Why should I use EnviroBed Premium?

“EnviroBed Premium provides a soft, skin friendly, comfortable bed which ensures good teat health and prevents bacteria internalisation and infection.”

EnviroBed Premium is a combination of our best-selling EnviroBed with high quality virgin sawdust dried to 95% for high absorbency. EnviroBed uses recycled waste paper crumb dried with renewable heat sources, before being mixed with a high quality virgin sawdust, meaning our bedding is 100% sustainable.

It is more cost effective than sawdust as it stays put on cubicles, even in open breezy housing. Thanks to the high absorbency of EnviroBed and the lightweight, voluminous sawdust, you need much less bedding per cubicle. This results in a lower bedding cost/cow/day.

EnviroBed Premium has a neutral pH of 7.4 which ensures that it is soft on skin, reducing the risk of teat skin irritation and corrosion which is commonly observed with strong alkaline bedding, such as lime-based products.

Whilst lime-based bedding products tackle the bacteria in the bedding material directly, EnviroBed instead prioritises a healthy and intact teat skin surface, preventing pathogenic bacteria which re naturally present on the farm and in cattle manure (E.Coli, Streptococcus, Staphylococcus) from penetrating the skin barrier and entering the teat body where they can lead to infection.

Additionally, the high cellulose content of the virgin sawdust makes the bedding less favourable to bacterial growth, ensuring a more hygienic cubicle environment.

The neutral pH of EnviroBed Premium also means it can be incorporated into slurry storage and AD systems without indiscriminately killing the beneficial bacteria which are breaking down the manure into spreadable, nutrient rich fertilizer, or producing valuable biogas.

This specialist dairy cow bedding is made by EnviroSystems at renewable heat production sites in Lancashire and Gloucestershire.

Cleaner, more comfortable cows…just good old fashioned stockmanship

Increasing numbers of farmers who really care about cow comfort and cleanliness are turning away from the various shortcomings of straw, sawdust, shavings, sand and recycled manure solids for cubicle bedding.

These farmers aren’t doing this because it’s fashionable, or an industry expert said they should, or even some new university research has been published. They’re doing it because they know – deep down in their stockmanship subconscious – that it’s simply the right thing for their cows.

It honours an old fashioned rule that will always hold true, through good and hard times alike: You look after your cows, and they’ll look after you.

A significant turning point appears to have been the launch in early 2016 of Envirobed Premium, the combination of dried paper crumb and premium quality sawdust.

These two materials create the closest so far to the perfect bedding material for today’s cow housing. It is ultra-high absorbency – 5x more than sawdust, 10x more than straw – mopping up urine and leaked milk to keep udders and teats clean.

Rather than being dragged into the slurry passage, which is a commonplace observation by farmers about wood shavings or sawdust, it stays where it’s put on cubicle beds. Together with extra fluffiness created by the sawdust, this also means the material goes further than either dried paper crumb or sawdust on their own.

Costing as little as 9-10 pence per cow, typical daily usage is about two litres per cubicle.

Envirobed production sites are having to run hard to keep up with orders. To match growing demand, new manufacturing facilities are being developed in a number of rural locations – including some farms – around the country, one aim being to keep transport costs as low as possible. The drying techniques are designed to create just the right combination of physical properties: Absorbency, cow comfort and on-cubicle retention.

What farmers say about EnviroBed

“We have used EnviroBed for many years and find its high absorbency and staying where it’s put on cubicle beds are vital to maintaining low mastitis incidence and somatic cell counts.” – John Yeoman, Y Farms, Somerset​

“EnviroBed is the best bedding I’ve used for a long time. The cows like it, it stays on the beds and it’s lasting far longer than other bedding products I’ve used before.”– Charles Morley, New House Farm, Derbyshire 

Neil Bellerby, dairy farmer at Oxclose Farm in Northallerton 

. Milking 250 dairy cows is a big enough work load for any family but put 1000 dairy goats into the mix and you have the ultimate commitment to milk production. He says:

“EnviroBed’s high absorbency makes a significant contribution to our cow comfort. We also use the bedding in the milking collection area for our goats for its high level of absorbency.”
