Strohfelder® Platinum Fein is made from 100% pure wheat straw.
It does not contain chemical or natural additives, such as perfumes, extracts, binding agents or similar. Attention! The additives mentioned above may develop allergic reactions in animals and people! Strohfelder® bedding is virtually dust-free. All dust and smallest particles that do not meet our highest standards of product quality are removed from the litter during production and packaging stages. All Strohfelder® beddings are heat-treated at temperatures reaching 120°C, which makes them probably the safest litters on the market. Also, possible mold, fungus, salmonella, Coli bacteria and other risk factors are eliminated from the bedding during heat treatment. Furthermore, high-temperature treatment ensures a low level of moisture in our products (~8%), resulting in better performance of Strohfelder® bedding compared to other manufacturers’ beddings with moisture levels exceeding 10% up to 14 %. Platinum Fein absorbs more than 400% of moisture compared to its own weight. The bedding eliminates ammonia and absorbs its odour, thus significantly improving the feed conversion ratio (FCR). Strohfelder® Platinum Fein has a neutral pH level (pH 7).
By choosing Platinum Fein as the bedding for your poultry farm, you will be sure that you have minimized the potential risks and dangers related to litter; moreover, you will feel the financial gain of your right choice. The highest quality and purity of Strohfelder® bedding solutions is guaranteed by Austrian precise and continuous product development and broad knowledge of litter industry.
Platinum Fein is made from selected wheat straw, which makes it a nature-friendly litter. It leaves the smallest ecological footprint compared to other bedding materials such as peat, sawdust or wood shavings. Strohfelder® bedding is extremely soft and at the same time is dust-free. Platinum Fein absorbs over 400% of moisture compared to its own weight, which dramatically reduces the risks of humidity related hazards to poultry. The birds’ feet will always be dry. Platinum Fein will not cause allergies to the birds, unlike other beddings, such as wood shavings, because there is absolutely no gum turpentine in Strohfelder® beddings, which could hurt the eyes of your birds and irritate their respiratory tract. Due to the neutral pH level of Platinum Fein litter (pH 7), there will be fewer injuries of feet or alike, that are caused by too acidic or too alkaline litter, such as peat or wood shavings.
Strohfelder® Platinum Fein binds the ammonia and eliminates its odour, which greatly increases the quality of indoor air. The amount of ammonia in the farm has a direct impact on the FCR (feed conversion ratio). The use of Platinum Fein will improve the FCR of your poultry. Also, this innovative bedding saves your time, because considerably less time and effort are required for spreading, cleaning or removing Platinum Fein compared to other old-fashioned beddings. Naturally, the amount of waste will be reduced significantly. Used Strohfelder® Platinum Fein decomposes in 2-3 months, making it a great fertilizer for the fields, orchards, meadows or as an excellent raw material for biogas plants.
You will no longer need to rip, chop or kick your frozen bedding before its use, as Platinum Fein never freezes and is always ready for use.
Strohfelder® beddings will be delivered to your poultry farm strictly according to your production calendar, guaranteeing that you will always receive the litter on time!
And even more importantly, if you change your old- fashioned bedding to Strohfelder®, you will save not only your time but your money as well!
