Hay Hut Products
Protect Your Large Bale Hay Investment!
THE HAYHUT, the all weather enclosed horse hay feeder heralds a revolution in the feeding of hay to horses and in particular it capitalizes on the feeding of economical round rolls that are quickly replacing square bales as farmers struggle with production costs caused by lack of available labor. These labor shortages throughout the country are also forcing marked increases in the prices of conventional square bales! Additional information can be found at www.serwellfarms.com.
By enclosing the hay it is protected from inclement weather and the ravages of horses that, by nature, like to defecate on hay and use it as bedding. This wastage that can amount to in excess of one third of a round roll is almost totally eliminated by the Hayhut.
$1000.00 per month savings are reported by one horse breeding farm by the feeding of round rolls protected by Hayhuts.
The Hayhut can also be used for stacks of conventional square bales where significant labor savings are achieved by extending times between hay feedings.
WE ARE PROUD TO BE ABLE TO SAY - HAYHUTS ARE MADE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND BY YOUNG AMERICANS! OUR HARDWARE IS 'BAGGED' BY DEVELOPMENTALLY DISABLED AMERICANS!
In addition to the actual hay/cost savings, the use of large bale hay significantly reduces Labor costs and these Hayhuts help to minimize pasture stress in overstock situations and during poor forage growing conditions. It is interesting to note how well these units stop 'big bale bickering' and also how they bring a strong air of calmness and contentedness across the ranch as the horses all know that they have a constant source of forage. The Hayhut is a robust, durable, and UV stabilized hay feeder made of polyethylene and hence it cannot rust and does not require any maintenance unlike the majority of metal feeders.

The Hayhut is a full 84 inches in depth so that it can accommodate the largest of round rolls now being produced in the USA and up to twenty conventional square bales or the majority of big square bales. This additional depth also allows it to be easily pushed back over very large bales, even if they have been placed on a pallet, without catching the top lip of the feeder on the bale.
It is 84 inches high so that there is plenty of headroom for the use of a pallet while still allowing for good airflow and cooling over the top of the bale.
The Hayhut is delivered in halves to reduce shipping costs and a single half unit can be ordered. A half unit can be mounted against a wall or hard structure for use with conventional square bales. It can also be mounted against a fence with a locally purchased plywood back attached for weather protection. This half unit measures 42" x 72" x 84" and has four feeding windows.
The width of 72 inches allows up to three units (in six halves) to be transported easily in a standard bed pick-up truck.
The unit ships in two halves with simple build instructions and takes approximately 30 minutes to bolt together. They are very easy to move, manage, load and maintain. The Hayhut is supplied with all assembly hardware and a lifting eye for relocation purposes. It can also be relocated with a round roll by inserting the roll inside the unit.
Hayhuts are warranted for 1 year. They are designed and manufactured to accommodate all sizes of round rolls up to 1600 lbs. We have incorporated bigger windows for larger horses up to 17hh and anchor points for windy conditions.
