At Platts, we’re best known for our palletised Animal Bedding products. With numerous advantages to the easy-to-use baled product, it continues to be a farmer’s favourite.
All of our products are available packaged in bales, and are suitable for outdoor storage, whatever the weather, thanks to the weatherproof hood. UV protected, the plastic won’t crack or split in the sunlight for up to 2 years, so your bedding stays clean and dry until needed. Since indoor storage space is often at a premium on busy farms, why not take advantage of baled bedding for extra flexibility?
Farmers who’ve compared baled sawdust to bulk products have often found that when using baled product- they have an improved handle on exactly how much bedding they’re using.
Ideal for using with mechanical bedding machines, or push-along spreaders, our easy-to-handle bales making loading quick, easy and mess-free.
For cow mats/mattresses, our Powderbed and Finebed sawdust is designed to be used sparingly for the best value.
