good size for cattle, sheep, goats, donkeys and alpacas too. Common size for sheep, goats, cattle, dinkeys and alpaca's if you are wanting to slow feeding a little.
6cm - Great for brood mares, old horses or any horse, cow, sheep, alpaca or goat that you aren't trying to restrict hay consumption with but still stop hay wastage. Please note to make sure the hoof size is greater than the hole size if you are allowing hoof access to this net. A hay ring or physical barrier is recommended, or hang the net higher if this is a concern. Also great for less palatable hay, coarse or stalky hay. Available in 60ply.
Why use a GutzBusta for your horse or livestock?
Now SUPER EASY to fill. Unique design to Australia. These Large nets now open right up and you fill from the long side of your bale, instead of trying to pull your hay net down the entire length of the bale which is time consuming and often difficult, particularly if your hay is stalky. Simply place your square bale the ground, open up your hay net and place over the long side of the bale, pull the netting down towards the ground, then flip over the bale 180 degrees, pull the excess netting up around the sides to bring edges together and then pull your drawstring and your Large Hay Net is filled in about 10 seconds.
