Bedding is needed in poultry houses after the removal of poultry litter. Rice hulls are trucked by Morgan Bulk Inc. from regional rice growers.
As a byproduct, rice hulls are used by the poultry industry as a nice cushion in broiler and hen houses. They absorb moisture from the waste of the chickens and with a cleaner house, chickens are dressed more efficiently.
Poultry litter is a cost effective way to provide soil amendment. With its time released effect, it provides a longer lasting benefit than most commercial sprays. Likewise, it is more friendly to the environment.
The slow release of nitrogen and phosphate improves soil quality, and as an organic product, poultry litter is ideal for crop growers and cattle grazed pastures.
