 rapsorb-meniu

All types of rapeseed straw bedding are very absorbent thanks to stem cell structure. Cellulose is most responsible for a high liquid absorption of all natural fibres. Making a research content of cellulose, about a 49% content was found. It is higher than other straw based raw materials, it is higher about 13% comparing with wheat straw.

Another very important thing in choosing the material to make animal bedding is that rapeseed fibre length and width are about 3 times higher than wheat straw, so it naturally has less dust.

We took a risk to try a rapeseed straw as a base for our new premium horse bedding according to these scientific articles. We were lucky, since raps straw features, our great experience in agriculture and farming technological processes allowed us to make an excellent bedding product for horses – RAPSORB® rapeseed straw pellets.

From now it is well known as one of the best bedding for horses on the equine market.

APPLICATION OF RAPSORB®

IT MEANS THAT FOR ONE WELL-KEPT HORSE IT IS ENOUGH TO USE ONE PALLET OF OUR RAPSORB® RAPESEED STRAW PELLETS PER ONE YEAR.

  • At the beginning, you just need to lead your horse out from its box before adding the bedding.
  • For a 10 m2 box, you need 5-6 bags of 20 kg.
  • Spread the bedding evenly over the box floor to get approx. 50 mm layer of straw pellets.
  • Lightly mist the pellets with water to start pellet expansion.
  • Wait for about 15-25 minutes for the straw pellets to absorb water and expand in size.
  • Mix up it with a shovel. Wet again if some drier spots appear.
  • Then you can put the horse back in its box. The horse will help you to move things along. When adding more straw pellets, you should wet it again to activate the expansion.
  • To maintain a typical 10 m2 stable you will need to top up the bed with one 20 kg bag of straw pellets per week. Add the new pellets around the edge of the stable and let them break down.
  • Remove and replace it all between 4 to 6 weeks of usage.
  • Urine absorption in soft straw pellets is excellent, and so is ammonia and odour control. The waste is also low. The usage of straw pellets can cut the straw usage by half. As a result there is relatively little labour required.
