So why steam hay? 

Addressing the root cause of coughing in horses is significantly more effective than merely addressing the symptoms. Steaming is a beneficial method for alleviating coughing in horses. 

Allergenic bacteria, moulds, fungi, mite faeces, endotoxins, or beta-glucans can contribute to respiratory inflammation and conditions such as equine asthma (also known as COPD / COB) and recurrent airway obstruction (RAO). When hay is subjected to steaming, it effectively binds dust and almost eliminates all harmful bacteria and moulds. Steaming hay with a high-temperature hay steamer results in a reduction of respirable particles by more than 93%, while preserving the essential nutrients. 

  • What size hay steamer do I need? 

    • The Expert feeds up to 2 horses dependant on the horses size and holds approx 18 / 20kg of forage either in haynets or loose wedges. The Summit feeds 2+ horses (again dependant on their size) and holds up to 30 - 35kg of loose hay/haylage or a couple of small fully strung bales. Don't worry if you steam too much in one go, as it retains the benefits of quality steaming for 24 hours as long as it is kept dust free - just keep it inside the closed Nuveq.

  • What are the benefits of a Nuveq Hay Steamer? 

    • With our quick steam technology you will be steaming in just 5 minutes and with Nuveq you get 360 degree steaming, with no descaling either. Nuveq Hay Steamers are scientifically proven to reduce by more than 93% the dust, mould, bacteria and other allergens commonly found even in good quality hay. Steamed hay will; Have 3 times the water content of dry hay, Is so appetising it ensures horses get their nutrients, Helps horses with digestive issues such as colic and ulcers, Protects respiratory health, Great for horses with respiratory conditions.

  • I have a bin and a wallpaper stripper steamer - isn't this the same? 

    • In a word, no. If you warm but don't get to the critical temperatures needed to actually kill off moulds and bacteria, you are doing more harm than good, and possibly harming your horse’s health. A Nuveq unit has a thermally insulated hay chest and a powerful boiler unit which with it's 360 degrees steaming is vital for killing mould spores and bacteria in the hay. Swap now and you too will see how this is a purpose-built hay steamer which really does the job, and your horse will thank you for it too.

  • My Haygain boiler has failed / buzzes - what can I do? 

    • If you need a new steam generator for your Haygain chest, the Nuveq one is compatible, so we are able to supply those and a connector separately. The Nuveq boiler does not need regular descaling and starts to steam in just 5 minutes.
