Cleaner, more comfortable cows…just good old fashioned stockmanship

Increasing numbers of farmers who really care about cow comfort and cleanliness are turning away from the various shortcomings of straw, sawdust, shavings, sand and recycled manure solids for cubicle bedding.

These farmers aren’t doing this because it’s fashionable, or an industry expert said they should, or even some new university research has been published. They’re doing it because they know – deep down in their stockmanship subconscious – that it’s simply the right thing for their cows.

It honours an old fashioned rule that will always hold true, through good and hard times alike: You look after your cows, and they’ll look after you.

A significant turning point appears to have been the launch in early 2016 of Envirobed Premium, the combination of dried paper crumb and premium quality sawdust.

These two materials create the closest so far to the perfect bedding material for today’s cow housing. It is ultra-high absorbency – 5x more than sawdust, 10x more than straw – mopping up urine and leaked milk to keep udders and teats clean.

Rather than being dragged into the slurry passage, which is a commonplace observation by farmers about wood shavings or sawdust, it stays where it’s put on cubicle beds. Together with extra fluffiness created by the sawdust, this also means the material goes further than either dried paper crumb or sawdust on their own.

Costing as little as 9-10 pence per cow, typical daily usage is about two litres per cubicle.

To match growing demand, new manufacturing facilities are being developed in a number of rural locations – including some farms – around the country, one aim being to keep transport costs as low as possible. The drying techniques are designed to create just the right combination of physical properties: Absorbency, cow comfort and on-cubicle retention.

What farmers say about EnviroBed

“We have used EnviroBed for many years and find its high absorbency and staying where it’s put on cubicle beds are vital to maintaining low mastitis incidence and somatic cell counts.”

– John Yeoman, Y Farms, Somerset​

 

“I switched to Premium Blend after using EnviroBed for four years and it is the best thing you’ve done for our pockets! Each load is lasting far longer – we used to use 2 buckets per passage and now we’re only using 1 for the same coverage. Like EnviroBed, it’s comfortable for the cows, helps keep mastitis at bay and doesn’t blow about.”

– Craig Bentley, The Gables, Thirsk

 

“Premium Blend is the best bedding I’ve used for a long time. The cows like it, it stays on the beds and it’s lasting far longer than other bedding products I’ve used before.”

– Charles Morley, New House Farm, Derbyshire

 

“We put fresh EnviroBed on the cubicles three times a week. Cows are not only very comfortable on the bedding but they are much healthier. I’m sure the bedding contributes towards our low levels of mastitis.”

– Richard Harrison, Hyndford Well, Peeblesshire

 

At Oxclose farm, Northallerton, animal comfort and cleanliness are paramount in pursuit of high performance and excellent udder health for farmer Neil Bellerby. Neil says: “EnviroBed’s high absorbency and cushion consistency made a significant contribution. I have recently switched to Premium blend and you can tell that you’re getting more for your money. Thanks to the bigger volume it works out cheaper overall.

– Neil Bellerby, Oxclose Farm, North Allerton
