EZ EQUINE Animal Bedding Q&A

WHAT IS EZ EQUINE?
EZ Equine is the most premium animal bedding, made from tiny, compressed particles of 100% biodegradable raw, white, soft pine. EZ Equine does not contain additives, binders or chemicals whatsoever and is pure, green bedding. No harmful bark or hardwoods are present, which creates a consistent, high quality product.

Our pellets are made entirely from wood by-products from our Lignetics Pres-to-Log facilities. We do not use foreign substances in their production, which assures you the pellets are made from pure, raw softwood. In addition, this means no trees are ever cut to produce EZ Equine animal bedding.

WHY IS EZ EQUINE BETTER THAN WHAT I AM USING?
EZ Equine is made from 100% biodegradable pine. EZ Equine does not contain additives, binders or chemicals whatsoever and is pure softwood. EZ Equine is a sterile, mold and bacteria free product. You add only one bag of pellets every 5-7 days and strip the stall every several months. Removal costs will be dramatically reduced. Stall cleaning time will be cut in half. With EZ Equine, removal volume may be reduced by up to 50%. This greatly reduces handling costs and the resulting is some of the most sought-after compost available. This high-quality compost can even produce income. EZ Equine is so absorbent that it is only necessary to spot-clean stalls for most of the life of the bedding. This means you only compost bedding that is completely used to its capacity, not bedding that could be used again.

HOW IS EZ EQUINE MADE?
White softwood shavings and sawdust are reduced to a very tiny granular size. Then we subject them to intense heat in the mill to remove almost all moisture and impurities. The pelletizing machine then applies extreme pressure and heat, further reducing moisture. Then the pellets emerge, made whole through bonding that occurs with the small amounts of natural lignum found in the wood fiber. EZ Equine horse bedding contains no additives to force bonding. Pellets pass through several dust eliminators and onto the packaging line where they are bagged in forty-pound weather-resistant sacks. The finished animal bedding pellets contain less than 6% moisture.

IS EZ EQUINE REALLY CHEAPER IN THE LONG RUN?
While the initial cost of EZ Equine pelletized bedding may be higher, the costs here even out, because you will have to spend more on labor to deal with the higher volume of bedding pellets used with inferior products. EZ Equine pine bedding is so absorbent that it is only necessary to spot-clean stalls for most of the life of the pellets. This means you only compost bedding that is completely used to its capacity, not bedding that could be used again. With EZ Equine, once a stall is prepared it only takes about five minutes to maintain it per day. Because a complete stripping is necessary less often, you save time, and also money.

IS EZ EQUINE SAFE?
EZ Equine is made from 100% biodegradable pine. EZ Equine pelletized bedding does not contain additives, binders or chemicals whatsoever and is pure, biodegradable softwood. No harmful bark or hardwoods are present, which creates a consistent, high quality pine bedding product. EZ Equine is sterile, mold and bacteria-free equine bedding. Because the processing removes natural wood oils, it also does away with contaminants, such as those in products containing hardwoods. Using EZ Equine pellet bedding can help you protect your animals from illness and you from unnecessary veterinarian bills. Because EZ Equine can hold a large volume of urine, this slows down the chemical breakdown of urine into ammonia by bacteria. This hypoallergenic tendency, in turn, reduces health issues associated with ammonia and its unpleasant smell. In addition, EZ Equine pellets eliminate staining of light-coated animals because they wick moisture away. The need to keep horses’ hooves dry to prevent thrush is easily achieved with EZ Equine pine bedding. Even veterinarians and farriers recommend EZ Equine to eliminate stall moisture and keep horses’ hooves in tip-top shape.
