Bed-Down Rapasorb horse bedding is manufactured from high quality rape straw which is chopped to expose the highly absorbent inner pith and dust extracted with our EASY BREATHE™ process to safeguard respiratory health. A pleasant fragrance is also added to keep the stable fresh for you and your horse.
Rapasorb is more absorbent than conventional straw and it is also very durable, warm and comfortable ensuring that your horse will be happy and safe when stabled. Unlike conventional straw products Rapasorb is naturally unpalatable and so it is suitable for horses that are on a restricted diet. Rapasorb is also a great alternative to more expensive Hemp and Flax products.
Rapasorb is made from sustainable rape straw which will degrade in 3-6 months. As Rapasorb is highly absorbent waste is kept to a minimum making your muck heap smaller.
Bed-Down Rapasorb is also great for poultry and game birds
How to use Rapasorb
Rapasorb works best by establishing a bed of between 3” – 4” as this will allow the wet to filter through to the base and the top will stay dry and clean. Rapasorb can be mucked out fully daily but for the best and most economical result follow below:
To Start – use approximately 6 bales (12 x 12 stable) to start the bed. This will make a deep and comfortable bed.
Daily – Remove droppings on a daily basis and tidy bed.
Weekly – Remove the wet patch and top up the bed with fresh Rapasorb.
