Grooming is natural behaviour for cows and it removes itchy spots on cow’s skin. It is shown that cows mostly groom hard or difficult to reach places like head, back (tail) and neck. Normally in a barn cows groom on concrete walls and sharp edges which can be dangerous. Therefore it is important that cows have a safe place to groom.

Relaxation

A cow brush is a perfect tool for cows to satisfy their grooming needs. It is safe, helps to reduce stress and keeps the coat clean. Research has shown that with the brush cows are grooming 3 times more and 6 times longer than without.

Grooming at a brush also helps to increase milk production. Reason – less stress, more relaxed and active cows walk more visiting the feed fence more frequently which results in higher feed intake.

Another benefit of the cow brush is lower mastitis cases. There are several hypothesis for it and one of them is when a cow’s coat overall is cleaner, including clean backend and tail, it will cause less contamination towards the udder.
