Calculate Hay Savings


Hay Wastage

One of the most significant costs associated with horse care is the amount of hay wasted during feeding. Penn State researchers found in 2020 that automated feeders can reduce hay wastage by up to 50%. This means less money spent on purchasing additional hay and fewer resources wasted.


Annual Feeding Costs

Proper portion control is crucial when it comes to managing the feeding costs for your horses. Implementing an automated feeder like The HayBox can help save between 20% to 40% on annual feed costs, according to Elite Equestrian Magazine. By accurately measuring and dispensing portions, you can ensure your horses are receiving only what they need, avoiding unnecessary feed expenses.


How Often Horses Should Eat

Feeding your horse multiple times a day is recommended by Tribute Equine Nutrition for optimal health and performance. The absolute minimum is to feed your horse twice a day, evenly dividing their meals. However, the recommended feeding schedule for a horse would include meals three to five times a day. With The HayBox automatic horse feeder, you can make multiple daily feedings easier than ever.


Reduce Digestive Issues

Horse Journals reports that horses should receive frequent, small meals, as opposed to large meals fed less often. This is because feeding horses with an irregular eating pattern can lead to health issues such as colic, ulcers, and laminitis. Automated feeders, however, can help ensure a more regular eating pattern, resulting in a reduced risk of gastric ulcers. The HayBox can significantly contribute to reducing digestive issues in horses, which can be costly to treat.
