    I have used both shavings and straw. My favorite bedding in cold weather is to put down shavings and then put straw on top. The shavings do a good job of absorbing urine. Sometimes you can run into serious mastitis problems with shavings having to do with certain bacteria in the shavings. I don't know if that is true with kiln dried shavings or not.
