All our Fibre Select hay is delivered to you in a new innovative way to provide high quality hay in convenient fully packaged bales, our unique packaging system produces bales that are split into easy to feed portions whilst maintaining full fibre length. Would your horse benefit from being fed the correct amount of forage everyday, every feed? Would you benefit from knowing how much long fibre hay you are giving your horse every day, every feed? Fibre Select will give you this control.
WHY FIBRE SELECT
Feeding correct amounts of long fibre forage is the natural way to promote a healthy digestive system for your horse and helps to reduce the risk of gastric ulcers, colic and other related problems whilst generally supporting good health and Performance.
To meet the demands of a number of our clients and from investigation of the wider equine market Ransley Hay have recently launched a new innovative way to provide high quality hay in convenient fully packaged bales called the Fibre Select range, our unique packaging system produces bales that are split into easy to feed portions whilst maintaining full fibre length.
Fibre Select is a comprehensive range of dust reduced, clean, high quality products that are either made from a single selection or a blend, in some cases to your personal requirements, delivering a consistent and reliable source of forage with the added benefits of easy to feed, easy to handle and easy to store.
These packaged bales maintain the colour and smell of the products generally extending shelf life of the hay whilst also dramatically reducing the cross contamination from airborne fungal, spores, mycotoxins and aspergilles etc, with an ability to vary both blends and portion size to suit your specific needs
However delivering the correct amount of long fibre in a uniform and consistent fashion is a challenge most horse owners work very hard to control a manage. With this specific need in mind and also a number of other challenges faced in most yards today such as providing enough adequately protected and dry storage space to prevent any contamination or reduced costs thru less wastage to providing bales in manageable sizes and weights fibre select ticks the box.
FIBRE SELECT RYEGRASS
This product is selected from 1st or 2nd cut Ryegrass or possibly a blend of both to ensure consistency and reliability. Having been dust extracted as part of the Fibre Select process this is a clean and nutritious Hay and acts as a good source of both fibre and protein making it an ideal choice for animals both in and out of work.
FIBRE SELECT RYEGRASS / TIMOTHY BLEND
This Hay is a blend of 1st cut Ryegrass and 1st cut Timothy Hay creating a coarser but very palatable Hay with well-balanced levels of fibre, protein and energy making an ideal Hay for competition horses. This Hay has good colour and smell and as with all of the other products in the Fibre Select range it has been dust extracted to create a high quality, clean source of fibre.
FIBRE SELECT SOFT AND SWEET
This Hay is produced from sweet, green Meadow Hay generally selected from our producers in Kent, the Garden of England.

The two products combined create a unique product, very clean in appearance with high palatability and great smell.
