Slow feeders are designed to limit the rate at which a horse can consume hay, by only allowing them to remove one small mouthful of hay at a time from the feeder. Horses by nature are trickle feeders, designed to constantly consume small amounts of forage rather than ingest 2 or 3 large meals and spend long periods of time without food. The horse’s stomach is always producing acid, and if they don’t have access to forage all the time for the stomach to digest, health problems can result. Love spell.
From horses, ponies, donkeys, mules and miniatures, to llamas, goats and exotics, Natural Alternative Grazers makes a slow feeder N.A.G. Bag for every grazing animal. Veterinarians and equine health professionals, stable managers, equine teaching facilities and owners are all seeing the benefits of using a N.A.G. Bag slow feeding system.
Benefits of N.A.G. Bags:
- Stops hay wastage from trampling, manure etc.
- Slows down consumption so the hay last 2-3 times longer and replicates grazing.
- A full bale net gives your horse hay 24/7, saving you time on feeding.
- Hay in the gut 24/7 avoids gut ulcers and colic incidents
