Premium Corn Cob Laboratory Animal Bedding

We at Shepherd Specialty Papers are pleased to offer our own range of corn cob bedding that passes our strict quality and consistency standards. Corn cob bedding has an extensive
following in the Laboratory Research Industry and we are excited to offer the highest quality corn cob bedding available today.

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. Please contact us for our most recent laboratory analysis.

Excellent Absorbency:

Lower moisture content means Shepherd's™ Cob will
absorb more liquid by volume than other bedding materials

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

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

Available in Several Forms:
Shepherd's™ Cob is available in our standard 1/4" and 1/8" grades in 40 pound autoclavable bags as well as bulk sacks. We also offer both grades irradiated in 40 pound bags and bulk sacks.
