Finebed was developed by Platts to provide a hygienic and comfortable bedding solution for your dairy cows, using a unique, super fine consistency of softwood sawdust to ensure a dry and clean environment.
As its name suggests, FineBed is finer than most other types of softwood sawdust dairy cattle bedding. Using our innovative blending machinery, we ensure that all FineBed grains are screened to 3mm or less to achieve an ultra soft consistency, meaning that your cows are kept comfortable at all times.
It’s a fact that the more comfortable your cows, the happier they are, and thus the better the quality of the milk they produce- meaning more profit for you.
Keeping your cattle dry, comfortable and cosy will help to ensure that they remain healthy and are less likely to become ill. Cows with ill-health are less likely to produce milk to the quality standards you need to adhere to in order to meet your customers’ needs, which is why having the right bedding for your cattle is so important.
FineBed’s particles are highly absorbent, to ensure that your cow’s bedding environment is kept hygienic throughout the day. This reduces the likelihood of your dairy cows contracting a bacterial infection and becoming ill, so you can rest assured of quality produce for your customers.
Unlike some other types of dairy cattle bedding, such as sand and straw, FineBed has been specifically developed by Platts to reduce pipe blockages in slurry systems. It’s unique fine particles don’t cause build-up in your machinery, so you can pump your slurry as efficiently as possible, meaning less maintenance work for you.
We package our FineBed in easy-to-handle bags, which can be carried and used to direct apply the sawdust to cattle cubicle beds. These bags are a great way to monitor your usage of the product, to accurately calculate the amount and cost of bedding required per cow.
These bags are stacked on pallets and protected by a secure weatherproof hood, to enable flexible outdoor storage until you need to use your bedding.
