Providing bedding for your livestock is important to their comfort and health. Bedding helps reduce heat loss during cold seasons, reduces pressure on skin when the animal rests, and helps contain animal waste. Your need of livestock bedding will vary depending on the livestock in question. For instance, pigs require less bedding than beef or milk giving cows.
At Parma Post and Pole we produce wood shavings and wood chips.
Using wood shavings as livestock bedding has been proven to be a suitable choice. Wood shavings provide comfort, absorbency, and warmth. Wood shavings work great for cattle bedding and landscaping.
Wood chips are a mix of bark and post peelings. This type of livestock bedding may be cheaper, especially when straw is scarce. This type of livestock bedding may be less expensive and comparable to the size of corn flakes.
