Breeder's Choice woodshavings are a high-grade product which is suitable for use as a bedding litter in horse stables, chicken nests and sheds, calf sheds and various other animal enclosures.
We currently produce two different size bales. Our standard bale weighs 14kg and provides approximately 0.2 cubic metres of volume when uncompressed. We also offer a larger 'wool pack' type bale, which provides approximately 1.2 cubic metres of uncompressed volume.
The benefits of our baled woodshavings are:
Our shavings have been screened to remove harmful dusts and reduce the incidence of reactive airway disease in animals. Using a purpose built ‘trommel’ screen, we are able to remove a higher proportion of the sawdust and ensure we are producing a superior quality product.
The woodshavings are a by-product from the timber milling process and have been kiln dried to achieve a moisture content of between 8% and 12%.
The shavings are all natural and free of any chemical additives.
We use our own trucks and trailers to transport the raw product. Our trailers are only used for transporting our shavings, which reduces the risk of contaminants in our shavings.
Breeder's Choice Woodshavings is a family owned business that has been operating in Colac (Victoria) since 1994. Colac is located in the western district of Victoria, on the edge of the Otways, which is one of the largest pine plantations in Australia.
The sole business activity of Breeder's Choice is the packaging and sale of kiln-dried pine woodshavings. All shavings go through a screening process to remover the smaller flakes and sawdust, thus providing a high-grade product and ensuring very good absorbency.
As our main customers are in the poultry, equine and cattle industries, it is imperative that our shavings are clean, hygienic, and come from only kiln dried radiata pine, with a moisture content of between 8% and 12%.
We have supplied our packaged shavings into every state of Australia. Please search the 'stockists' section of our website to find a seller of Breeder's Choice Woodshavings in your area.
