Arden Promoting Poultry Bedding at South West Chicken Association Conference 2022

Arden Wood Shavings, a specialist poultry bedding company within the Veolia group, is looking forward to attending the South West Chicken Association Annual Trade Fair and Conference on 29 th March 2022.

The popular SWCA event returns after a two year absence due to the pandemic, and is expected to be very well attended as the poultry industry reunites to discuss the most topical issues within the sector.

As in previous years, the conference is being held at the Hilton Cadbury House Hotel in Congresbury, near Bristol.

Arden will be present at the conference and also has a stand in the trade fair area. We will be promoting our market leading Safemix Poultry bedding, which is the bedding of choice for many commercial poultry farms, alongside a brand new paper crumb bedding product developed for broilers, called Agribed.

Safemix, a blend of high quality wood shavings and clean sterile woodchip, is Arden’s flagship poultry bedding product providing maximum comfort for birds, as well as superb litter performance. Litter stays drier and friable for longer, and with excellent aerating and absorbency properties, Safemix greatly reduces the risk of hock burn, breast blisters and pododermatitis. Safemix is available in Bulk, Maxibales and Top-Up bales.

Joining Safemix, is a brand new product which we are very pleased to introduce, called Agribed. Produced by Veolia Organics, Agribed kiln-dried paper crumb bedding is proving a highly-effective solution for broilers. Approved by Defra, the EA and Red Tractor for use as animal bedding, Agribed is exceptionally absorbent for drier sheds needing less Top-Up bales, and is very clean and comfortable for poultry. It is also an excellent insulator with the added benefits of reducing ammonia levels and the risk of pododermatitis.

Whether it is Safemix or Agribed, poultry farmers can be assured of consistent quality, reliable supplies and excellent service from Arden Wood Shavings. We provide bio-secure deliveries to poultry farmers nationwide.

Our poultry bedding specialists will be attending the SWCA Trade Fair and Conference. If you are planning a visit, we will be delighted to tell you more about the trusted ‘poultry bedding solutions’ from Arden Wood Shavings.

We look forward to seeing you there, but if you can’t make the event and would like further details about any of our poultry bedding products, then please call Arden on 01675 443888 or contact us here.
