Inventory on the way
Unlike straw, Oilseed Rape Straw is not a highly digestible product so horses are less likely to eat it due to itsnatural bitter taste.
product can be mixed with shavings or used as a top up if your customer already uses shavings, its personal preference.
We do recommend using it on its own for the best low dust bedding experience for your horse!
Chopped Oilseed Rape Straw is:
Processed and de-dusted rigorously resulting in a soft, highly absorbent straw due to its cell like qualities – you’ll see spongy centre on the product.
Grown locally on our farm and in fields close to yourselves!
Our process chops the OSR straw into short stalks for urine to sit instead of dispersing across the entire bed.
We process the big bales and bag the product here on site in Grangegeeth – Sown and Grown in Leinster!
