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.

Hygiene

Regular cleaning of the floor is particularly important to inhibit the growth of bacteria. A clean floor keeps cows from bringing manure into the cubicles. Tails as well as udders remain cleaner. This in turn reduces the potential for infections.

Cows are more comfortable to express their natural behaviour when their feet are healthy and the floor is not slippery. This makes it easier for you to detect cows that are in heat, allowing you to reduce the calving interval. Healthy feet are important for a cow to be able to move freely and do as she pleases: rest, eat, drink or go for milking.
