Better Livestock Bedding

Frontier Fibers provides highly absorbent, lime-injected, fiber-based bedding for dairy, livestock and equestrian markets. Our bedding is mixed with a special liming agent that combats bacteria while it’s used and keeps a pH between 11.5 and 12.5. Because we inject lime into our product, there is no need for additional liming agent in your beds or stalls. Our 100% biodegradable fiber bedding is more absorbent than sawdust and straw, and absorbs ammonia, urine and leaked milk to eliminate seepage. Using our bedding ensures your cows a high degree of comfort in a setting safe from bacteria. Our raw material is rigorously tested for bacteria counts and is free of clay, which can get caught in hooves and harvest bacteria.

KILN-DRIED PRODUCT BENEFITS

Frontier Fibers recently invested in a 7 million BTU, triple pass drying system that offers a new and improved fiber mix. The fiber is superheated to endure temperatures of over 1200°F for over five minutes, eliminating pathogenic harvesting environments and moisture. Putting the bedding through this triple pass drum drying system produces a bedding that fights bacteria and reduces mastitis. Our superheated fiber is safer and more comfortable for your livestock.

How It’s Made

Raw material for Frontier Fibers bedding is procured from cardboard paper mills throughout the Northeast, unlike other beddings that are procured from waste transfer stations. This provides for a consistent and reliable supply. Reliability is one of our core strengths; our product comes from three paper mills that produce between 150-200 tons of fiber per day. Our product also goes through a refining process that fluffs the bedding to increase animal comfort. Frontier Fibers guarantees more volume, at a better price, and a better product than our competitors.
