Laboratory Animal Bedding Material
with the Added Value of Enrichment for Nesting

The animals transform the mini-rolls into a soft nesting material combined with Shepherd's™ Cob.

Eliminate the additional cost for adding nesting materials to the cage. Shepherd's™ Cob + PLUS™ combines both bedding and nesting materials all in one. Mini-rolls of multi-layered virgin paper cut into short lengths are added to give the animals nesting material which enhances their
nest building instincts.

This is a two for one advantage, you get all the benefits of the Industry’s leading
premium laboratory animal bedding material - PLUS Enrichment.

• Superior Sanitation: Shepherd's™ Cob is dried in our driers to a lower moisture content than any other cob bedding material on the market. Our target moisture content during manufacturing is
5% by weight while other manufacturers dry their product to 8 to 10%. Lower moisture content
means our processing more effectively kills bacteria, yeast, mold and coliforms.

• Excellent Absorbency: Lower moisture content means Shepherd's™ Cob
will absorb more liquid by volume than other similar bedding materials.

• Exceptional Ammonia Control: Corn cob bedding has been shown in
several studies to control ammonia inmicro-isolation caging better than
wood and some recycled paper bedding materials.

• Consistent Material: Shepherd's™ Cob + PLUS is made from 100% natural
corn cob with all foreign matter removed. It is biodegradable and easily

• Available in Several Forms: Shepherd's™ Cob is available in our
standard 1/4" and 1/8" grades in 35 pound autoclavable bags as well
as bulk sacks. We also offer both grades irradiated in 35 pound
bags and bulk sacks.
