To maximize the benefits of green bedding, it should be applied as follows:
Dry fibers form resilient bedding and can dry faster. How dry the fibers can be depends on
the quality of the manure. If you leave the fibers unused for too long, they start to scald. The
energy that is present in the fibers allows the local temperature of up to 60/70 ºC
degrees. This will eliminate the resilient properties of the material.
Sprinkle an even layer of about 5 cm throughout the bedding. Then let the bedding dry
properly. This reduces the risk of overheating. With strong drying weather, it will only take
a day or two for it to be on quality. However, during wet, autumn weather, it can take 3 to 4
If the fibers are sufficiently dried, the next layer of bedding can be applied, another 5
cm. When you build the bed to the top of the rear edge of the area, the cows will lie more
towards the rear edge and will leave much less manure in the bedding. As a result, the cows are cleaner and less maintenance is required.
By regularly (at least 2x a day) removing any manure and wet spots, the bedding will remain
dry, clean, and resilient. It is sufficient to fill the bed with about 100 liters per week.
