Straw and Bedding

  1. All bedding materials must come from named sources or agree point 2 with agent.
  2. All straw must be obtained from fields where no pig manure has been spread, except from the recipient unit only.
  3. Straw should be delivered to the unit in trucks not used to transport pigs.
  4. All straw should be stored on 10 cm of sand covered with a polythene sheet to reduce rodent infestation. Place rodenticide at the base of the straw in drain pipes and replenish as necessary.
  5. All moldy or damp bedding must be carefully judged whether it is suitable for use, if necessary it may be better to dispose of the straw, consult the practice for advice.
  6. Note: moldy straw can be a hazard to human health and if the straw is dusty face masks should be worn.
