About Envirosystems

Innovating for Today’s Farming Families 

EnviroSystems is a British family business which produces cutting-edge solutions for farmers, including recycled, hygienic livestock bedding and industry-leading slurry and silage inoculants.

Understanding Dairy Farmers’ Needs 

EnviroSystems founder and director Liz Russell was born and raised on a dairy farm in Lancashire, in the North West of England.

Liz launched EnviroSystems in 2001 to introduce a brand new type of bedding material to the farming market – as a cost effective alternative to straw and sawdust, the main options at the time.

EnviroBed is Born

Since the early days, EnviroBed has been helping farmers to control cell counts. It’s absorbency and high dry matter encourages cows to lie down for longer and produce more milk.

EnviroBed received a Queen’s Award for Innovation in 2006 for turning paper crumb waste material into a useful and extremely absorbent and hygienic bedding product.

The Next Generation EnviroBed Premium

EnviroBed has undergone nearly 20 years of continuous improvement and added innovation. As a result it is now fluffier than ever and EnviroBed Premium with kiln dried sawdust is also available which had been requested by farmers over the years.

So if you tried our livestock bedding years ago it’s well worth taking a look at a sample today, you can request a sample here. Improvements include processing and utilising renewable waste heat to dry the bedding.

Available in Bulk and Bags

EnviroBed Original and Premium cubicle bedding are available from our distribution network at Foggs Farm in Lancashire, Lydney in Gloucestershire and Aylescott in Devon for self-collection, by the lorry load or small bags on pallets.

Harnessing the Power of Micro Biology

The 21st century is already seeing a new biological revolution in farming. Our focus is to help you harness microbiological miracles all around us, invisible to the naked eye, but capable of transforming agricultural production for the better.

Feeding Slurry with Friendly Bacteria – SlurryBugs

Since we introduced SlurryBugs to farmers in 2003, and more recently Crust Buster and Shift IT for more extreme situations, it has been helping to improve the quality of slurry in a natural way.

As well as breaking down crusts, reducing smell and making slurry more homogeneous for more even spreading onto land, Slurry Bugs also retains nutrients for a higher fertiliser value slurry.

We are very interested in looking at the effect using biological inoculants can have on slurry emissions and are currently researching this.

More CP & Energy in Every Mouthful of Forage – OptiSile

We have been involved in high quality silage inoculants for 20 years which has led to many farmers winning local and national silage competitions.

Using this knowledge, we now manufacture OptiSile forage inoculants for the treatment of grass, maize and wholecrop silage at our UFAS and Local Authority registered premises in Lancashire.

OptiSile silage additives are organically registered and improve the quality of your clamped and bailed silage – keeping it cool and stable with minimal waste all winter – for more energy from every mouth full.

EnviroCare Teat Cleaners

In line with our passion for comfy and hygienic cows, more recent additions to the product range are super gentle EnviroCare which has non-antibiotic properties.

QC Tested for Added Assurance

All the products listed above are formulated and tested in our QC laboratories to the highest standards.
