Reduce your material cost
Animal bedding is a major cost center for any operation. Based on surveys of our customers, the average material cost per week per stall (12 x 12) after switching to Natural Bedding dropped by 20%, and for many, much higher. The reason is that our bedding is so absorbent, muckers can easily remove concentrated areas without much loss of fresh material. This results in much lower consumption of bedding and more than offsets the price per pound difference.
Shrink your disposal costs
Your disposal options and associated cost is very much influenced by your location and setup. If you live in a location that requires hauling off the muck on a weight basis, then this product will undoubtedly be your best friend. By having to dispose of far less volume of waste, you can cut your disposal costs by as much as 40%. On the other hand, if you land-apply, you know how much labor is expended hauling, dumping, and spreading. By significantly reducing the number of trips, you can reduce your labor costs.
Reduce those pesky flies
Flies are annoying. So is the smell of a dirty stall. Our customers have told us one of their favorite features of Natural Bedding is the improved smell and major reduction in flies. The high absorbency helps to reduce the ammonia smell caused by unabsorbed urine while also reducing the number of flies. Less fly spray anyone?
