New owner to reintroduce products to market.

Farm & Stable has acquired Haygain, the hay steamer manufacturer that went into administration in January.

The new owner has secured ownership of the brand name and the business intellectual property rights.

The Farm & Stable group includes FS Animal Health which for ten years distributed Haygain products in Germany and England.

After the distribution arrangement ended in 2022, FS Animal Health launched its own hay steamer, the NUVEQ, last year.

Now the company says it plans to return Haygain products to the market alongside NUVEQ

Haygain is expected to be reintroduced towards the end of this year, with spare parts available for delivery shortly.

Farm & Stable and FS Animal Health say they have no plans to overhaul their trade/dealer structure, nor to disrupt NUVEQ sales, but to have “both brands coexist harmoniously.”

Haygain was founded in 2008 by the late Brian Fillery and his business partner Tim Oliver.

In 2015, Propress Equine became Haygain Ltd. And by 2016, the company had secured North American investment. Haygain also acquired the Comfortstall padded equine flooring system.

By the following year, the firm announced it had quadrupled its turnover and had distributors in 25 countries.
