Small Bale Haylage
West Lancs Haylage is produced from mature Rye Grasses ensuring it is a good source of fibre, vitamins, proteins and minerals.
This product can be suitable for riding and pony club horses, veterans, convalescing horses and those that are laminitic.
Our haylage is sold in sealed bags approximately 55l by volume, which is usually about 20kg. This means they can be easily handled and stored outdoors if necessary. They are also easily transported; several bales will fit in an average car without making a mess (unlike hay!)
For prices please view our stockists page and contact your nearest one.
