Cow comfort has a direct influence on the longevity and milk production of your dairy cows. While it is important that cows have access to quality feed, water and ventilation, they must also have sound footing and a clean, durable resting surface.
When cows are able to lie down and rest, blood circulation to the udder rises by almost thirty percent. Hooves can dry and rest while other cows take advantage of more free space.
Quality cow mats reduce common health conditions including sore hooves, breast inflammation, bruised necks and swollen hocks. Keeping cows comfortable reduces health risks and boosts productivity over a longer lifespan.
