Our Equine Elite Bedding is produced using 100% British grown Miscanthus.
Miscanthus is the perfect crop to be used for equine bedding as its capable of absorbing up to three times its own weight in liquid.
Miscanthus is also very beneficial to wildlife as it acts as an excellent wildlife cover. The permanent crop provides shelter to numerous animals. An improved biodiversity of small mammals and insects will also provide food for wildlife.
However, what is truly awesome about Miscanthus is its ability to absorb Co2. The Miscanthus crop acts like a sink swallowing up carbon in order to grow up to 10m in height – for every tonne of Miscanthus produced it can absorb 3.42 tonnes of Co2, thus making Miscanthus a carbon negative crop to grow and process – what Co2 it absorbs outweighs any Co2 produced in the harvesting and processing of it.
So, in short not only do the features of Miscanthus make this THE best equine bedding product on the marketplace performance wise but also THE most environmentally friendly option – we are working to have zero plastic in our packaging so this can truly be THE no.1 environmentally friendly solution.

With hundreds of horses set to stable at Horse of the Year Show throughout the week in October, Grandstand Media Ltd are delighted to announce IEC Equine Solutions as the new Official Bedding Supplier for the Show. Read the full story here.
The proceeds from IEC’s annual charity clay shoot have been presented to the Midlands Air Ambulance and a video with highlights from the day is now available to watch on our new IEC Solutions YouTube channel.
The 2016 annual poultry industry charity clay shoot, held by IEC, raised £1,500 for the Midlands Air Ambulance and provided visitors with the unique opportunity to explore the company’s brand new poultry site, prior to opening.
Yet again, the Pig & Poultry Fair on 10th & 11th May proved to be a great success for IEC. Not only did we get to catch up with many existing customers at this super event held at Stoneleigh Park, but we also got to meet some new faces. Much conversation was had about Combined Heat & Power (CHP), explaining it and the numbers, plus the usual levels of interest in biomass heating and our poultry bedding product ‘Softlay’. Thanks to all those who called in to the stand for a drink and cake – it was great to see you!
Charlie Simpson, one of our most loyal Sotflay bedding customers, has become the biggest ever chicken farmer to join Aviagen’s Ross 400 Club, which recognises top performance. With a chick placement of almost 541,500 birds, this is an exceptional achievement.
