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!
