Large Round Bale Bag
Large Round Bale Bag
We've found that Handy Hay Nets slow feeder hay bags are the best quality out there.
Available in 1.0" and 1.5" netting sizes. 2" netting size is a special order. Please email us here.
Make sure to measure your bales before choosing a size! If your round bales are 4' x 4' or smaller you should buy the Small Round Bale Bag.
The Large Round Bale Bag will fit up to a 6'x6' foot bale, as well as smaller bales such as 5'x5' bales. This will not cause safety issues or impede your animal's ability to eat from the net. Note: If you need a size larger than 6'x6' please contact us.
Also works great for larger herds of other SMALL farm animals and will mean only refilling once a week, depending on the size of the herd.
Take control of your large round bales and save 94% of your hay out of every bale! **see loading instructions below**
GETTING THE HAY NET OVER YOUR BALES
(4X4 TO 6X7)
- Set the bale on its side, where you want to feed it. We recommend putting a few pallets on the ground for the bale/bag to sit on.
- Stretch out the net and the drawstring opening.
- Throw the net up on top of the bale, and bring down the sides.
- Roll the bale to get the bag over the whole bale.
- Then lift up the net in 1 area to cut the twine or mesh and remove (this way the hay is ‘in’ the net when the bale expands).
- Now pull the drawcord tight and tie it off. The excess cord needs to be stuck back into the net opening.
NOTE: Always use a poly, metal or wooden feeder if your horses are shod. If they paw at the bags they can get the heels of their shoes caught in the netting.
Handy Hay Nets Slow Feeder Hay Bags have their own guarantee and return policy. Please review theme HERE and contact them directly for returns or exchanges. You will need proof of purchase (your receipt) from us.
The tie string is very easy to untie in freezing weather on all Handy Hay Nets bags.
