Highly Absorbent
What sets Hemcore apart from other bedding materials is its very high absorbency which results in a bed that stays drier longer. It is capable of absorbing far more moisture than either straw or wood shavings, and any wet areas that do have to be dug out are small by comparison. It makes a warm and comfortable bed which provides good insulation against cold and protection against injury.

Low Odour
Hemcore also absorbs ammonia very efficiently, reducing its harmful effects on a horse's respiratory system, and reducing stable odour.

Dust Extracted
Dust and spores are extracted from Hemcore to provide a cleaner stable environment. This is particularly important for horses with a respiratory disease, but also helps to prevent such problems developing. Hemcore is regularly batch tested for dust and spore counts by an independent laboratory.

Economical to Use
Although starting a bed with Hemcore may be a little more expensive than with other materials, its slower replacement rate soon evens out the costs. With Hemcore's unusually high absorbency, only 1/2 to 1 new bales should be needed every ten days.

Labour Saving
A Hemcore bed is quick and easy to maintain, staying drier and lasting longer than conventional materials. It should be disturbed as little as possible, with the droppings being removed regularly each day, and the wet material dug out as required.

Easy Disposal
Hemcore creates only a small manure heap, which rots down into quality garden compost in just a couple of months. This compares very favourably with the long time it takes straw, and particularly shavings, to decompose.

Convenient
Hemcore is supplied in watertight heat-sealed polythene bales, which are convenient to handle and can be stored inside or out. There is no waste and no mess.

Environmentally Friendly
Hemcore is made from a sustainable source and is completely biodegradable. It is packed in recyclable polythene.
