When introducing slow hay feeding always provide loose hay along with the NAG Bag for the first week. This assists your animal in learning how to "graze" from the nets properly, prolonging the life of your NAG Bag. Remember - slow feeding is only as good as the hay being fed. Meeting the animal's needs is very important, and making sure that you have the correct hay type will help to ensure successful net feeding. Visit our hay testing and articles pages to learn more.
