Murdock, NE, July, 2 2013 – Oxbow Animal Health, a leader in premium nutrition for small exotic animals worldwide, is proud to introduce Harvest Stacks - an innovative new option when it comes to feeding hay.  Oxbow Harvest Stacks utilize special compression technology to transform all-natural, hand-sorted Western Timothy hay into compact, convenient-to-feed portions which produce 80% less airborne dust and take up 75% less space than loose hay.  Harvest Stacks can be fed as a primary hay source or supplemented with loose hay to encourage enrichment.  Harvest Stacks come in three varieties: Western Timothy, Western Timothy with Carrots, and Western Timothy with Chamomile.  

Unique qualities of Harvest Stacks include:

  • 80% less airborne dust particles than leading brands of loose hay
  • Takes up 75% less shelf space than loose hay
  • Contains no binders
  • 100% hand selected and sorted hay  
  • Unique shape and texture encourage enrichment through increased pet/product interaction

“At Oxbow, we recognize that feeding and storing loose hay can be a challenge for some individuals, such as those with sensitivity to dust and anyone with storage space limitations, whether at home or while traveling,” said Melissa Ross, Marketing Operations Manager at Oxbow.  “Because fiber is so vital to the health of small herbivores, we are committed to making the process of feeding hay easy and enjoyable for pet owners and pets alike.  Harvest Stacks produce less dust and take up 75% less shelf space than loose hay – a win/win for both retailers and pet owners.”
