We have very recently covered why it is important to provide your cows with comfy and sufficient bedding. So, we thought why not do the same for your horses. Let’s look at some of main advantages of high quality horse bedding in Derbyshire. You would make sure that your bedding is clean and comfy wouldn’t you? So why should this be any different for horses? Horses don’t naturally need soft and comfy bedding, however, at PH Winterton being a provider of high quality horse shavings in Staffordshire we argue that ensuring you have adequate equine bedding is of the utmost importance. So we would like to highlight a few reasons why you should pay particular attention to your horse’s sleeping arrangements. Genuine Comfort We start off with arguably the most obvious reason to provide your horses with high quality bedding, for their comfort. Shavings in particular act as a barrier protecting your horse from the cold hard floor when they are lying down. Accompanying this is the fact that your horse is a lot more likely to lie down when they have comfortable and clean bedding available. Encouragement is key in this regard. If your horse has been on their hooves all day they still might lie down to get their recommended shut ye and get their recommended shut eye. This rings especially true if the bedding looks dirty or uncomfortable. As any dedicated horse owner will tell you, you do not want a tired and unhappy horse.

This is especially true during the winter months when the UK can see an over abundance of rain and storms. Luckily, horse shavings can absorb a lot of...Read Moreabout Do You Need Horse Bedding in Derbyshire?
Biomass fuel in Staffordshire promises to be very important in 2022. Back in 2016, the UK government announced the new green deal in a plan to drastically reduce the UK’s carbon footprint towards a more general push to be environmentally aware. Accompanying this is the four year plan announced by Staffordshire county council in late 2021. The plan details a number of measures we can take to reduce carbon emissions and tackle the ever increasing threat of climate change. A key goal of the aforementioned plan is to have a net 0 carbon emissions by 2025. Part of the plan includes transferring all council owned cars to electric models and increasing the awareness of tree planting. This plan underpins the general push to be more environmentally friendly in the county. At PH Winterton, we would like to highlight a very effective way of reducing our carbon footprint in Staffordshire, this being the use of biomass fuel. We are proud to be on the approved biomass fuel supplier’s list from the UK government. We would like to take this opportunity to highlight a few key features of why biomass fuel is important and how it can help reduce carbon emissions.

It is reported that biomass fuel produces 93% more reusable energy compared to fossil fuel. Furthermore, on a slightly separate note but no less relevant, biodiesel reduces GHGs by 41% compared to typical diesel. We believe these facts are sufficient to showcase that bioenergy is a fantastic alternative to traditional fuel types.
