Better bedding for healthier animals

Stockmax 100% pine shavings are an ideal multi-purpose bedding solution for Farmers, Smallholders, Poultry keepers, Gamekeepers, Vets and Zoos responsible for the care of vulnerable animals.

Science has demonstrated that pine has a unique capacity to eliminate harmful bacteria such as E. Coli and E. faecium that can seriously damage or kill young animals in the earliest stages of their lives.

Stockmax offers the natural protection of pine in a bedding that helps save lives, reduce labour and cut antibiotic use in lambing, game chick and poultry pens, and help provide a warm, dry, comfortable and hygienic bed for any animals, large or small, that are kept or kennelled indoors.


Who Uses Stockmax?

We’ve been researching, developing and making our pine shavings bedding for well over twenty years. Our objective when we started was to make the best possible bedding for stabled horses. But in recent years, experienced animal carers have discovered that the benefits that make our shavings the brand leader for horses also make them the ideal bedding for many other animals, large and small.


Many sheep farmers who have switched to Stockmax Shavings when lambing inside report dramatic reductions in lamb deaths.

Game Chicks

A growing number of game farmers, rearers and gamekeepers are using our shavings to improve their results.

Working Dogs

Gun dogs, sheepdogs and hounds, all benefit from a dry, comfortable, hygienic bed to keep them in the best of health.


Many poultry keepers are already telling us our shavings work for their hens and chicks, ducks, turkeys and guinea fowl.


Research in the US suggests that pine shavings may help keep dairy cows cleaner and more hygienic, and reduce mastitis.

Pets and Parrots

And yes, they work for all much-loved pets from rabbits to snakes and reptiles, parrots and birds of prey.
