We’re proud to offer a fantastic alternative to traditional wood based animal bedding. We are a dealer for Midwestern First Choice Bedding’s straw pellets, made right here in the good old USA. These pellets are fantastic for multiple uses, and the best part is they are made from 100% wheat straw, all non-GMO of course!

The pellets are excellent for improving stall air quality and helping to reduce issues related to chronic respiratory diseases.
The production “cook” process removes dust and dirt while baking out 99% of mold or allergens. Air quality should definitely be something we all keep in mind no matter what we’re bedding with, so along with products that don’t irritate the lungs of your animals, consider your ventilation and air exchange as well. Those of course, are management topics for another discussion, but keep it in mind.
Hoof health also comes into play.
Many people find that the hooves of some of their animals just plain do better on straw pellets. At any rate, we have the pellets available in 40 lb bags. There are 50 on a pallet, on a standard 40 x 48 pallet.
By the way, these straw pellets are absolutely excellent as a mulch for your home garden!
Straw pellets will not hurt your soil pH like wood based products will. In fact, they will offer some fertility value, but will do the most benefit in terms of boosting your organic matter content.
We love using this product and are proud to offer these pellets to our customers.
