Agribed Poultry Bedding

If you are looking for an alternative, affordable and effective solution for your commercial poultry bedding needs, then Agribed is just the product for your broiler business.

Agribed is a sterile kiln-dried paper crumb bedding that has been developed for poultry broilers and turkeys. While offering many benefits to the health and comfort of poultry flocks, there is also the opportunity to save money on bedding costs.

We found the Agribed bedding to be very durable, and saw a substantial decrease in the number of top up bales required. The catchers also commented on how clean the birds were both at thinning and at final catch.

We find the paper crumb works very well for our broilers. It absorbs more moisture but releases it just as efficiently so it is easier to work with and manage. This results in the use of fewer top-up bales, therefore saving us both time and money.

What is paper crumb and how is Agribed produced?

British paper mills generate significant quantities of surplus non-hazardous solids or by-products, known as paper crumb year on year.

The fibres in paper and cardboard get recycled approximately five times, depending on the type of paper which is being produced by these mills. These fibres are then discarded in the pulping process and end up in the by-product we call paper crumb. 

We take the paper crumb and kiln dry it in a way that ensures very low dust is created from the end product. Kiln drying also ensures the product is sterile and safe to use under your poultry.

The final product is Agribed, an alternative, affordable and effective solution for your commercial poultry, made entirely in Great Britain for our Great British Farmers.
