Straw pellet has many advantages over straw or other bedding materials

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.
