Hemp shives (woody stalk) can be used for horse and small rodent bedding.
How it’s Made:
Hemp bedding is made by stripping the fibers off the hemp stem and process it.(1)
Hemp bedding makes hygienic animal bedding because of its natural anti-bacterial properties, dust free and high absorption.(2)
Hemp beddings are known to be relatively expensive and the initial cost is discouraging.(3)
Industrial hemp was traditionally cultivated as a fiber source with a long history with human civilization usually found near early nomadic settlements close to streams in well-manured areas.(4)
Looking to the Future:
Hemp will be the bedding of the future and is the best substrate on the market because hemp bedding can provide a healthy bedding alternative to current bedding options.(5)
