In many regions throughout the world, wood fiber animal bedding is a growing market that rivals even colored mulch in profitability and growth potential. Nothing turns wood waste into premium animal bedding more efficiently than Rotochopper grinding solutions. Rotochopper equipment offers “Perfect In One Pass” grinding simplicity for a broad range of materials, from pallets to round wood.

Multi-Stage Grinding Systems

For very fine bedding specifications (1/4” to 1/2” / 6 - 13 mm minus), Rotochopper multi-stage grinding systems offer single pass grinding precision. A multi-stage grinding system combines the versatility of a Rotochopper horizontal grinder with the fine milling efficiency of a hammermill. Raw wood waste, like pallets or sorted C & D, enters the horizontal grinder and flows seamlessly into the hammermill. The wood fiber comes out of the hammermill at final size specifications with no additional handling or hassle.

Advantages of Wood Fiber Bedding

A prevailing shortage of traditional agricultural residue animal bedding continues to drive the demand for bedding produced from wood waste. Plus, more farmers are realizing the advantages of wood fiber bedding over straw and other traditional bedding materials. For example, animal bedding produced with a wood grinder or hammermill does not compact and bind together as firmly as shavings or sawdust will. The rounded and frayed texture of ground wood fiber maintains air space to limit binding, while maximizing absorbency.
