Comfortable cubicles add to cow health

Comfortable cubicles add to cow health

Too little comfort

Many cubicles offer too little comfort, as a result the cow does not lay down enough. This has direct effect on the health of the cow. A cow is supposed to lay down at least 14 hours a day, when a cow is standing too long or too many hours a day the cow will get problems with its hoof as a result. Also a cubicle with wrong bedding has bald and swollen heels as a result.

Biobedding is the solution

Practice proves that cows in a Biobedding cow shed have better udder health and a lower cell number. Also problems with Mastitis belong to the past with a Biobedding cow shed. Summarized, Biobedding improves cow healt.
