Our Straw meal consists of natural, robust wheat straw that is finely ground.
Our Straw meal consists of natural, robust wheat straw that is finely ground. This means that there are hardly any stinging particles in the product left, which reduces the risk of udder inflammation (mastitis) triggered by klebsiella and swollen fetlock joints. The product is very soft and can absorb an extremely high amount of moisture, at least 300%.
In addition, compared to sawdust, straw improves the C/N ratio in the manure, which imparts a positive effect to the organic matter content of the soil. The compost can be disposed of in biogas plants in about 8 weeks.
Straw meal is ideal for use in dairy farming, but can also be used as fertiliser.
