Evidence based solutions to Unhealthy dusty stalls. Here is the science behind the bedding.

      

UNIVERSITY RESEARCH

  • The University of Vermont tested water absorbency rates of cardboard bedding at four to six times greater than dry sawdust and ten times greater than straw or hay.            (click chart)
  • Colorado State University Department of Animal Science’s study of cardboard versus sawdust as bedding for horses concluded that “cardboard bedding was more absorbent, had a cleaner appearance and had lower aerial ammonia levels than the sawdust bedding.”
  • A University of Florida Horse Research Center study comparing cardboard bedding material against straw and wood shavings stated, “The horses on straw required an average of 17.9 lbs. per day.  Those on wood shavings required 39.5 lbs. per day, while those on cardboard required only 12.2 lbs. per day.”
  • The University of Delaware in conjunction with The University of Florida showed that cardboard bedding had much lower ammonia levels than straw or pine shavings. (click chart)                                                                                                          Laurent Couetil – Purdue University wrote:  To main approaches can help reduce exposure of the horse’s airways to respirable particles. The 1st approach is to use feedstuffs and bedding that generate low dust and endotoxin concentrations.  The 2nd approach is to increase removal of airborne particles and noxious gases by improving ventilation in the building.                                                                                                                                 Changing bedding material to cardboard can cut respirable dust concentrations in half and reduce concentration to negligible concentrations. Replacing hay feed, straw and wood bedding to cardboard bedding and a complete pelleted diet  was shown to decrease the respirable dust burden by 97% and to decrease aeroallergen challenge.                                                                                                                                                               
  • The chart below is a comparison of how most bedding substrates compare with each other in many market factors.  Now that you have the information you can best choose which is best for the health of your barn.  Not just your horses, but YOU, your dogs and cats.  Breathing is not overrated.      (click chart)

How Bad is Dust; Really? Sure you want your horses breathing it?

More about Dust

Do you know how harmful dust really is? Have you ever read or researched what dust can do to both humans and horses? AIRLITE™ is designed to eliminate dust and particles that are harmful and protect both the horse and rider.

Take a look below!  We hope you find this information useful!

Kentucky Equine Research Center Archives: Small Airway Disease & Equine Respiratory Health

“During competition, the horse’s lungs move over 2,250 liters of air per minute […]even a small increase in the amounts of mucus in the airways & minor degrees of airway thickening in the airway lining will adversely affect performance”.

PENN State-College of Agricultural Sciences Agricultural Research: Riding Arena Footing Materials Selection & Management – Page 8—-Dust Management

“Most arena, stall and barn environments are plagued with dust problems. Dust causes eye and nose irritations and contributes to respiratory damage in both horse and rider. It is estimated that an idle horse inhales 16 gallons of air per minute and during strenuous exercise can inhale up to 600 gallons per minute. Minimize the amount of dust in this area should be a primary goal…”

Bay Area Equestrian Network February 2007 via SteinBeckEquine.com – Your Horse’s Health-Silicosis in Horses Veterinary Medicine with Matt Durham DVM

“Prevention of Silicosis requires limiting the amount of inhaled dust……..”

American Lung Association – Fighting for Air-Understanding Silicosis

“Silicosis is a chronic lung disease caused by breathing in tiny bits of silica dust. Silica is the second most common mineral in the earth’s crust. It is the major component of SAND, rock & mineral ores……..”

OSHA FACT Sheet-USA Governmental Agency – Crystalline Silica Exposure Health Hazard Information

“Crystalline silica has been classified as a human lung carcinogen. […] use all available work practices to control dust exposures…”

Airlite, the Healthiest Bedding for Foaling

Here is what Auburn University has to say about using Airlite for foaling.

“We used Airlite bedding exclusively for all of our foaling mares this past breeding season. Previously we had used straw or a combination of straw and shavings. We found the Airlite bedding far superior to either of these other types of bedding. The Airlite bedding did an excellent job at absorbing fluids especially around the time of foaling. The fluids associated with the birthing process can make the stall floor slippery for the foal’s first attempt to stand. The Airlite bedding did a spectacular job absorbing these fluids rapidly, thus making the stall floor safe for the foal.

Additionally, the Airlite was superior for foals who spend a lot of time laying on the bedding. It is less dusty and therefore better for young lungs, absorbs urine well, and does not cause harm to the foal’s eyes that can be a concern with standard shavings.

We were very happy with this product this year and will continue to use it for all our standard and high risk foaling mares and newborn foals.”
