We have been posting a lot on providing deep beds for your cows. Some of you have been asking: how do I keep the beds clean? Here we have a sneak peak at Cow Garden in Groenlo, the Netherlands. They are developing a innovative new floor concept. The urine should sink through the mattresses and a machine picks up the manure on top of them.
We don't know much more about it, but we're interested to see the results. The most important thing is that cows can rest properly in their beds, preferably for 14 hours.
What are your expectations of this new system?
