How to use Proteq Equine Bedding:
Initial Stable Setup: Using Proteq Equine Bedding is easy and takes only about 30 minutes and it’s ready for use. Just follow these simple steps.
Place approximately 16 bags of pellet bedding in a clean 4m x 4m stable with a cement or dirt floor. For rubber flooring you can set up a patch with approximately 6 bags.
Line up the bags along the wall, rip one corner open and follow along the seam. Add 9 litres of water per bag or fill bag with the hose until water drips out of the upper air holes. This will cause the pellets to activate (swell and fluff up).
After 20 minutes, the pellets will have absorbed all the water and expanded to around 3 times there original size. (Note: some pellets will not have broken down and this is normal)
Empty the pellets out of the bags onto the floor. The bed will transform to a soft, fluffy but dense surface.
