As Carolyn and I travel from farm show to farm show, we tend to hear the same questions over and over: How do cow mattresses compare to sand? How do they compare to water beds? How long do they last? Which makes for a better cow bed — rubber or foam? Dairy producers want to know!
We’ve tried to answer some of the most common cow comfort questions on our website, but I’m sure you have others. Feel free to contact me and I’ll try to address them in this blog. We’ll also talk about some of your biggest challenges in cow bedding and maintenance, share success stories and provide a forum for producers, veterinarians and anyone else who takes cow comfort seriously.
