How much do you pay per stall, per month, for bedding?
Most people don’t know, because they buy in bulk and add bedding throughout the month. Those extra bags are costly! One racehorse trainer told us she is paying about $100 per month, per stall, for straw. With shavings, pellets and sawdust, you are throwing money away with every forkful!
Wood shavings ??? Sawdust ??? Straw…??? Pine pellets: $7/bag. The manufacturer recommends seven bags for initial bedding. Here is the cost: Week 1: 7 bags @ $7/bag = $49 Week 2: add 1-2 bags Week 3: add 1-2 bags Week 4: add 1-2 bags Monthly cost: $70 TO $91
Coco Bedding: $25/bale Initial bedding: Depending on size of stall: For a 12 x 12 stall, 2-3 bales; For a 14 x 16 stall, 3-4 bales)
Week 1: $50-$75 Week 2: $0 Week 3 $0 Week 4 $0
Monthly cost:$50 to $75.
Instead of asking the price per bale, figure your cost for the month. Coco Bedding will save you money! In one study, where the horses were turned out all day, the bedding lasted for 8 full weeks! Cost was less than $40 per month!!!
