Key Benefits of Straw & Miscanthus Pellets

Swab test results below show how effective our Protek anti-bacteria treatment is at controlling bacteria & stopping infections. Protek is fully approved for competition horses and Protek EnviroCair Veterinary Concentrate is DEFRA approved. We also offer untreated pellets if preferred.

PelletBeds are the most absorbent pellet bedding available, offering up to 3x the absorbency of shavings whilst containing ~20% dust.

We support British farming, sourcing our straw & miscanthus from local farmers, then process it into our unique bedding pellets. We do not sell fuel pellets or imported pellets, which can be dusty and may contain additives that are harmful to animals.

PelletBeds are available in 15kg returnable plastic bags, which can be opened easily & safely without requiring a knife. We can also supply economic & eco-friendly 1000kg bulk bags.

We deliver using small 7.5t tail-lift trucks, allowing access into difficult locations & can offer timed deliveries as well as a small bag off loading service for an additional charge. All our pallets include a reusable pallet hood to give the bags extra protection from the weather.
