Bedding is used to keep the sheep clean and dry.
Peat is highly absorbent, holding 10 times its own weight in moisture. Sheep are content, clean and comfortable when bedded on peat.
Due to its high absorption rate; peat is more cost effective than straw so has the added benefit of lower labour costs. It is safe to use and easily stored. Bedding will remain dry for up to eight to ten weeks.
Mór Peat Moss is an Irish, organic product. It is also recyclable and can be spread after use directly on the land. It is an excellent agent to condition soil.
