How to use wood pellets for equine bedding

We have put together a rough guide on how to use wood pellets for horse bedding.


Advantages and benefits of using wood pellets for horse bedding…

One of the major benefits of wood pellet bedding is a predicted 40-60% reduction in waste material (soiled bedding) that is generated.

A wood pellet bed is highly absorbent and soaks up urine rapidly, creating a confined wet spot which can be easily removed.

Additionally, wood pellets give enhanced compostability over traditional bedding which means that a higher proportion of manure to bedding can be removed from the loose box to go to the compost heap. Environmentally, this can be seen as a positive step in reducing the volume of waste material produced.

Manure can be sifted out easily from the bedding so the time taken to clean the loose box is greatly reduced due to the fact you are not removing good bedding with the soiled bedding. This in turn leads to savings in material costs.
