Hay Preservative – Hay Fresh

Keep hay fresher by preventing mold!

Liquid Hay Preservative Treatment is used to decrease dust and help maintain the color and fresh smell of hay. Preventing mold growth allows for safe baling at a higher moisture content, keeping more leaf in the bale and maintaining higher feeding value. Propionic acid is widely accepted as an effective mold-inhibitor for forage, and is effective against toxin-producing Aspergillus mold. AgroChem HayFresh Hay Preservative is a proprietary blend of propionic acid and other organic acids with a safe surfactant that prevents liquid beading to ensure proper coverage. Empty totes do not need to be returned.

BUFFERED PROPIONIC ACID: Not all hay preservatives are created equal. With an active concentration of 68% buffered propionic acid, our preservatives provide amongst the highest propionic acid levels on the market. Propionic acid is unrivaled in its ability to inhibit mold growth in hay and feed.

ACETIC ACID: In addition to propionic acid, Hay Fresh Plus contains acetic acid, which is commonly used in food preservation. While propionic acid is highly effective at controlling mold growth, acetic acid is more effective against bacterial growth.

CITRIC ACID: HayFresh and HayFresh Plus contain a unique blend of citric acid. This natural organic acid is a common food preservative that helps to maintain the natural green color and fresh smell of bailed hay.
