The new deep litter cubicle cushion KRAIBURG POLSTA: caring for carpal joints (167 kB)
With POLSTA the front area offers very good cow comfort. Obviously, our cows have a better lying behaviour. We are excited about the mats and the easy management!
The places with POLSTA are always occupied first. Regarding the management, we save about a quarter of the litter. We have 5 digging cows in the cubicle house, that often dig out almost all the litter of the cubicles. With POLSTA this is no longer the case!
The POLSTA mats keep the mattress in the head space at a constant height. The cows can lie down in excellent comfort. In comparison with previously, carpal joint health has further improved.
POLSTA is the perfect solution to create a good mattress in the front part of the deep litter cubicle. It also saves us a lot of time on daily mucking out.
