Are you considering switching your habitat substrate to wood animal bedding pellets? You’ll find that switching to bedding pellets can be beneficial for your animals and the environment. Learn how many animal bedding pellets you’ll need for your habitat.
How Many Animal Bedding Pellets Do I Need for my Habitat?
Animal bedding pellets are dense wood pellets used in animal pens, stalls, and barns. The bedding makes for easy cleaning and provides shock absorption and footing for your animal.
Energy Pellets of America’s bedding pellets are made from compressed wood. Our wood pellets are made from untreated shipping pallets that are no longer in use in the shipping industry. This makes our eco friendly pellets biodegradable, renewable, compostable and good for the Earth.
The amount of bedding pellets you’ll need depends on how you’ll be using them, the size of your stall and the animals you keep. There are two ways to use animal bedding pellets: In their whole form or in an expanded form.
If you are using animal bedding pellets in their whole form, you might find that the amount you need depends on the size of the animal you keep. As an example, a 10-foot by 10-foot stall utilized for a cow or horse will require 2 or 3 forty pound bags. The same size stall for a goat, sheep, or pig might only take 1 or 2 forty pound bags. It’s usually better to start with a minimum amount and then add more once the animal begins to use the habitat.
You’ll likely need more animal bedding pellets if you’re using them in their moistened, expanded form. You could find a typical 12-foot by 12-foot stall will take between 6 and 8 bags of pellets to reach a depth that is comfortable for larger animals and easy to clean. Again, it is usually better to start with a small amount and then add more once the animal begins to use the habitat.
