Just make sure sawdust or shavings is cost effective and readily available .

The real value to soil is the added organic matter which increases water holding capacity and the carbon which helps to hold nitrogen. But straw will have both of those. It is easier to clean sawdust out of a barn than it is straw. <p>Dave<br>
