A Brief History ...

In the mid 1970's Mr. Ray England of National United Enterprises contacted Monsanto seeking a volume discount on their AstroTurf® doormats.

It seems Fred had been using these doormats as an alternative to wood shavings as a nest pad, and soon a new market was born.

Fred became the first distributor of AstroTurf® Poultry Nesting Pads to a growing industry. Subsequently, new innovative product modifications were made and the original gray pad color was independently tested.

Tests proved that our patented gray color was preferred by hens over other colors... a real Chick Magnet!

AstroTurf® Poultry Nesting Pads are composed of polyethelyne resins in a grass-like configuration. As chickens have gotten bigger and stronger, so have our nest pads.

Now, after more than two years of development, our engineering team is making the best even better with a breakthrough in poultry pad design - the new AstroTurf® NXT, Version 5.2, with "Ten Points of New Technology".
