Hay Pillow gives six reasons to feed from the ground in a natural grazing position

There are six reasons to feed from the ground in a natural grazing position, and Hay Pillow provides the means to do so.

H pillow 11-Less strain on the skeletal system and soft tissue because equines are designed to primarily eat with the head down.

2-Natural Wear of Teeth & More: A natural grazing position allows the mandible (jaw bone) to come down and forward in the atlantoaxial and temporomandibular joints. This enables the mandible to move up and down, side to side, forward and back without any restriction - facilitating natural wear of teeth along with optimum mastication and reduction of particle size.

Hpillow 23-Better Respiratory Health: Enables nasal passages to drain effectively thereby minimizing the inhalation of dust and particles.

4-Relaxed Mental & Emotional State: A horse’s emotional state is reflected in body position and posture. If we require a horse to eat with their head elevated, we are encouraging an alert and tense mental state.

5-Keeps Hay & Dust Out of Eyes: Eliminates the risk of hay and dust falling into your horse's eyes.

6-Unobstructed Peripheral Vision: The Standard Hay Pillows and Mini Hay Pillows® do not impair the horse's peripheral vision.

H Pillow 3If impaired, this can create tension psychologically.

Horses are prey animals and depend on sight and sound to detect predators.

Farmers Cooperative Association, Inc. – Celebrating 100 years of excellence in feed manufacturing and customer satisfaction

Taking a step back in history, customers asking for horse feeds may have been given a bag of oats, or even a bag of cattle feed.

co op 1This was not only acceptable, but the only solution.

For over 100 years, Farmers Cooperative Association, Inc. has kept abreast of advancements in nutrition and technology.

Our equine nutrition specialist works very closely with the most cutting-edge nutritional guidelines enabling FCA to offer a wide variety of horse feeds to meet the needs of athletic performance horses, mares and foals, senior horses, active trail horses, and “pasture ornaments”.

co op 2FCA is proud to use a “fixed formula” method of production.

Some large manufacturers use “least-cost” formulas which means the formula may change based on ingredient pricing.

Compare tags.

You will see specific ingredients listed on our tags, not vague terms like “plant protein products” or “grain by-products”, tell-tale signs of least-cost formulations.

co op 3We believe performance and consistency should prevail over profit, and we do not change formulas based on day-to-day ingredient pricing ensuring horses have consistent diets and nutrition.

FCA feeds are also fresh and made with minimal preservatives.

co op 4Our customers who check tags may find the feed they bought in the afternoon was made that very morning!

Horses aren’t the only ones benefiting from FCA’s cutting-edge, fresh, fixed-formula feeds.

Our customers are pleasantly surprised when comparing feed prices!

We believe what’s in the bag is more important than what’s on the bag and we use less expensive recyclable brown bags lined in plastic instead of “pretty” bags that just end up in the trash.

For more information on FCA feeds visit www.farmerscoop.com or contact FCA’s key account manager, Lisa Phillips for a discount on your first bag or to inquire about becoming a dealer.
