Coco Dry

COCONUT fiber litter for modern zootechnics

Keep your animals always dry

COCO DRY® is a revolutionary litter that is composed solely of plant material derived from processing the coconut palm tree for food use. The manufacturing process in based on the separation of filamentary fractions from the coconut shell which are then subsequently dedusted to maximize the absorbent capacities. No other organic materials (e.g. peat) are added and the entire procedure undergoes strict controls to make sure it is pest-free. The advantages derived from the usage of COCO DRY®, as an alternative to traditional litters, are apparent in any type of breeding farm. Owing to the exceptionally high capacity to absorb liquids (up to 8-9 times in weight), the litter always stays soft and perfectly dry, creating ideal conditions for animals. Furthermore, compared to conventionally used materials, it reduces bad odors and the use of labor. The product is easy to spread and allows for even layers to be created very quickly. The litter is also easier to maintain. Solid excrement remains well separated and is easily removed.

COCO DRY® is a product that has been studied to improve breeding farm production performances. Its formula is created by adding a percentage of soft filamentary fiber to fine coconut pith, obtaining a mixture with exceptional absorbent capacity, several times greater than that of straw or chips. The applicative effect is the creation of dry layers which improve animal well-being both directly and indirectly, reducing ammonium emissions and improving the quality of breathed air. Use of the product significantly reduces the quantity of manure produced and costs of managing the breeding farm.
