SMALLER IS BIGGER
Don't be fooled by Break-A-Bale's compact size. One package of Break-A-Bale compressed hay (35 oz) takes up to half as much space as competing loose hays; meaning less space taken on your pantry shelves. This also allows us to ship more hay per shipment, thus reducing CO2 emissions.
PRE-CUT MEANS LESS MESS
When using Sunburst Break-A-Bale hays, serving is made more enjoyable than ever! Each Break-A-Bale is already cut into 4 easy to serve portions, just like sliced bread. This makes feeding your critter, cleaner and easier so you can get back to doing the things that really matter, like watching your pet devour their Break-A-Bale hay!
When the hay is compressed, it reduces the interior’s exposure to oxygen and UV light. This promotes fresher, better tasting hay for your pet by slowing the oxidation process considerably. Add this to the fact that we only use the finest North American, sun-cured hays and it’s easy to see why Sunburst Break-A-Bale hays are the clear choice for you and your pet.
How Many Pre-Cut Feeding Bales (portions) are in a Package?
Sunburst Break-A-Bale Compressed Hays contains 4 feeding portions for a total package weight of 35 ounces (1 kg).
Do I Need to Cut/Tear Apart the Pre-Cut Feeding Bale Before Giving it to My Pet?
Nope. Each package contains four, pre-cut feeding bales that are ready-to-feed for your pet’s enjoyment. Just cut through the package plastic as directed, remove a pre-cut feeding bale and place it in your pet’s cage. It’s that easy and less messy than loose hays!
What Types of Sunburst Break-A-Bale Are Available?
Currently, we have Timothy Hay & Orchard Grass available.
What Does “Compressed Hay” Mean?
Compression technology allows us to reduce the size of the hay package by pressing the hay together and having less oxygen flowing within the package (less oxidation) compared to loose hays. It’s the same type of process used with the big bales you see at the feed stores. This process allows the hay to expand up to 8 times its original size when removed from packaging, so don’t be fooled by the package size. It also provides a wonderful foraging activity for your herbivore.
Where Are Sunburst Break-A-Bale Hays Sourced From?
Our Timothy Hay and Orchard Grass are North American, from the pristine and green prairies of Western Canada. Sunburst Break-A-Bale hays are all natural, sun-cured, hand selected and harvested without the use of pesticides.
How Long Will One, Pre-Cut Feeding Portion Feed My Pet?
Every herbivore is different. On average, each pre-cut bale (portion) can last between two to three days per pet. Remember, because of its unique compressed form, your pet will forage and be entertained with Break-A-Bale, unlike loose hays.
What Are The Benefits Of Compressed Hay Compared To Loose Hay?
The compression process actually results in less mess and dust associated with handling loose hays. Compressed hays also encourage foraging, which promotes better dental health, overall well-being and a healthier digestive system.
