The FAN Green Bedding Separator produces fresh bedding material from the raw material slurry in constant quality directly on your farm daily. Long term studies show that, if the material is handled correctly and has a dry matter content of over 34% in the Green Bedding produced, there is no increased risk of mastitis, compared to other bedding materials.
Also the wellbeing of the animals is positively influenced when using Green Bedding material. The cows accept the fluffy, soft material and prefer it, for example, to sand or rubber mats. Moisture retention is higher than with straw, dust development is lower, joint injuries and skin grazes are minimized and the cows are very clean. This results in longer rest times and consequently in increased milk production.
The use of Green BeddingTM offers, compared to conventional bedding material, like straw and sawdust, many economic benefits. Besides that the purchase of bedding material is no longer necessary, no imported nutrients or unknown germs get to the farm. There is not much storage space needed, as the bedding material is freshly produced daily. After the separation the slurry is thinner, can be spread more easily and is better absorbed by the ground and the total amount of slurry is being reduced.

Since 2015, a FAN Green Bedding separator PSS 3.3-780 has been responsible for the production of organic bedding material at Tenuta Marinona in Piedmont, Italy. The separator is fed by a small biogas plant (100 kW), which is fed exclusively with liquid manure. The solids are added to the cubicles once a week as bedding. Owner Angelo Invernizzi attaches particular importance to the well-being of his cows, which he carefully monitors using special software, and swears by the farm's own bedding material: "For us, there is nothing better than self-produced bedding. Green bedding has even been proven to have a positive effect on our farm on the cell numbers."
