STRAWMAX PRESENTS A HEALTHY, HYGIENIC AND COST-EFECTIVE NEW BEDDING
STRAWMAX is a 100% natural and sustainable straw pellet bedding. It’s been developed to combine and maximise the benefits of both straw and pellets.
STRAWMAX is made at a dedicated production facility from high-quality, fully-traceable wheat straw. It’s chopped, dried at sterilising temperatures, dust extracted and pelletised to create a consistent, top quality bedding available in 15kg bags.
STRAWMAX creates a healthy, hygienic stable environment for horses. It’s soft and breaks down easily. When watered, the pellets fluff up to provide a deep, supportive bed with virtually no airborne dust. STRAWMAX offers exceptional moisture absorbency and highly effective odour suppression.
Users say STRAWMAX beds are easy to make and manage. Mucking out is swift and simple, with minimal amounts of bedding consigned to the muck heap.
This innovative, eco-friendly, cost-effective equine bedding - designed to keep stabled horses healthy – is available to retail outlets on pallets of 65 bags.
