Flingk – Bedding technique

Bedding technique

95% of the dairy farms have cow cubicles. The cubicle is a very important place in the barn, since there the cow ruminates, produces milk and rests. Therefore it must be a comfortable place for the cow. In order to achieve this, well-maintained bedding is essential. The type of bedding material plays a very important role and the bedding must be refreshed en replaced regularly. Flingk offers various spreaders for different types of bedding and various situations to distribute bedding well and efficiently.

Deep litter or mats/cow mattress

We distinguish between cubicles with deep litter and cubicles with mats. When daily small quantities of bedding are distributed to cow cubicles with mats the best choice is the electric spreader SE250, the hydraulic linkage spreader Z type (with optional metering shutter) or the CS. With these machines it is possible to distribute small quantities of bedding very precisely. Cubicles with deep litter require a larger quantity of bedding. In that case the Z, S, SX, ZX, ZXS, KSS and GS types are very suitable. The table below shows which types of spreaders can be used for the various types of bedding material.
On this page all the types of spreaders are described. We also have the BV bedding maker, which is suitable for levelling and refreshing the cubicles.
