Cubicle Bedding Materials Farming Note

The right cubicle bedding material for your farm depends on how well it keeps the cows clean and dry, how abrasive it is and how well it is handled by your slurry system. Poor bedding will encourage bacterial growth and increase the incidence of mastitis in your herd.

This Farming Note covers:

  • Bacteria levels in different cubicle bedding materials
  • The costs of different bedding types
  • A comparison of different bedding types

Issued September 2012.
