OzHemp - Mini Hemp 12L Pack
Made from the delicate woody core of fibre hemp. Hemp is super absorbent, natural anti-bacterial, dust-free, sustainable, eco-friendly product. It makes a warm and comfortable bed that provides good insulation against cold and protection against injury. Mini-Hemp® also absorbs ammonia very efficiently, reducing its harmful effects on the respiratory system, reduces odour and a natural fly repellant.
Highly Absorbent: Mini-Hemp® is capable of absorbing far more moisture than either straw or wood shavings, and any wet areas that do have to be removed are small by comparison. It makes a warm and comfortable bed that provides good insulation against cold and protection against injury.
Low Odour: Mini-Hemp® also absorbs ammonia very efficiently, reducing its harmful effects on the respiratory system, and reduces odour.
Dust Extracted: Mini-Hemp® Dust and spores are extracted from Mini-Hemp® to provide a cleaner stable environment. This is particularly important for animal with a respiratory disease, but also helps to prevent such problems developing. Mini-Hemp® is regularly batch tested for dust and spore counts by an independent laboratory.
Economical to Use: Less Mini-Hemp® is needed to do the same job as other litters. With Mini-Hemp® high absorbency, wet areas tend to be smaller and noticeable less often. It is easy to use and cost effective.
Labour Saving: Mini-Hemp® bedding or litter box is quick and easy to maintain, staying drier and lasting longer than conventional materials. It should be disturbed as little as possible, with the wet material removed as required.
Easy Disposal: Mini-Hemp® creates only a small manure heap, which rots down into quality garden compost in just a few weeks. This compares very favourably with the long time it takes straw, shaving and particularly clay or diatomaceous earth, to decompose
Environmentally Friendly: Mini-Hemp® is made from a sustainable source and is completely biodegradable.
The super absorbent hemp bedding allows the bedding material to stay dry. By maintaining a dry bedding many problems such as hock burn, breast blister and pododermatitis will be reduced, if not eliminated. Mini-Hemp® creates a dust free environment for the birds: eliminating respiratory, nasal and eye infections that are often found in birds housed on traditional materials such as wood shavings and straw. Hemp bedding encourages the poultry to forage thus reducing boredom. Hemp bedding makes cleaning much easier, less frequently needed, and leaves the chicken coop smelling fresh. Once mucked out the soiled bedding breaks down within 8 weeks into quality organic garden compost.
Mini-Hemp® Bedding absorbs up to 12 times more liquid than straw and 4 times more than shavings.
Mini-Hemp is available in 12L and 48L bags.
