Crushed Husks

  • Crushed husks are created from the oat milling process which produces a light, bulky, dry and absorbent bedding product.
  • 6% – 8% moisture content resulting in 20% more efficiency than sawdust.
  • Husks can be used in either bedding or feed, with a high fibre feed value.
  • This bedding can only be supplied in Artic Walking Floors.
  • Husks are a non-abrasive, less dusty alternative to sawdust.


  • Miscanthus, also know as ‘Elephant Grass’ is the modern alternative to straw and wood shavings.
  • The miscanthus plant has a spongy inner core, which makes it highly absorbent, biodegradable and hygienic in comparison with other materials.
  • It is an extremely warm, fibrous, light and fluffy bedding material.
  • Natural biodegradable properties provides mineral nutrients for the soil. Unlike other mulches, the neutral pH does not acidify the soil.

Paper Gypsum

  • Paper gypsum is produced from recycled plasterboard.
  • The paper is mechanically removed from the plasterboard making it safe for use with livestock.
  • Benefits include a low cost material with high absorbency.
  • Reduces odours, ammonia, foot and hoof problems and the incidence of dermatitis and mastitis.

Husk and Gypsum

  • Some customers have trouble with the gypsum sticking to the cubicles.
  • By adding the husk it keeps the gypsum moving off the bed but retains all the benefits of the gypsum.
