Cow comfort pays well
Cow comfort is not only morally sound and good for welfare, it is also profitable.
- For each extra hour a cow spends lying down, she will produce 1.6 litres of milk
- No extra feed is needed
- Extra milk comes from energy saved by lying down rather than standing
So with the right size and design of cubicles, with sound bases and dry, absorbent bedding, your cows will lie down for 12 hours instead of 10 – this can be expected to give 3.2 litres/day more milk.
