The procedural costs of various operations for different types of cubicle systems were collected. Each operation kept 400 – 1200 dairy cows.
8 operations were compared (state of Saxony, Germany):
5 operations with deep litter cubicles – litter: straw-lime
2 operations with elevated cubicles and rubber mat – litter: lime
1 operation with elevated cubicles and rubber mat – litter: straw
The average procedural costs per year for elevated cubicles with rubber mat are less than half of the costs for deep litter cubicle systems!
