Envirobed Livestock Bedding
It is consistently available all year round and is delivered on bulk loads or bags to your farm gate.
EnviroBed Livestock Bedding is 5 times more absorbent than sawdust and 10 times more absorbent than straw and this exceptional absorbency leads to each load lasting longer. It rapidly absorbs ammonia, urine and leaked milk which minimises seepage onto other beds and keeps udders clean for easier milking.
As well as being a useful cattle bedding, EnviroBed Livestock Bedding is also currently used as animal bedding for sheep and goats. It can be used as an under layer with a top surface of straw which wicks away the moisture from the top whilst keeping the surface dry and ammonia free.
Cow Comfort Pays Well
Cow comfort is not only morally sound and good for welfare, it is also profitable. Housing specialist Ivor Davey from Cow Plan Ltd says:
For each extra hour a cow spends lying down, she will produce 1.6 litres of milk
No extra feed is needed
Extra milk comes from energy saved by lying down rather than standing
So the right size and design of cubicles, with sound bases and decent bedding, that result in cows lying down for 12 hours instead of 10 can be expected to give 3.2 litres/day more milk.
EnviroBed Livestock Bedding is approved for use in organic systems by the Organic Farmers and Growers.
EnviroBed Livestock Bedding is currently available in the UK, Ireland and Europe in Bulk Loads or Bags.
