The more comfortable cows' beds are, the more cows are lying down. More resting time means a higher milk production: you gain 1 liter per cow per day for each extra hour your cows rest!
In this video, we show you a barn where the cow beds can be improved.
Think about the advice you would give this farmer: What would you do?
Now take a moment to think about your own cow beds.
- How deep and soft are your beds?
- How comfortable are your cows?
- Can you do anything to make them rest more?
Please share your thoughts in the comments :). Thanks!
