Powder Bed was developed by Platts to provide a hygienic and comfortable cubicle drying solution for your dairy cows, using a unique, super fine consistency of softwood sawdust to ensure a dry and clean environment.
It’s a fact that healthier happier cows produce better milk, so it is incredibly important that your cows are properly cared for.
Our PowderBED® softwood sawdust is a lot finer than traditional dairy cow bedding products, equivalent in consistency to talc. As a result of this extra softness, the chances of your cattle developing hock sores is significantly reduced, so your cows can always be comfortable.
PowderBED® also boasts excellent absorbency, ensuring that your cows are kept as dry and hygienic as possible, meaning higher quality milk.
Due to its super-fine particles, PowderBED® cubicle conditioner reduces pipe blockages in slurry systems- unlike sand and straw, which tend to cause build-up — so there is no need to change your existing setup to accommodate your new product.
The non-abrasive consistency of the sawdust greatly reduces the toil taken on machinery, meaning less maintenance and cleaning work for you.
This unique consistency also enables PowderBED® to be easily spread across mats and cubicles, either manually or mechanically for efficient, even coverage every time.
LESS IS BEST!
Less is best with PowderBED®. Only one large coffee cup of the product is all that’s needed to cover each cow mat, resulting in reduced costs for you, and making the process of distributing your bedding incredibly time efficient, decreasing your workload.
Using PowderBED® also means less muck and waste for your farmland. If your farm is a Nitrate Vulnerable Zone (NVZ), PowderBED® is therefore an ideal solution, as it will not affect large portions of land when it is being spread.
PowderBED® comes baled and ready for immediate use, wrapped in weatherproof packaging to sort your cubicle conditioner outdoors until you need it, offering convenience and freedom.
