Haygain is excited to formalize its long-time partnership with grooms as an Official Partner of the British Grooms Association.
"As an equine health company, we appreciate the countless hours grooms spend caring for their horses behind the scenes, their keen ability to catch health and performance issues in their earliest and most treatable stages, and their dedication to providing care that prevents problems whenever possible," explains Edzo Wisman, Haygain CEO. Grooms were early Haygain adopters when the company introduced the patented technology of High Temperature Hay Steaming to the equestrian market in 2009. "Indeed, their support goes back to when some were asking: 'Steamed what...?' or 'Why cook hay...?'" Wisman recalls. "In those days it was the grooms who got it. As their horses' primary caregivers, grooms understood that even 'good' forage had 'bad' things in it and that Haygain Hay Steaming could help."
Those "bad" things are respirable particles found even in forage of top nutrient quality. These invisible, microscopic particles include mould, bacteria and other allergens. Along with stable bedding, they are among the biggest contributors to respiratory risks in the equine environment. Haygain High Temperature Steaming reduces up to 99% of these respirable irritants.
"We are now a thriving and fast-growing global equine health company with an expanded line of products," Wisman continues. "And it's still grooms who are often the first to recognize and recommend the benefits of Haygain Steamed Hay, The Forager Slow Feeder and ComfortStall Sealed Orthopaedic Flooring."
