Better bedding for game birds

Stockmax pine shavings are an ideal multi-purpose bedding solution for game rearers. Made using 100% pine timber, sourced from renewable forestry in the UK, Stockmax shavings benefit from pine’s unique capacity to eliminate harmful bacteria such as E. Coli and E. faecium that can seriously damage or kill young chicks in the earliest stages of their lives.

Carrying NOPS accreditation, game rearers can be confident knowing there are no contaminants which could be harmful to their stock. Designed to help reduce antibiotic use, Stockmax pine shavings are also dried to sterilising temperatures to ensure a clean and hygienic product and eliminate cross contamination.

What our customers say…

“We have been raising 100,000 chame chicks per year on Stockmax for a number of years now and we have found it to be an excellent bedding. We keep our chicks on it for eight weeks and it creates the ideal conditions for their healthy development – it is dust extracted, very comfortable and the chicks don’t ingest the larger shavings. It also lasts a long time in good condition in the pens. We have also found that it composts well after use too.”
