Caviera’s product range has been created to provide professional and amateur horse owners with a high performing, dust extracted, highly absorbent and fast rotting bedding. After a lot of research before we began production, listening carefully to veterinary experts, equestrian professionals and our customers who expressed that high levels of dust was the biggest problem with some shavings and other traditional types of bedding. Taking all this into consideration we built our processing plant around this core idea of dust extraction. This along with with the rigorous quality control over our straw products and baling methods makes our bedding unique and offers the customer a superior, cost effective and sustainable horse bedding.
Caviera has been established by A.N.Walker & Son due to the demand for our Straw and Hay over the years and the constant requests from our customers to produce bedding for their animals.
Caviera is run by Nick and Tony Walker and we personally oversee every stage of production from start to finish. We plant the crop, care for it throughout the year and then harvest it. Once harvested we then bale the crop and store it inside one of our sheds ready to be then taken out and processed.
When we bale our crops we make sure that it is at the optimal moisture content by testing it continuously so that no harmful mould or spores can grow which can lead to high levels of microtoxins which can cause respiratory problems.
We can also trace each bale to the field it came from knowing when and how it was baled and compare it to previous years and other surrounding crops taking into account weather conditions throughout the year. This enables us to monitor our crop production and maximise yields and quality.
