Superfine Softwood Based Sawdust

Powder BED® is Platts’ fine, softwood-based sawdust, developed specifically to keep your dairy cows dry, clean and comfortable at all times.

Only one large cup of product is required per cow mat meaning a bale covers up to 50 cubicles. When palletised, our weather proof packaging gives farmers the extra bit of freedom, as pallets can be stored outside whatever the weather.

Also available in bulk, Powder BED® is delivered on an artic moving-floor vehicle, averaging 22-24 tonnes.

Comfortable Cattle


It’s a fact that healthier happier cows produce better milk, so it is incredibly important that your cows are properly cared for.


Our PowderBED® softwood sawdust is a lot finer than traditional dairy cow bedding products, equivalent in consistency to talc. As a result of this extra softness, the chances of your cattle developing hock sores is significantly reduced, so your cows can always be comfortable.


PowderBED® also boasts excellent absorbency, ensuring that your cows are kept as dry and hygienic as possible, meaning higher quality milk.

Supported Machinery


Due to its super-fine particles, PowderBED® animal sawdust reduces pipe blockages in slurry systems- unlike sand and straw, which tend to cause build-up — so there is no need to chance your existing setup to accommodate your new sawdust bedding.


The non-abrasive consistency of the bedding greatly reduces the toil taken on machinery, meaning less maintenance and cleaning work for you.


This unique consistency also enables PowderBED® to be easily spread across mats and cubicles, either manually or mechanically for efficient, even coverage every time.

Less is best!


Less is best with PowderBED®. Only one large coffee cup of the product is all that’s needed to cover each cow mat, resulting in reduced bedding costs for you, and making the process of distributing your bedding incredibly time efficient, decreasing your workload.


Using PowderBED® also means less muck and waste for your farmland. If your farm is a Nitrate Vulnerable Zone (NVZ), PowderBED® is therefore an ideal bedding solution, as it will not affect large portions of land when it is being spread.


PowderBED® comes baled and ready for immediate use, wrapped in weatherproof packaging to sort your bedding outdoors until you need it, offering convenience and freedom.
