Proteq Equine Bedding is a premium wood based product manufactured in Australia from untreated softwood shavings and sawdust, which are by-products of the sustainably managed Australian softwood timber industry.
Proteq is heat processed to ensure the highest quality clean bedding is delivered to your stables. Specifically developed for the Equine industry, Proteq has superior benefits in comparison to traditional bedding. Its ease of use, super absorbency and health benefits to horses means that you and your stabled mates will be very happy using Proteq.
The wood pellets are made from softwood sourced from well-managed FSC accredited sustainably managed plantations, which makes Proteq environmentally friendly. Proteq is an all-natural product that is hygienically clean and super absorbent ensuring a healthy long-lasting alternative to shavings, rice, paper or straw bedding.
Proteq Equine Bedding comes with 5 superior benefits to ensure your stable performs at it’s best.
Clean and Healthy
Heat treatment of 100% natural pine removes tars, oils, hydrocarbons and other potential allergens. This results in a clean, pest free bedding which reduces ammonia levels in stabled environments eliminating bad odours and reducing respiratory issues. Additional dust screening significantly helps reduce triggers in respiratory sensitive horses whilst preventing problems beginning in others.
Helps your bottom line in many ways including:
- Reduced bedding usage by up to 50%
- Significantly less soiled bedding to dispose of
- Less time spent mucking out stalls
Once set up, Proteq is so much easier to use than traditional bedding. Most users find that due to superior absorbency only urine spots and manure need to be removed meaning more clean bedding stays in your stall and less needs to be added.
Natural softwood pine pellets have an extremely low moisture content
(6-8% in comparison to an average of 48% moisture in traditional sawdust or straw) making them ideal for quickly absorbing wet spots which form small clumps for easy removal. This significantly reduces the likeliness of urine pooling at the bottom of the stable thus reducing ammonia levels building up.
Easy to use, stackable bags take up significantly less space than conventional sawdust and result in a cleaner, more organised stable environment.
100% all natural pine composts quickly and efficiently and is safe to go straight out from your stable to your gardens or manure pile.
