When we make Burlybed Original, our chopped miscanthus bedding, our bespoke production process shreds and breaks up the hard outer casing of the cane to expose the soft and pithy inner core. As part of this production process a proportion of the raw material is taken to create our newest product, Burlybed Original Pellets.

Original Pellets provide ultra-absorbency and odour control from a soft and cushioning bed while being economical and time saving to use. Our tests show that our miscanthus pellets are significantly more absorbent than wood or straw pellet alternatives.

Burlybed Original Pellets are quick to muck out with very little wastage and are incredibly quick to rot down on the muck heap, quicker than straw and shavings.

Each pellet is 100% Miscanthus, processed on the farm so that the very best, natural product makes its way to your horses or ponies stable. Each bag is made from a minimum of 1/3 recycled materials and is fully recyclable.

You can use our bedding however suits your horse and your own stable management. For an average 12?x12? stable we recommend using 5 to 7 bags for a traditional bed and up to 8 for deep litter. When setting up add half to one full bucket of water per bag allowing the pellets to swell, creating a fluffy and supportive bed. Regularly remove wet and droppings and add additional pellets as required.

Dampen the bed as necessary to maintain an economical bed and healthy environment.
