A clean barn results in cleaner feet, tails and udders. Less manure in the stalls means fewer hygiene-related foot and udder infections and promotes the natural, healthy behavior of your cows. This makes it easier to detect when cows are in heat, allowing you to reduce the calving interval. Healthy feet and udders make a significant financial contribution to a dairy farm.
Healthy dairy cattle offer optimum productivity, require less attention and are a pleasure to work with. It is a frustrating fact that mastitis, reduced fertility and foot health issues still count as the top-three reasons for culling on dairy farms. A clean barn floor keeps feet, legs, udders and tails cleaner and helps inhibit the growth of bacteria. This reduces hygiene-related feet and udder health issues.
