Canadian Hay

Canada HayEuroBale is pleased to announce that it is now in a position to supply quality North American hay at a competitive price. The difficulties of making high quality hay in England on a regular and consistent basis are well known. Eurobale has now set up a trading venture with one of the largest hay producers and growers in Alberta, Canada to bring to the UK at a competitive price their high quality products. They currently trade over 100,000 tons a year, giving EuroBale a large choice of quality and variety to match a customers needs.

The hay will be delivered using our usual ride on forklift system and is available throughout the year. Samples are available on request and EuroBale would be pleased to answer any questions you may have regarding this or any of our other products.

EuroBale Forage, Haylage

eurobale-haylageHaylage is a semi wilted mildly fermented forage. The process involved, results in better bioavailability and utilisation of energy and protein as well as the respiratory benefits associated with feeding a forage with a negligible spore count.

Haylage Bale Size

In 2011 we adopted a new bale size with new bales  approx 45% greater in volume than the old size. The reason for the change was driven by several factors not least the fact that our usual size baler is no longer available to buy. Other factors include;

  • A more efficient size bale to wrap therefore reducing plastic usage.
  • Greater weight per pallet making a more efficient package to transport.
  • Easier separation of flakes due to pre-chamber on the baler.
  • Larger field capacity increasing the ability to harvest more product on a given day in the optimum conditions.


  • Width      80cm
  • Lenghth   120cm
  • Height      70cm
  • Weight     225/250kgs(approx)
  • On Pallet 6 bales

The bales are palletized with 6 bales on a pallet. The greater efficiencies involved in moving to this size of bale will help to keep price increases to a minimum.

Each bale is individually wrapped and then the whole pallet is capped and wrapped again which means the whole delivery can be stored outside in all weathers thereby freeing up indoor storage.


Eurobale is pleased to launch, after extensive trialling last year, its new Multipack system. Multipack is made from the same grasses as standard Eurobale product, but is packaged in a totally innovative way.

There are five main types of EuroBale:

  • GOLD is made from first cut, first year seeds rye grasses
  • SILVER is made from first cut but usually from grasses in their second or third harvest year
  • TIMOTHY is a traditional long coarse grass, known for its palatability and distinctive 'nose'
  • COUNTRY MIX is a mixture of Rye grass and Timothy. It is a very palatable coarse mix that is favoured by some studs and trainers
  • Rye is the more economically priced EuroBale and is particularly suitable for riding schools, livery yards and light competition yards

Eurobale Multipack

Multipack is made from exactly the same grasses and mixes as the normal EuroBale product range. The key difference is the individual bale size used.

The standard size EuroBale bale weighs between but an individual Multipack bale is only 35-40kg, making the handling and distribution of individual bales so much easier.

EuroBale Multipack is made using a conventional small baler to achieve the bale size. These are then collected by a special piece of packaging equipment, which compresses the bales in bundles of ten.

Each pack of ten is wrapped with plastic film and two of these mini stacks are placed on a pallet. The end result is the same size as a standard EuroBale pallet.

Multipack - Is it For Me?

If the haylage is stored some distance from the stables, it is easy to put individual bales onto trolleys to transport to the feed areas.

It is useful in running a livery yard where it is important to know each individual's haylage consumption. One person can also buy individual bales from a pack, which is shared by numerous users.

This will help transparency of consumption. Stops individuals from buying quantities too large resulting in the bales degrading before being consumed.

How many horses do I need?

Once a Multipack has been opened the ten bales inside need using within 3-5 days, depending on weather conditions. It is advised that a minimum of five horses would be required to use a pack in this time scale.
