Haygain HG 2002
Haygain HG 2002
The HG 2002 incorporates Haygain's patented steam distribution manifold spike system. This enables steam to penetrate the forage from the inside outwards at temperatures in excess of 100ºC / 212ºF, to eliminate respirable dust and kill mould, fungi, spores and bacteria.
The thermally efficient steam chest maintains the steam volume and high temperature to ensure that the respirable particles, fungal spores, bacteria and mites in the forage are eliminated. This ensures the forage is cleaner, more palatable and maintains its nutritional value.

The HG 2002 consists of a steam generator and an insulated, wheeled chest for ease of movement. It allows you to steam up to 50kg of compressed bale or up to 45kg of haylage. The hay chest allows very high temperatures to be reached (in excess of 100°C / 212ºF) which is critical to kill harmful mould spores and bacteria in hay. The HG 2002 steams forage in 60 minutes using its 2 x 2.9kW steam generators each with a water capacity of 8 litres, which is sufficient for two consecutive steaming cycles.
These steam generators feature a stainless steel boiler shell with a domed lid for optimum steam flow and consistent delivery, a robust heating element and offers safety thermal protection with a “run dry” alarm and warning light. The balanced integrated handle allows for easy rinsing of the unit while the location of the filler spout, with its brass safety release filler cap, prevents overfilling.
- Double-skinned and thermally insulated to reach and maintain the critically high temperatures required
- All fittings and fastenings are either brass or stainless steel, so will not corrode
- Patent title: Apparatus for and Method of Steam Treating of Fodder (Official No 2454969 and 2477874)
- Made in the United Kingdom
*The number of horses the HG 2002 feeds is an approximate guide only based on portion size, compaction of hay, size of bale and number of steam cycles per day.
