Expert opinion on using product BIO LIT HORSE stable bedding
This expert opinion is based upon hooves condition of Holsteiner’s mare Rassante before and after placing „BIO LIT“ into her stable box. The mare lives in an English box with concrete floor surface covered with straw bedding. During my first visit I noticed mostly on hind hooves the White line Disease which looks something like this:
I pointed out on unsustainability of such a condition and also warned that condition can get even worse. I trimmed the hooves and removed all the necrotic parts of infected hoof wall.
During my next visit, because of the fact the bedding type was still the same (straw), I found advanced White Line Disease. Hooves had very strong odor of urine and manure and were very soft and moist. I trimmed the hooves removing significant parts of infected hoof wall. The hooves looked something like this:
At that moment, the stable manager decided to replace straw bedding with BIO LIT HORSE bedding. During my next visit ,so three weeks after start of using BIO LIT HORSE bedding I noticed tremendous improvement of hooves condition. I haven’t found any sign of new infected and necrotic tissue. The frog was healthy, solid, and compact. In collateral grooves as well as in central sulcus of the frog I found no trace of infection. The white line had normal yellowish color all the length long. The surfaces around bars, heel buttresses and the seat-of-corn was clean and sound. I haven’t noticed any new sign of pathological changes on the sole. Hoof wall started to show the sign of recovery and healthy growth. Hooves were completely odorless and dry.
Based on the information presented, I could conclude that BIO LIT prepossesses horny tissues, its healthy growth and development. It also eliminates extremely negative influence of urine and manure to sensitive hoof structures and tissues. It significantly decrease the dampness in the horse boxes what is very important for hooves health, respiratory system health as well as overall soundness of the horse.

Mare after the treatment on one of the first trainings:
My name is Sabina Knezevic, I am Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. My field of interest is equine medicine. I have graduated from Faculty od Veterinary Medicine in Belgrade – Serbia, continued my proffessional education at Cambridge veterinary School, also Austria and Italy. I am author of several scientific papers concerning equine medicine. At the moment I am the only producer of equine milk in Serbia, Bosnia, Montenegro and Croatia. Mares milk is a natural cure for several deseases in children and adults, such as chronic bronchitis, pneumonia, psoriasis, eczema.
Mares milk is also used in treatment of cancer patients, because of lactoferrin from equine milk that boosts immune system and also have negative influences on growth of cancer cells. These are many papers written on this topic. There is offcource much research yet to be done. To preserve lactoferrin which is glucoprotein, sensitive to temperature higher than 56 C, we need very high hygiene standards in our production, because this milk is consumed raw, only freezed. In this task , special bedding for horses“ BIO LIT HORSE ® by BIO DEVELOPMENT” that we use, is invaluable for us, because of it s special antimicrobial properties. I am considering using royal jelly and bee glue with equine milk in our new health products. Sabina Knezevic, DVM www.kobilje-mleko.com e mail: email@example.com tel +381628375939 +38268126464
Instructions for use
BEDDING QUANTITY relationship between horse weight / square meter.
If animal is treated with antibiotics,refresh bedding every day by adding and mixing with urinized spot, 2kg of fresh BIO LIT HORSE.
In case of absence of horse in stall, bedding will become too dry. Just sprinkle some water and it will be active again.
ATENTION:To check up maintaining, scratch with shovel till the bottom of the floor. If the bedding is well maintained, should easily slip trough. If it stuck on wetness or if there are big pieces stuck together, it means that is not well maintaned. Be aware for beding under the water feeder. If necessary, add more bedding when you see that is getting saturized.
How to make compost?
Modern, methodical composting ,is a multi-step, closely monitored process, with measured inputs of water, air, and carbon- nitrogen-rich materials. COMPOST made from BIO LIT HORSE BEDDING is very ease to get, very nutritive and practical for use.
After the use in the stables as a bedding, after mucking-out, this stable waste is deposed on compost pile, where droppings from previous maintaining of box were already deposed. The pile suppose to be up to one meter high. Depose mucked-out stable waste on the same , designated place, where the droping already is. To reach the best performance of the BIO LIT HORSE bedding turn it over and mix with previous deposed droppings. Occasionally turn over in order to aerize it. Try to keep humidity around 60% during the early stages of the process. So if it is dry, pour some water. Also if it is exposed on the bright sunny light cover with tarpaulen foil in order to prevent evaporation. After three to four months it becomes high quality compost. Process depends of outer temeprature and humidity. For a longer period of low temperatures (0º C), degradation processes in compost are temporarily stopped, except inside, and will take longer time to be completely ready. In case the pile is higher or because of outer conditions, pile should be turned over more frequently.It is highly recomended for agricultural purposes because of it’s high nutritioned values, rich of micro and macro elements.
The bedding is packed in 20 kg paper bag, 50 bags per pallet.
