Why Animal Bedding Pellets?
Many users will find that animal bedding pellets are a better option for their bedding needs than shavings or straw. Wood animal bedding pellets are an effective choice for stalls because they can soak up urine quickly and create a clumped, confined wet spot than can be easily removed. This makes cleaning stalls easy and creates a healthy, clean environment for your animals. The ease of the process saves time, and ultimately allows you to increase the amount of time you’re able to spend with your animals and your family.
Animal bedding pellets are:
- Easy to clean
- Not dusty after wet to expand
Animal bedding pellets are created from dry sawdust placed under high pressure and high temperatures. This process makes them super absorbent. The all-natural wood pellets bind with the ammonia in urine to form a clump and neutralize odor.
Unlike wood shavings, straw and sawdust, animal bedding pellets won’t stick to fur, blankets and other bedding. Additionally, the low-dust formulation reduces the amount of particulate matter in the air to help avoid respiratory problems sometimes caused by breathing in fine particles.
Because wood bedding pellets expand when wet, you’ll find they take less storage space than traditional bedding material. One 40 lb bag of animal bedding pellets can expand to cover approximately a 5.5-foot square stall with a 1.5 inch depth. Creating an even depth of pellets gives your animal a safe and shock absorbent footing.
Animal bedding pellets are sold individually in 40 lb bags, in a 1 ton pallet or in bulk. Regardless of whether you are buying pellets for your personal barn, business, or commercial enterprise, you’ll find the wood pellet option convenient for you. Our wood pellet delivery service makes our pellets accessible to all kinds of consumers.
Animal bedding pellets are highly compostable. Because they absorb so much moisture, wood pellets break down quickly when composted. When soiled with manure or feces, the high carbon content of the pellets promotes quick, eco friendly compost.

How Are Animal Bedding Pellets Made?
Energy Pellets of America makes wood animal bedding pellets from recycled wooden shipping pallets. No chemically treated pallets are used in the process, which makes our pellets all natural and safe to use for animal bedding.
To make wood pellets, Energy Pellets of America:
- Sources shipping pallets that are broken and no longer useful in the shipping industry.
- Breaks the pallets down into fine wood chips by using a hammer mill and grinder. This turns the wood chips into a sawdust-like material.
- Uses powerful magnets to removes screws, nails and metal other objects from the crushed wood.
- Compresses the remaining wood particles into dense pellets. No additional chemicals are used in this process.
- The wood pellets are bagged and shipped to retail stores and farm and business customers.
Then entire production and shipping process creates a wood pellet product that is accessible to consumers and an easy animal bedding solution.
Because our wood pellets are made from retired shipping pallets, the end result is a dense, hardwood blend pellet. The difference between the efficiency of pine pellets and our hardwood pellets is minimal.
