N.A.G. (Natural Alternative Grazers) Bags

 ON-LINE STORE NOW AVAILABLE

Veterinarians, Trainers, Nutritionists, Equine Colleges, professional and non-professional horse caregivers are now realizing the health benefits associated with the use of N.A.G. Bags Slow Feeder Hay Nets for all grazing animals.

WARNING – no horned or haltered animals should use N.A.G. Bags.

N.A.G. Bags are made with netting that is custom-produced in Canada to meet Canada’s strict standards. The netting is developed with your horse’s safety as the first priority; knot-less and seamless. The net is 1/4 inch wide to avoid tooth and lip damage and to provide the optimal size for hay net grazing. There are no knots (bent fibre strands) to weaken the netting, and no stitched or sewn seams to work loose and become a hazard. There is no excess hardware to fail and the closing cords are chosen to be the safest on the market. Unlike white or black netting, N.A.G. Bags netting is green and UV treated to high Canadian standards.

N.A.G. Bags are not just for horses. Llamas, sheep, goats, miniatures, cattle and exotics do very well with slow feeders.

N.A.G. Bags help to:

  • Slow down digestion/consumption
  • Significantly reduce bronchial & inhalant allergies
  • Mimic grazing action
  • Keep insulin levels even
  • Discourage cribbing
  • Reduce wasted feed
  • Prevent ulcers and colic by providing steady, even source of feed
  • Encourage obese horses to lose weight and thin horses to gain weight
  • Save hours of labor on feeding
  • Ensure horses are never without fiber intake
  • Keep horses fed and ready to ride or work ( as there are no set feeding times)
  • Eliminate rushing home to feed

 

Picture
You now have the option to get any of our bags with a ring or clip attached to it. And in January you will be able to buy the hardware separately if needing extra.
This allows for easy hanging (rather than tying them) or attaching it into tubs, and for stables to clip them easily into the stall.

 Simply choose the option you want in the products below.

Equine Nutritional Books

Purchase now at slowfeeder.com!

Feed Your Horse Like A Horse

A reference book equally valuable for the equine science student, the large-scale breeder, the frequent competitor, and the recreational horseman (and anyone else with a horse’s well-being at heart).
What to feed, how to feed, and when — conventional wisdom used to dictate the answer: Toss out a flake of “good quality” hay and hope for the best.

These days, though, advances in nutritional research, evolving horse-keeping practices, disappearing pasture land, and increasingly sophisticated veterinary knowledge make the horse owner’s feed decisions highly complex. For some it can be daunting, but for equine nutritionist Juliet M. Getty, Ph.D., the changing horse-scape creates an exciting opportunity to optimize the nutritional profile of every horse.

Dr. Getty’s goal in writing this book is to help horse owners like you decide the best feeding method for your horse. She makes recommendations on what to feed, but also wants you to know why a specific feedstuff or nutrient is important.

Feed Your Horse Like A Horse is one reference book you’ll reach for again and again.

Easy Keeper: Making it Easy to Keep Him Healthy

Equine obesity is a difficult yet highly common issue all over the world, and in the Easy Keeper teleseminar transcribed here, we look at the causes, prevention and solutions. Research on equine obesity started with studies on human obesity, looking at elements like hormonal responses and effect of exercise. Then the research moved to horses, and lo and behold, found that the drivers of weight issues for people are, for the most part, the same as for horses. The Easy Keeper offers four keys to successful equine weight management that not only work, but bring benefits far beyond reducing a horse’s girth.

Equine Digestion – It’s Decidedly Different

So many aspects of horse health depend on the horse’s “person” understanding the reasons that compel the horse’s natural diet and eating habits, and many complex health problems can be prevented or alleviated through a deeper understanding of how horses are made on the inside.

The information presented here will empower you to make the right choices for our horse so you won’t need to rely on your neighbor, or your feed store clerk, or “conventional wisdom,” or even traditional practices for such vital decision-making. You will know the right way to feed and you’ll be able to talk knowledgeably to those involved with your horse’s care.

Equine Cushing’s Disease – Nutritional Management

Equine Cushing’s disease is an incurable disorder common in older horses. The symptoms come on gradually, but can be devastating to a horse’s quality of life. It is a progressive disorder that can lead to fatal infections, colic, muscle wasting, and laminitis. The good news, though, is that nutritional management can slow the disease progression and greatly improve the quality of life for the horse with Cushing’s disease.

In this volume of her Spotlight on Equine Nutrition Series, Dr. Juliet M. Getty explains the science of the disease mechanism, discusses common veterinary options, and offers valuable advice on appropriate nutritional intervention, a key component in the treatment of equine Cushing’s disease. Her answers to questions from owners of horses with Cushing’s will be of help to many who struggle to better the lives of their suffering horses.

Joint Health – A Nutritional Perspective

Joints, like all tissues in the body, rely on nutrients for maintenance and repair. The horse’s body prioritizes its use of nutrients, first supporting vital organs – heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, and brain — then giving what nutrients are left over to the rest of the anatomy. It is vitally important that the horse’s diet include sufficient nutrients t make it all the way to the organs at the end of the body’s hierarchy, the joints. Supplementing for joint health without first establishing a nutritional foundation is a waste of effort and money.

Whole Foods & Alternative Feeds
