BEDDING
Lumber Jack Kitty Litter
Wood pellet bedding for small animals, cats, reptiles, hamsters and all other
small animals using 100% Aspen is safe and the best pellets to use. The
pellets are sterile when manufactured, ammonia is a strong smelling
chemical produced in the feces and can reduce a animals ability to fight
infection if it is allowed to build up in unchanged bedding. Our Aspen pellet
contains no phenols and harmful chemicals as found in pine and cedar
materials.

Lumber Jack Poultry and Game Bedding
Wood Pellet bedding for:
Chickens, Ducks and other poultry
Pellets are 100% sterile and made from top-quality virgin wood fiber materials
with no additives of any kind, making them the perfect bedding material for
your flock.
Containing a lower moisture content than freshly cut timber, (typically <6%)
helps to greatly reduce the occurrence of molds, hock burn, spores and mites
resulting in a healthier and happier flock.
Benefits
•        You will notice a decrease in ammonia gas in your barn. The Aspen has
a natural ammonia absorber.
•        You will notice less capping when you use wood pellets as bedding, so
less topping-up and a reduced incidence of hock burn.
•        Birds will be warm, dry and more active.







Bedding Tips
The most important things to remember regarding your choice of bedding is
that it should be:-
Dust Free
Mold Free
Ammonia Free
Ammonia is a strong smelling chemical produced in the feces and can reduce
a bird`s ability to fight infection if it is allowed to build up in unchanged bedding.
By using the wood based product as bedding for poultry, ammonia levels in
the barn stay low or are absent for a complete production cycle. Thus,
blindness in poultry due to high levels of ammonia can be avoided. This
results in better mobility, and accordingly in better growth of poultry, compared
to conventional poultry bedding. Also, as ammonia is absorbed in the wood
based product, no nitrogen is released to the air.

The bedding formed from the wood based product is initially dry and stays dry
for a complete production cycle. The bedding absorbs all or almost all
moisture out of poultry waste. The dry bedding provides better feet quality and
less joint strain. Thus, poultry have better mobility and better feed/water
access, which increases growth rates. There is no moisture to attract flies.
Black wing beetles almost never infest the bedding. The dry environment
provides less stress on the respiratory system of the poultry. The bedding
stays soft and less abrasive on breasts of poultry because no or only a little
caking of the fibres occurs in the bedding. This lowers the likelihood of
infection from open wounds.
Wood Pellets Keep Your Horse dry and safe from
bacteria

Wood pellets are the most eco-friendly, efficient and comfortable way to
keep a horse warm and dry in its stable, as when soaked in water, wood
pellets create an absorbent, comfortable and firm bedding area. When
choosing bedding for your horse, it is important to take many factors into
consideration.

Urine absorption is crucial; one kilogram of wood pellets absorbs up to a
massive three kilograms of urine (which is more than the commonly used
straw), which means that labour costs and material costs are greatly
reduced. This factor goes hand in hand with the controlling of ammonia and
odours in the stable. Horse urine has a strong and distinctive smell, and
the more effectively the bedding can handle this, the happier both horse
and owner will be. Ammonia can be a serious risk to a horse’s health, and
the bacteria in the horse urine creates this, however wood pellets absorb
such a great amount of waste that the control of ammonia and odour is
naturally controlled alongside the absorption.

Wood pellets are the ideal horse bedding , not only for the horse but for the
owner, as wood pellets are simple to use and last for a long time. Once the
bedding has been watered, it should be placed in the stable via
wheelbarrow and scattered into the stable until a satisfactory level of
bedding has been reached. Cleaning out the stable has been made easier
by shovels which are designed to let dry pellets flake away while the soiled
ones can be picked up, another labour-reducing benefit of using wood
pellets. Once the soiled bedding has been cleared, fresh bedding can be
sprayed with water and added to the middle of the stable.

The fact that wood pellets are naturally free of preservatives and allergens
means there are no specific health risks to your horse by using them,
therefore pellets come with peace of mind. All of these positive factors
conclude that wood pellets are not only the most satisfactory solution for the
upkeep and well being of a horse, but greatly reduce labour costs, carbon
footprint and wellbeing worries for the owner.
