Advantages of Wood Fiber Bedding

Our Hay Creek Companies bedding product is produced by grinding dry wood from old pallet wood and other wood waste. It’s an environmentally friendly way of repurposing old pallets!

The wood is ground to a fine consistency by our RotoChopper wood processing machine, and any metal is extracted. But why is this bedding better than other wood shavings or sawdust?

According to the RotoChopper website, “A prevailing shortage of traditional agricultural residue animal bedding continues to drive the demand for bedding produced from wood waste. Plus, more farmers are realizing the advantages of wood fiber bedding over straw and other traditional bedding materials. For example, animal bedding produced with a wood grinder or hammermill does not compact and bind together as firmly as shavings or sawdust will. The rounded and frayed texture of ground wood fiber maintains air space to limit binding, while maximizing absorbency.”

This means your cattle with be drier than with other types of bedding. Wood compost animal bedding is growing in popularity! Ask us about how you can switch to our premium product for your cattle.
