Our shredded wood bedding product is produced by grinding dry wood waste from old pallet wood and other wood waste we collect. The wood is ground to a fine consistency by our Rotochopper waste processing machine, which extracts all metal magnetically.
The finished product is a very dry (lab tested at the UW Experimental farm to have a 12-14% moisture content), fine texture consistency that is very absorbent with less dust. It tends to hold up longer in high moisture with out turning soggy as the traditional sawdust or shaving products do.
