 “OUR CELL COUNTS HAVE DROPPED- EVEN WITHOUT USING LIME”

 

“Since using the Finebed, our somatic cell counts have dropped- and no lime is required on the beds at all. The product is very easily applied to the cubicle- we use a dispenser- and since it’s so absorbent, a little goes a long way which makes it economic to use.

We only use 3-4 bags a day for the 120 cubicles, which we bed twice- at milking times. We use it for the dry cows once daily as well instead of lime. It’s a lot quicker to prepare the cows at milking time, as they’re so clean on the Finebed.”

 

For more information on how you can benefit from using Platts products – and improving cow comfort on your farm- call our team on 01978 854666, or email sales@plattsanimalbedding.co.uk for more information.
