GutzBusta® Knotless Hay Nets:
This super soft netting is made from 0.2in (5mm) thick and high strength PP (polypropylene) with a super-strong 240ply, the strongest on the Australian market.
Like our regular knotted nets, the knotless hay nets are available in small, medium, large as well as round bales and export bales. This means the new nets are still super easy to fill due to nice wide-open mouths.
This product can be thrown on the ground if your horse isn’t shod. It doesn’t have metal joints, too, so you don’t have to worry about your horses’ teeth or mouths getting injured.
Please note that the hay bale strings need to be cut and removed. Some of these photos are for illustration purposes and had not yet had their strings removed.
Which hay net hole size suits my horse or livestock best?
If you are unsure of what hay net hole size to choose, please click here to read our information page which discusses the sizing a little more to help you decide which hole size is the best choice for your horse or livestock. If you are still unsure, then please contact us as we are more than happy to discuss your individual animals' requirements and situation.
Both the knotless and knotted hay nets are made from our very own GutzBusta® sizes that we have developed over the years with feedback from our customers. They are superior in size, strength, and useability. Having a super wide mouth that makes them easy to fill is one of the greatest attributes of our nets.
It’s also important to note that you cannot compare the knotted nets to the knotless ones in terms of ply as they are made of entirely different materials. Ply refers to how many individual strands are in each section of the netting. The strength is in how strong those individual strands are, how tight they are, and what material they are made from. So you are comparing apples to oranges if you are comparing knotless to knotted in terms of ply.

Why are GutzBusta® Hay Nets so popular?
Our products are designed with large and strong drawstrings to secure the hay net around your round bale. It’s easier to put on compared to other hay nets available in the market. We’ve been making quality hay nets for over 12 years (since 2011) and we know how the netting behaves over time. This is why we developed a size and pattern that works to enable these nets to last longer.
A GutzBusta® Round Bale Hay Net decreases wastage by up to 46%.

It is not recommended to leave buckled halters or other types of buckled headgear on your horse when using ANY type of hay net as your horse may get caught. If your horse is shod then simply tie your net up a little higher. You can also put your net inside a box or other device that stops their feet from coming into contact with their hay net. Similarly, do not let horned animals such as sheep or goats, and cattle with ear tags eat from the hay nets as they may tear the netting, get entangled, or remove the ear tags.
