High Fibre

Medium to low energy suitable for most

The bestselling Baillie Haylage High Fibre is our most popular variety.

This medium to low energy haylage is high in dry matter and fibre, but lower in sugar and energy (calories) compared to our Ryegrass and Ryegrass & Timothy varieties.

With more stem than our other lower energy forages (Traditional Parkland Meadow and Meadow Grass) the Baillie Haylage High Fibre is an excellent, all-round forage. Cut later in the season from second and third year leys, this late heading perennial ryegrass is a versatile forage suitable for most, including:

  • Horses and ponies at rest or in light to medium work
  • Competition horses, many of our professional customers like to feed Baillie Haylage High Fibre as a quality forage and supplement the energy requirements with hard feed.
  • Good doers
  • Broodmares
  • Native breeds
  • Some laminitics

It is essential that horses and ponies digest the appropriate amount of fibre according to their size, workload and living conditions to maintain good gut health. Feeding Baillie Haylage High Fibre is an excellent way to maintain a horses natural grazing behaviour by trickling fibre into a horse’s diet and can help to reduce the reliance on hard feed.

The quality is always fantastic.

I have used Baillie haylage for many years, specifically the High Fibre or Meadow Grass handy bales. We opt for a medium to low energy haylage as my 4* eventer is very highly strung, an extremely fussy eater and can struggle with the dust element of hay. The quality is always fantastic and never changeable from the first bale to the last. Kellypsa has never looked as well and held her weight as well as when she does on the High Fibre handy bales. As the energy level of the haylage never fluctuates, it also makes it much easier to carefully monitor energy levels through hard feed where required.

Marvellous Product!

We have three horses that we have had from youngsters and are now approaching their twenties. Now, finally, to everyone's relief, the temperature warms, the rain slows and the sun shines (a bit) and I would like to thank your team for Baillie Haylage High Fibre. I have used this haylage for my three hairy cobs, Billy, Ben and Connie, throughout the Winter. Billy has developed an unfortunate allergy to hay and pollen and he becomes quite ill if he eats a large amount of hay. Ben, on the other hand, will eat ANYTHING but puts on weight eating NOTHING. I searched for a product to suit them all, as they are all together, mostly out 24/7 and discovered Baillie Haylage High Fibre. This obviously suits Billy but also does not pile on the pounds for Ben. All three horses have done so well on this haylage and look great and are very happy. The haylage is consistently of excellent quality and it suits my ponies.

The horses love it.

We have used Baillie Haylage for many years. The horses love it and from our point of view it keeps them looking very well and mentally in good order. The haylage is always great consistent quality and the team at Baillie Haylage is always very helpful.

Bale Information & Storage Instructions

Due to the nature of the packaging all three bale sizes can be stored either indoors or outdoors, though we recommend storing haylage out of direct sunlight in the hot summer months. Bales must be kept free of damage and particular care must be taken to ensure accidental damage cannot be caused by birds, dogs, cats or other animals.

We do not recommend manual handling the medium and large bales and suggest leaving them on the pallets they are delivered on. The Medium and Large Bales are best opened by creating a flap in the plastic; to do this cut down the ether side and along the bottom of the end of a bale. Once the strings have been cut the bale will easily pull apart in slices and the flap will protect the haylage from the elements. The handy bales do not pull apart in slices, however, if you open a bale by slitting it down the long side then the haylage will pull apart easily.

    What is the best way to open a bale?

    Baillie Haylage Handy Bales do not pull apart in slices, however, if you open a bale by slitting it down the long side then the haylage will pull apart easily.

    Baillie Haylage Medium and Large Bales are best opened by creating a flap in the plastic; to do this cut down the ether side and along the bottom of the end of a bale. Once the strings have been cut the bale will easily pull apart in slices and the flap will protect the haylage from the elements.

    play

    Why has my handy bale expanded?

    In hot weather and when haylage is young handy bale bags may expand or ‘blow up’. This is very normal behaviour for the haylage and the bale will shrink back down as the weather cools without altering the quality of the product.

    If you prefer to ‘vent’ the gas from the bag rather than waiting for the bale to shrink back down then please contact us, so that we can advise you how to do this without damaging the bag.

    How do I store my haylage?

    All Baillie Haylage bales can be stored inside or outside, though we advise keeping them out of direct sunlight in the hot summer months. We do not recommend manoeuvring the medium and large bales and suggest they are left on the pallets they are delivered on.

    Bales must be kept free of damage; particular care must be taken to ensure accidental damaged cannot be caused by birds, rodents, dogs or cats.

    play

    Is Baillie Haylage suitable for laminitics?

    Baillie Haylage High Fibre, Traditional Parkland Meadow and Meadow Grass are suitable for some laminitics. All three varieties are medium to low energy and, therefore, have lower sugar and energy (calorie) content compared to the Ryegrass and Ryegrass & Timothy products. For further details, please view the Nutritional Information for the Baillie Haylage range.

    As with all horses and ponies prone to laminitis, we recommend following the advice of your vet, introducing any changes to their diet slowly and monitoring them closely.

    play

    What size are your bales?

    Baillie Haylage is available in three bale sizes:

    • The Large Bale is approximately 120cm long x 80cm wide x 70cm tall and typically feeds three horses for a week.
    • The Medium Bale is approximately 120cm long x 80cm wide x 50cm tall and typically feeds two horses for a week.
    • The Handy Bale is approximately 23cm deep x 38cm wide x 58cm tall and typically feeds one horse for two days.
    play

    Do all Baillie Haylage varieties include ryegrass?

    Each variety of Baillie Haylage contains some species of ryegrass, as do most grazing paddocks. These species along with the other grasses used in our haylage are specifically selected, grown and harvested to produce distinct varieties with different energy levels and nutritional benefits; meaning there is a Baillie Haylage product suitable for all horses and ponies.

    How do I go about changing from my current forage to a new one?

    If you are changing Baillie Haylage varieties, or from another forage to Baillie Haylage, we recommend introducing your horse or pony to the new forage slowly. This can be done by mixing the new forage with the old for a couple of days to allow your horse or pony to fully transition, without making sudden changes to their diet.

    play

    My haylage looks different to how it usually does, is this normal?

    Influences such as variable soil and weather conditions can cause some differences, for example colour and texture, across each of the Baillie Haylage varieties. To provide a product which is as consistent as possible, all Baillie Haylage products are batch coded to allow full traceability. This enables us to package the correct type of forage for horses and ponies’ different dietary requirements.

    If, however, your haylage does not look or smell as it usually does and this causes you concern then please contact Baillie Haylage if you bought it direct, or the stockist you purchased it from.

    play

    Once opened, how long does a bale of haylage last?

    Typically, Baillie Haylage medium and large bales last 5-7 days when open or up 10 days during winter, whereas handy bales will last 3-5 days. Due to the nature of the product, the haylage will last longer when opened in cooler weather than in warm weather.

    In the summer months, when the haylage is young and the weather is hot, it is not uncommon for your haylage to heat up. In such instances, we recommend removing the plastic and spreading the haylage out.
