More animal welfare & less work
A stable high milk yield requires animal-friendly housing methods.
For the lying area, this means comfortable, non-slip and clean free stalls, where cows are happy to spend more than 12 hours in a relaxed position. This protects the joints, relieves the hooves and enhances animal welfare.
Less bedding & work
POLSTA is specially designed for the front area of the deep bedded stall. This is where cows often dig unwanted pits, which can only be controlled through time consuming maintenance measures. POLSTA provides a remedy by replacing the bottom, thick layer of bedding in the head space of the deep bedded stall. This offers easy management, thereby reducing the workload. It additionally reduces the amount of required bedding.
The deep bedded stall cushion provides a permanently stable and comfortable substructure in the head space. It prevents joints lying on hard concrete should the layer of bedding have slipped. A study conducted by HBLFA Raumberg‐Gumpenstein, Austria, has shown that this helps to protect the carpal joints. Skin diseases and changes to joints among dairy cows were surveyed on various farms. Although good joint health was prevalent in the barns beforehand, further improvements came about with POLSTA after only a short period of time.
