Talon ABM is super absorbent: The product is manufactured from 100% all-natural Northwest White Pine wood and has approximately 4% starting moisture content. Compared to regular wood shavings, it will absorb more moisture and greatly suppress ammonia. It requires no additives, is bio-degradable, and reduces the problem of waste bedding material.
Talon ABM is safe for all animals: Equines, iguanas, rodents, cats, dogs, cattle, llamas, sheep, goats and birds have used the Talon ABM with positive results in each situation.
Talon ABM is good for the environment: Talon ABM is a by-product, which means no trees have been cut down during the manufacturing process. The bedding breaks down very quickly and is compostable. When the product is removed from the stalls it can be placed right on fields.
Talon ABM requires less upkeep: Typically you can wait 3-5 weeks without adding any additional bedding to a 12 x 12 stall. By topping up with Talon ABM bedding as a refresher when removing soiled areas, the length of time bedding can remain in the stall will improve.
Talon ABM is easy to clean: Pick your stalls daily, removing any solids. Scrape the wet areas down to the floor, to let the air get into the urinated spots. Bring the dry Talon ABM in from the edges to wet the areas to equalize moisture. We recommend removing wet areas when it clumps or it does not break up readily on your dumpling fork. If you see the product change to a red color, this signifies a heavily saturated spot and should be removed.
