Oat Hulls For Bedding
Keep Your Animals Warm And Dry With Oat Hulls For Bedding
As a farmer, you care about making your animals comfortable and keeping them healthy. If you're thinking about using oat hulls for bedding, you're making a smart decision. Using oat hulls for bedding keeps your animals warm and dry, even when weather conditions are less than ideal.
When you choose to use oat hulls fibre for animal bedding, the oat hulls are blended into the straw that you normally use. Oat hulls fibre is especially useful to help keep young calves warm during cold winters. Many turkey farmers also use oat hulls for bedding for turkeys. In this case, it's a good idea to mix the oat hulls with sawdust to keep the bedding for the turkeys dry.
In addition to using oat hulls for bedding, you can also use oat hulls fibre as an added organic material to the compost pile on your farm. This can help with the decomposition process, making it easier for you to develop new soil. There's no need for any special type of process to add the oat hulls to your compost pile. Simply mix them in like you would any other organic material and allow the hulls to do the work.
Using oat hulls on your farm has a number of advantages, and you can't get any more natural than oat hull fiber. Reach out to us at Prairie Lakes Milling Inc. to learn more about how we can provide you with the oat hull fibre you need for your bedding and composting needs.
