General characteristics

  • High hygiene – Lectum animal bedding is produced from selected cereal straw (mostly wheat straw). It is thermally processed to the temperature above 90oC. Due to this process, it contains only traces of mould and very few microorganisms. Heat treatment in a high temperature causes that the colour of the bedding is slightly darker, but the most important is the safety of horses! absorbency
  • Higher absorbency prevents from soaking and forming crust. To give an example: 100kg sawdust absorbs about 180kg of water, wheat straw (cut) about 250kg of water and Lectum at least 370kg of water. The high absorbency is achieved due to straw extrusion, which changes its structure so that the water is absorbed through the ends of long fibers rather than their whole surface. Softness and resilience – prevents the animals from injuries.
  • Lack of dust – dust triggers respiratory infections. Lectum is dedusted during its production and shredding, which minimizes the risk of respiratory infections in animals.
