Know Your Starting Direction – The approach you take to the first fence will often set the pace for the rest of the course.

Keep Your Horse Healthy With Quality Equine Bedding

By on Jul 8, 2019 in Blog, Equine Bedding |

We don’t have to tell you how important it is to keep stalls in top condition for horses. And this is particularly true when it comes to equine bedding. But there’s so much information flying around in regards to the do’s and don’ts of equine care.  How can you be sure you’re doing the right thing for your horse? In this blog post, we’re going to look at ways you can keep your horse comfortable and healthy. And give you a rundown of the best equine bedding available in Staffordshire, Cheshire and Nottingham and beyond. Air Quality and Equine Bedding When it comes to air quality in stables, feed and bedding are the main sources of airborne dust. And this dust can be made up of a whole variety of matter including bacteria, faeces, and viruses. While there is no way to totally eliminate this from stables entirely, there are a number of things you can do to manage the amounts. This is crucial, especially for horses who may be suffering from respiratory disorders, as symptoms of these diseases can be exacerbated by the inhalation of airborne dust. The main way to control the levels of dust in your stable is through proper ventilation. Ensuring air can flow in and out of stalls is vital to maintaining a healthy environment for your horses. Ventilation comes from sidewall openings, doors and windows. So check these remain unobstructed, particularly during the summer months. Aside from ventilation, another aspect to consider is the dust content of your equine bedding. Airborne dust levels are at their highest while mucking out your stables. So a good place to start in keeping your horse healthy is by removing them from the stall during cleaning. What’s more, high-quality bedding, such as the Cheshire Choice Equine Bedding from P.H.Winterton & Son, will also reduce the risk of dust problems. High-Quality Equine Bedding From P.H. Winterton & Son At P.H. Winterton & Son, we offer quality controlled horse bedding to our customers in Staffordshire and beyond.

Why Farmers Are Being Urged To Use Biomass Fuel

Why Farmers Are Being Urged To Use Biomass Fuel

By on Jul 3, 2019 in Biomass fuel |

Increasingly, farmers and other agricultural businesses are being encouraged to use biomass fuel to create heat or power. What’s more, the government is focusing now more than ever on Renewable Heat Incentives and other Eco-friendly initiatives. As a result, it really is the time to consider using an environmentally friendly and efficient source of power.  P.H. Winterton & Son is a proud champion of renewable energy in Nottinghamshire, Cheshire, Staffordshire and beyond. But what exactly is biomass fuel, and why should you consider using it for your business? Biomass Fuel As A Renewable Energy Source Biomass fuel is simply natural material derived from living, or recently living, plants. Common types of biomass fuel include: Logs Pellets Woodworking Offcuts Grains Bales Animal waste Burning biomass fuels still creates carbon dioxide. However, the plant only releases the same amount of carbon dioxide as when it was living. Consequently, biomass fuel is a renewable and sustainable source of energy.  Grade A Wood Residue From P.H. Winterton Across Staffordshire, Cheshire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, P.H. Winterton offers biomass fuel in the form of wood residue. Through our sawmill waste collection service, we have access to a Grade A renewable energy source. This wood residue is both uniform in size and free from harmful contaminants, like metal. So it burns at a steady rate and works to reduce emissions of harmful gases and carbon dioxide. Not only is this method of generating heat and power environmentally friendly, it’s also good for your bank account! Due to its low cost and efficiency, using it for heating and electricity can save you money. What’s more, it is fantastic as animal bedding! Making it a multi-functional resource that’s good for the environment, and great for your business.   Find Out More Today We are a family run business, and we pride ourselves on our supply of biomass fuels across the Midlands and beyond.
