Benefits of Flax:
Animal Health – A dust-free bedding benefits horses with respiratory and skin disorders as well as overall health. “It has long been known that lower respiratory illness is common in horses, and this is typically attributed to the amount of dust in barns,” says Melissa R. Mazan, DVM, associate professor of clinical sciences at the Cumming School.
Eco-Friendly – A natural renewable source made from 100% natural flax provides a clean, non-dust environment for healthy animals. It also makes an excellent compost with a neutral PH, giving back to the soil instead of depleting it. We package in recyclable paper bags or reusable recycled plastic bags. Flax is naturally high in nitrogen and does not need to be composted. It can be spread immediate;y and used as an organic fertilizer.
Odour and Absorbency – It virtually eliminates all odour by absorbing 4x more than wood shavings and more per square meter than any other bedding. It works by absorbing liquids at the base of the stall bed. The increased surface area of the bedding allows air to act as a natural cushion separating the wet areas from the dry, resulting in the top layer of bedding remaining soft, dry, warm in cooler climates and cool in warmer climates. This makes our product ideal for smaller indoor animals and poultry.
Cost Effectiveness – Less time and product is needed to maintain and clean a stall. There is less waste resulting in lower disposal cost, if any.
