Gerth farm, Büdingen, Germany

Achim Gerth, Büdingen, Germany, has a dairy farm with 65 cows. In May 2018, he equipped 16 of his deep litter cubicles with the deep litter cubicle cushion POLSTA.

"We installed 16 POLSTA mats for testing and we are very pleased with them. The cows immediately lay down into the newly equipped cubicles. Now the situation is, that 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!"
