Flax in Bloom Canadian Prairies.
Flax is widely produced around the world for it's Seed, Seed Oil, and Linen Fiber (Linen Fabric) with the highest acreage production right here in Canada. Flax has been used for centuries, and is one of the worlds oldest cultivated crops dating back thousands of years. After the seed is harvested, the remaining Flax straw goes for processing to harvest fiber from the stalks, this includes the inner core fiber protected and encased at the center of the stock, known as the Shive Material. (Flax Shives)
Highly Absorbent and processed Dust Free, Flax Shives are an ideal bedding material that's all natural, safe and hygienic. Upon comparison, shives are far superior to all wood bedding materials and cereal straws. Widely used throughout Europe by Equestrians, Livestock and Pet owners, Flax Shives are quickly becoming the bedding of choice!
PrimeBed is produced here in Canada, and Supports Canadian Farmers.
The Origin of PrimeBed...It All Begins With Flax
PrimeBed is very unique from other forms of bedding materials, in that Urine Binds and Absorbs at the bottom of the bedding only, unlike all other traditional bedding types that get and remain wet from the top down, or are just poor absorbency overall, like Shavings or Straw.
PrimeBed is Different; it repels Urine upon surface contact, where it quickly migrates downward to the bottom of the bed. Once there, it will settle at floor level absorbing at the base of the bed. With the absorption area remaining isolated at or near the bottom, your upper levels and surface remains dry, clean, and more hygienic, ammonia emissions are reduced, and as always your bedding remains virtually dust free! With the top layers of the bed now remaining dry and fluffy, manure picks off quick and easy, as Primebed sifts very efficiently through your bedding fork, resulting in little to no waste being generated from the surface and upper regions. The absorbed urine zones below the dry surface will clump and form a mat layer, that can be left unattended for long periods of time. Removal of the clumped or matted moist material below can be as little as once or twice a week if you choose, without disturbing it.
With the greater performance and efficiency provided by PrimeBed, you can expect low waste and longer sustainability of your bedding, and most importantly, higher comfort levels provided for your animals, combined with a cleaner, drier, and more hygienic stall environment. Users tell us that Horses and Livestock lie down more with PrimeBed in their stall compared to other bedding materials, and remain cleaner without moisture soiled bedding stains being left on coats and blankets. Users also say that Fly Populations are reduced due to the lack of urine soaked top bedding being exposed in the stall, or unabsorbed urine remaining on stall floors.
Hypoallergenic: PrimeBed has a Neutral pH, and is known to be beneficial and preventative for animals prone to skin allergies.
Thermal Insulator: PrimeBed is a natural insulator, and self-regulates to provide a comfortable cool bedding in summer, and a warm & inviting bedding in winter.
The Environment and Composting
When it comes to the environment, there are three words that are most important, "Organic" "Renewable" and "Sustainable", PrimeBed is All 3.
Not only is it All Natural, Organic, and from a Renewable and Sustainable Resource, it is also CO2 Neutral. You can be assured that you are doing your part to reduce your own Carbon Foot Print, in our effort to reduce global warming...but only with PrimeBed in your stalls!
PrimeBed is also safe for disposal, or better yet, transforms into a wonderful organic compost & fertilizer component with your own barn waste, for Pastures, Lawns and Gardens. In addition, PrimeBed is "pH neutral", as garden and landscape plants grow best in soils with pH values between 6.0 and 7.2 Primebed's pH value is perfect at 6.5. Further; it has the ideal Carbon to Nitrogen Balance (c/n ratio) for fertilizer use, very important because all wood bedding varieties are pure carbon, which deplete soils of much needed nitrogen (N). PrimeBed is also approved for use in Certified Organic Growing Environments, and should biodegrade on your manure pile, or in your compost, in approximately 8 weeks time.
Even our brown bags are planet friendly & 100% biodegradable, unlike other commonly used plastic bedding bags, which do not biodegrade.
