The devil is in the detail...if you make life easy for the cow, she will make life easy for you. Have al ook at these great pictures by Austrian CowSignals® Master trainer Stefan Minichshofer.
What do you see? An example of an ideal stress-free calving line. Maximum access to food and rest, easy access to water, maximum ventilation: no walls, open on all sides. Easy access with your tractor to put straw in daily and take manure out every 6 weeks.
Give cows what they need. A stress-free calving line for at least 14 days before till 2-14 days after calving! Amazingly effective…No more sick cows.
