Haylage is a specially prepared forage with a high dry matter content of over 40%, making it a preferred choice for horses as well as various farm livestock. Its production focuses on achieving a minimal dry matter content to ensure a lower reliance on fermentation for preservation, thus minimising the risk of Clostridia contamination.
Paper discussing the value of EquiNectar to a starch fed horse in training by independent equine nutritionist, Catherine Rudenko. Discusses the impact of starch feeding, optimal starch levels in feed and the method of action of EquiNectar. The use of active enzymes in a horse’s diet have been shown to have an impact on caecal
The Effect of Feeding Horses a High Fiber Diet With or Without Exogenous Fibrolytic Enzymes Supplementation on Nutrient Digestion, Blood Chemistry, Fecal Coliform Count, and In Vitro Fecal Fermentation
A study exploring the use of exogenous enzymes and their effects on digestion, blood chemistry, fecal coliform count and in vitro fecal fermentation. Results demonstrate that xylanase, cellulase or a mix of xylanase and cellulase, have an impact on digestion and the hindgut microbiome.

Equine Veterinary Journal – Characterisation of the faecal metabolome and microbiome of Thoroughbred racehorses
We conducted this study with Dr Chris Proudman of the University of Surrey Veterinary School, to investigate the effect of EquiNectar on the metabolome and microbiome of racehorses. We discovered that EquiNectar had significant impacts.
Our co-founder, Professor John Hunter, wrote this paper for the Equine Veterinary Journal to discuss Irritable Bowel Syndrome in horses. Following this paper, EquiNectar was developed.
