Our baled pine woodshavings are suitable for use as a bedding litter in horse stables, chicken nests and sheds, calf sheds and other types of animal enclosures. Our standard bale weighs approximately 14kg and provides approximately 0.18 cubic metres of uncompressed volume. The benefits are:
The woodshavings are a by-product from the timber milling process and have been kiln dried to achieve a moisture content of between 8% and 13%.
The shavings are all natural and free of any chemical additives.
All shavings go through a screening process to remove the smaller particles and sawdust, thus providing very good absorbency.
As we are located onsite with a timber mill, the shavings are transferred directly from the timber milling process into our baling equipment. This eliminates the use of trailers and by doing so eliminates risk of contaminants in our shavings.
Superior Shavings is a privately owned business that commenced operation in 2002. The sole business activity of Superior Shavings is the packaging and sale of kiln-dried pine woodshavings.
In 2019, we relocated from Holbrook to Tumut (NSW). We are now located in the foothills of the Snowy Mountains and are onsite with our main supplier of the raw product. This reduces transportation costs and also ensures product quality, with the clean shavings transferred directly from the timber mill into our baling equipment.
As our main customers are in the poultry, equine and cattle industries, we adhere to strict quarantine requirements to ensure the product remains clean and hygienic.
We have supplied our packaged shavings into every state of Australia and our product is used extensively as bedding litter for chickens, horses and cattle breeders and enthusiasts. Please search the 'stockists' section of our website to find a seller of 'Superior Shavings' in your area.
