Strohfelder® EXTRA FEIN bedding is heat-treated at 120 °C, making it the safest bedding currently available on the market. Mold, fungus, salmonella, coli bacteria and other risk factors are eliminated from our bedding during the heat treatment.
Heat treatment of Strohfelder® bedding also ensures that its moisture content is less than 8%, meaning more actual product and less water in 1000 kg of litter, compared to other beddings with a moisture content of up to 12% or more.
Strohfelder® EXTRA FEIN absorbs more than 400% of moisture compared to its own weight.
Because of unique particle structure of Strohfelder® EXTRA FEIN, not only the absorption but also the evaporation of moisture from bedding is very fast, which ensures that it dries quickly and guarantees a clean and dry surface for your animals.
Strohfelder® EXTRA FEIN absorbs and eliminates the smell of ammonia, which considerably improves the quality of indoor air, thus increasing the levels of animal comfort and appetite.
