MuckMeister launches Bedding Blocker

New product is designed to keep bedding in stalls and mud out

MuckMeister Enterprises LLC has developed a first-of-its-kind innovation to keep animal bedding in stalls and mud out, safely and effectively.

“The Bedding Blocker was created out of frustration,” explains April Schiel, who designed and developed the product for the company. “I was watching my own horses drag bedding out of their stalls and bring mud in. I felt like I was forever cleaning stalls and adding expensive bedding! Something had to be made to help solve this problem. I knew I wasn’t the only person having these issues, so I got to work!”

According to Schiel, the Bedding Blocker solves the dilemma of dangerous threshold barriers, trip hazards and ineffective methods of preventing bedding loss. The design is low profile, ergonomic and easy to install. 

Durable and versatile

As for durability, Schiel states, “With proper installation and care, the Bedding Blocker is designed to have years of life. When a Bedding Blocker starts to show wear, it can be repurposed as a scratching post or bird deterrent. “

The Bedding Blocker is made for farms and ranches of all sizes, where it is commonly installed on exterior thresholds. “Keeping bedding from mixing with the outside environment decreases mud outside of stalls as well,” Schiel notes. “Excessive mud is damaging to animal hooves. This is a versatile, multi-functional product that promises to save the small-town rancher and large show barn alike time and money.”
