Wynnstay Agriculture’s range of cubicles are quick and easy to install, we offer products to support herd comfort. Milk production is directly correlated with lying times and has been proven to improve yield. The longer a cow lies down the more milk she will produce and the lower the risk there is of her becoming lame.
Lying times are also important for the transition cow. The period around about calving is the highest risk period for the development of sole ulcers. Deep bedded larger cubicles (up to 50”) or straw yards stocked at 80% are very effective at promoting increased lying times.
Poor feed barrier design can affect dry matter intakes and even influence sorting and saliva production. Feed management related issues have shown to have a significant effect on milk production and the effectiveness of transition cow housing management.
