Burlybed Light is made from 100% Oilseed Rape Straw. The harvested straw is processed right here on the farm.
100% Oilseed Rape Straw
Easy to maintain
Oilseed rape is mainly grown for its oil-rich seed with the majority of the stems of the plant being a by-product. It is this by-product straw that we source from British Farm Assured farms in the South of England.
During the production process, the raw material is shredded and dust extracted to produce a finely chopped, soft, fluffy and free-draining product that is then baled, stacked, wrapped and sent on its way to our stockists.
We add nothing to our Burlybed Light except our time and expertise. Every bale is 100% Rape Straw so that the very best, totally natural, product makes its way to your horses or ponies stable.
HOW DO I USE BURLYBED LIGHT?
You can use our bedding however suits your horse and your own stable management, but for the very best results, we suggest a deep bed. A deep bed allows wet to drain through and be absorbed at the base keeping the surface dry. The droppings on the surface can be easily removed. The chop size is designed to easily fall through your fork reducing wastage.
In an average 12’x12’ stable we recommend using 4 – 6 bales to set up a bed. Top up when necessary.
HOW QUICKLY DOES IT ROT DOWN?
As a 100% natural product, it rots down quicker than shavings and straw and can be spread straight on the land with no negative effect.
I LIKE THE SCENTED BEDDING TO MASK ODOURS, WHY ISN’T BURLYBED LIGHT SCENTED?
We pride ourselves in producing 100% natural products and as such have decided not to treat our Light with any additives or scents.
IS IT COMPLETELY DUST FREE?
We take the time to dust extract Burlybed Light in its processing. We would never claim to be 100% dust free. What we can say is that it has low dust content.
