I, due to my setup, use the leftover hay, what they threw on the ground and trampled, as bedding. Helps a bit.
I tried watering it, makes a mess.
Not sure, but the dust treatment they use for dirt roads here looks like it has some kind of oil in it...maybe try to mix oil and water and spray with that? I'd use some cooking oil, not engine oil
Let me know if it works, should you try Posted via Mobile Device
I have the same issue... we filled the holes in our stalls this past spring and packed the dirt down really good, but I'm assuming it was a very fine dirt, because now our stalls are just a huge dusty mess! We water them down daily, and have even tried mixing a little peet moss in with the dirt (thinking that maybe the water would be soaked up by the peet moss a little bit), but they are still sooo dusty. Any suggestions? Wondering if we put more dirt in there that was not so fine it would cut down on the dust?
I know of using clay packed really solid on the floor and then a good footing of shavings....the wet clay drys up a bit but doesn't cause as much dust as dirt....also you could fit rubber mats over the dirt floors, I've seen that done too
