These biodegradable, lightweight mats are made from corn stalks and wood chips. They are designed to be used for one farrowing (10–19 days) and then discarded to a composting pile. These mats can also be used as an excellent source of feedback material for your gilts and gestating sows.
The Compost-A-Mat™ is made from at least 50% corn stalks that are heated to more than 375° F, providing a pig pathogen-free mat for your piglets to lie on. One mat is designed to provide laying room between two crates.

- One mat per two crates
Guides for Using Compost-A-Mat™
- Place one mat under pen divider and pull to back of crate
- Center the heat lamp over the mat
- Adjust heat lamp to keep mat at 90°F
- Ensure that sows or gilts cannot reach the mat or they could chew on it and decrease the life of the mat
- Place mats for gilts and P1's just prior to farrowing to prevent chewing
- Mats can be used alone or can be placed over the top of another mat, especially for scouring piglets
- Mats last 7–21 days
- Healthy pigs are more active and the mat will last approximately 7–10 days (a new mat is not necessary after that)
- Challenged Pigs may have mats that last up to 21 days as they are not as active
Disposal: After use, please dispose of properly.
- Used mats are an excellent source of feedback material when torn into small, hand-sized pieces and mixed into your feedback material
- Old, used mats are biodegradable and may be added to your compost pile

These are great mats. Fit the crate nicely and absorb and radiate a little heat when under a lamp. Piglets like them and they are heartier than you might think. I'll never use anything else.
