Our bedding product is produced by grinding dry wood from old pallet wood and other wood waste. The wood is ground to a fine consistency by our RotoChopper wood processing machine, and any metal is extracted.
The finished product is very dry compared to industry standard. (Lab Tested at the UW Experimental farm to have a 12-14% moisture content), The bedding has a fine texture consistency that is very absorbent with less dust, and it tends to hold up longer in high moisture with out turning soggy as the traditional sawdust or shaving products do.
Hay Creek Companies supports the environment by manufacturing wood fuel pellets from waste wood. These wood fuel pellets are manufactured by compressing sawdust remnants from the lumber industry, furniture and flooring, and from forestry by-products as well as shredded wood from recycled pallets. The wood materials used to manufacture the pellets are only recycled wood products. Thus, burning these pellets is a carbon neutral process. All wood pellets manufactured at Hay Creek meet strict ash content, moisture content and heat output standards. We follow the guidelines for premium wood fuel pellets established by the Pellet Fuels Institute.
Hay Creek wood fuel pellets are supplied to our many retailers and can be purchased from dealers in our network.
We manufacture year round and offer an Early Buy Program for dealers each spring. The best dealer prices of the season are from April through July. Contact us to learn more about pre-buying for the season.
