Cubicle bedding in Cheshire from PH Winterton and Son should form part of your plan to keep your cattle safe and healthy.
Providing a comfortable place with our range of cubicle bedding will help your cows produce their best milk. Remember if your cattle become ill, injured or distressed the quality of their milk will plummet.

One of the most common diseases in cows is mastitis which affects the udder. The best way to prevent this sort of infection is clean bedding; especially during milking and right after. Our soft dust cubicle bedding is designed to prevent abrasions of the udder and legs.
We’d also recommend a closer clean of the teats to help disinfect them.

Diet Tips and Cubicle Bedding in Cheshire

Your cows require a well-balanced diet as they need a lot of energy to make delicious and nutritious milk. Ensuring your cows feed all year round, here are some options to add to their menu –

  • Dry feed which is usually cut and rolled into hay bales
  • Wet feed (also known as silage) is a mixture of alfalfa, barley and oats – these feeds are usually mixed with dry hay to create what farmers call a ‘ration’
  • Grains such as wheat, barley and oats provide cows with carbohydrates
  • We would recommend adding vitamins and minerals into their feeds
  • Salt may seem like a surprising addition to this list, but it serves as electrolytes giving your cows calcium and Vitamin D, which help to promote muscle development and blood flow as well as maintaining digestion
  • They also require a significant amount of water to produce milk properly

With a balanced diet and a cosy place to sleep your cows will the produce excellent dairy.
