{$pic}

Hello Bruno,

You asked for feedback about the straw pellets, now that we are using it for a while. I think it's a very pleasant stable bedding for the horse as well as for the owner or caretaker!

The horse have a comfortable bedding to stay and sleep on, it quickly absorbs most of the moist, urine and what surprises me is that it absorbs all of the ammoniac smell. 

This time of the year it is very humid in Switzerland and I noticed that the bedding is a little more moist. Therefore, I need to add more bags of new straw pellets to keep the stables comfortable and dry. 

Cleaning the stables it's less work and much easier than with straw or flax. In addition the amount of waste is amazingly little, so the dung hill doesn't grow very fast, which is a big advantage for us. Furthermore also the reduction of storage space is remarkable!

Kind regards,

Vera H.

Straw pellet has many advantages over straw or other bedding materials.

Scientists from the University of Gottingen have studied different bedding materials in several horse farms during 17.05.2009…29.04.2010.  The aim was to evaluate the different bedding materials, their properties and ease of use. The following table shows the survey results at a glance:

Unfortunately, no comparative studies have been done with peat. The reason may be that it is no longer recommended in Germany to use peat as litter for two main reasons:

1. Drain the peat swamps for which the environment is an irreversible process and violates the balance of nature. In addition to 10 cm thick peat layer recovery will take 100 years!
2. Peat causes significant problems to your horse's hooves due to acidic pH.
