 KRAIBURG POLSTA:

  • 10 cm thick "cushion" made of 2 functional layers
  • replaces the thick lower layer of litter in the difficult to be maintained head space of the deep litter cubicle
  • provides a consistently stable and comfortable sub-construction
  • offers easy management and saves litter

The agricultural test institute HBLFA Raumberg-Gumpenstein, Austria, has tested the deep litter cubicle cushion POLSTA on various dairy farms. Skin damages and joint alterations have been recorded.

  • Evaluation of POLSTA by the dairy farmers: very good!
  • The animals accept the cubicles well and maintenance is facilitated.
  • Although good joint health prevailed already in the cow houses from the beginning, further improvement was shown even after a short period of time!
