More Information about our GutzBusta® Hay Net Range 

As of August 2016, EVERY size of our hay nets had a revamp with draw string material used and more importantly, they all had a size increase. Our hay nets are now the most generous sized hay nets in Australia. They all have wide mouths that make filling much easier.  As we have been making them for over 6 years now, we know how they nets respond with 24/7 use and have made adjustments to make sure your hay nets are always easy to fill. 

  • They are made from UV stabilised, pre-stretched polyethylene netting.  They are tough and strong.  
  • Square mesh pattern which means that no matter how much or how little hay is inside the net, they are always easy to eat out of it, unlike diamond shaped holes that collapse down on themselves as the hay net empties. 
  • These nets have overlocked side stitching along the side seams to make them a tough and durable Hay Net.  All nets have been designed by us and we have worked out the best sizes to suit tough Australian conditions. We have been making these nets for over 6 years and thanks to customer feedback, we have developed a hay net superior to others available in Australia.  They are very generous in sizing with wide mouths to allow them to be easily filled
  • New 60ply available in 4cm and 6cm sizes (not available in 3cm).  60ply is a heavier duty netting material and is therefore stronger for those horses that are hard on things. Horses that paw a lot, pull at rugs, chew things, young horses or a few horses sharing the same net would all benefit from the 60ply. The 48ply has served both our own horses and many clients very well over the years, but some horses require a bit more strength in the 4cm.   
  • There are no metal joins of any sort on these nets, so nothing harmful for your horse to chew.  All nets come with a polyethylene draw string that is easy to tie and untie knots with. If a hole does start from getting caught on something, they are easily repaired, and all nets are supplied with a repair string (just like good quality jackets/jumpers come with a piece of extra thread). 
  • All products have undergone a revamp in that we have slightly increased the sizing on ALL of our Hay Nets.  This means all sizes, particularly the Medium and Large’s are very generous in their sizing, making them SUPER easy to fill.  Our larges are unique to all other slow feed hay nets in Australia in ease of use and design. 
  • Be very careful that you are comparing apples with apples when comparing different brands of slow feeders.  For example, one of our competitors large is only a fraction bigger than our small.   Another competitors mouth of their medium (half bale) is only as wide as our small.  This means frustration for you when trying to fill your hay net.  If the mouths (openings) of the nets are too small, they are much harder to use and fill. 

    We are also honest as to the what ply the hay nets are made from to make your comparisons easier.  The larger the ply and the smaller the holes, then the more costly the netting. Measurements are provided in each individual hay nets information page so you can make an informed decision. 

    Basically you need to use good common horse sense when using any hay net!   

    • Do not leave buckled halters or other type of buckled head gear on your horse when using ANY type of hay net as  your horse may get caught.  
    • If your horse is shod then simply tie your net up a little higher out of hoof range or put your net inside a box or other device such as a hay ring that stops their feet coming into contact with the hay net.   
    • Similarly, do not let horned animals such as cattle, sheep or goats eat from the hay nets as they may tear the netting or get entangled.   
    • If your horse or pony does have direct access to the hay net with it’s feet, then make sure it’s feet are larger than the holes of the hay net.

    Our 3cm Decelerator Hay Nets are available in:

    These smaller hole size hay nets are available in Small, Medium and Large and now, a ‘one size fits all’ round bale size.   This ‘one size fits all’ Round bale size will also fit the Large Export Square Bales too.  They have been made slightly larger to better facilitate filling and allowing more hay to be added.   The drawstring length has also been slightly increased to easily facilitate hanging from a tree or tying to a strong tie point. The Medium and Large are very generous in their sizing, making them super easy to fill.

    Because our hay nets are a square holed pattern and not diamond, it doesn’t matter if you have 1 biscuit of hay or the hay net is chock full of hay.  Either way your horse can eat out of the hay net as the holes don’t collapse down on each other like the diamond pattern hay nets do.

    This also makes them fantastically wonderful to use if you feed your horses chunks of hay from a round bale due to having no small bales or if you have the large square export bales and are dealing with the large biscuits of hay. Due to the mouth of this net opening up to a super wide width of over 1.3 meters, these nets are simply awesome to use when trying to fill a hay net from difficult sources.  Because our hay nets are a square design netting, the holes do not collapse down on each other, so whether you have 1 biscuit of hay or a full small bale, your horse can still eat from this net.  This GutzBusta Large size is a truly versatile size.

    Hints, Tips and Safety: If your horses are shod, then we recommend that you must use a hay ring/feeder or barrier of some sort around your round bale or large square bale and GutzBusta® Round Bale Net or you use some other construction that keeps your horses feet from getting involved with the hay net.  For the smaller nets then we recommend tying the hay net higher or putting the net in a large peach box or other barrier.   Not recommended for horned livestock. Remove all halters/headstalls from horses so there is nothing to get caught on if your horse loves rubbing its head on the bale (like one of ours does). 4cm GutzBusta® ‘Moderator’ Slow Feed Hay Nets

    The 6cm holes are not small enough to be considered a slow feed hay net.   For shod horses or horses and ponies or livestock with feet smaller than 6cm, we do not recommend this size netting, or you must use a hay ring or sufficient barrier between the hay net and the horses and livestock hooves. If concerned then we advise the use of a hay ring or some barrier between their feet and the netting and make sure you check your net daily.

    These ‘one size fits all’ GutzBusta Hay Nets are capable of fitting a 4×4, 5×4 and a 6×4 as well as a large export square bale.  All you have to do is fit the net, and if there is excess netting when using on smaller bales, then simply roll it up along one edge and tie off in a couple of places.

    Easy and versatile!!  We do send instructions with your order on what to do to convert this size net to a smaller net.

    At the moment we only have this one size of round bale available in 6cm x 6cm sized holes in 60ply polyethylene netting.  We will be in the future upgrading our product lines to give you a selection of smaller nets.

    Easier to put on than many competitors hay nets as we have been making these nets for nearly 7 years and know how the netting behaves over time.  We therefore have developed a size and pattern that works to enable these nets to last and REMAIN easy to fit in years to come.  Comes with a large drawstring to easily secure the hay net around your round bale.

    NB: If you run out of round bales, you can always use your round bale net to fill full of small bales to give your horses a bulk amount of hay still?

    • 6cm size holes – $147.50 for 60ply (GST inc) plus postage

    If your horses are shod, then we recommend that you must use a hay ring/feeder or barrier of some sort around your square bale and GutzBusta® Round Bale Net or you use some other construction that keeps your horses feet from getting involved with the hay net.  Not recommended for horned livestock. Remove all halters/headstalls from horses so there is nothing to get caught on if your horse loves rubbing its head and body on the bale (like one of ours does).

    We only have this one size of 6cm available at the moment, however in the future we will be having a range of smaller hay nets too.
