Anyone who regularly makes grass hay will find 
haylage making much easier as well. And it is 
perfect for endurance horses as it has a 
relatively high moisture content, virtually no 
respiratory allergens and provides a bit 
more energy than regular dry grass hay (rye). 
Very popular over here and people pay through the 
nose for it (equiv. 10 dollars per bale, a bale 
lasts approx 3 days depending on the 
horse/level of work and availability of fresh 

It might not work out in the hotter states, but 
still.....I can't believe nobody is making it 
over there?
