Have a look at this UNO: the pregnant waiting heifer in the background of the picture. What is she doing?
Is this barn they have top beds with sand, 132 centimeter width. There are 40 animals in 29 beds, with 72 cm feeding space per cow.
Update with our suggestion
It was amazing….. she was standing on a rim of straw with her hind claws….!!!! (mini rim of straw that was spilled under the fence from straw yard)
Due to overstocking and dead end track: heifers suffer the most. Too much standing: laminitis already before calving.. PAIN. NOT GOOD. Bad start..
Very common problem…. NEVER overstock your stress-free calving line (3 weeks before till 3 weeks after calving).
Also supply 85 cm feed space per animal…
