Barn equipment that introduces new ways to utilize the feed barriers

It’s time to stop thinking in general terms when cows are fed. It’s time to give the cows the freedom from grass fields into the barns. It’s time to have flexible feed barriers for the well-being of the cow!

Cow-Welfare’s™ suggestion for a flexible barn equipment: Cow-Welfare Flex Feed™, is a revolutionary way to feed cows indoors. With a flexibility of 30 °, the feed barrier follows the cow’s movements and ensures that the cow is not going to get hurt. The flexibility at the same time gives the cow a possibility to reach longer out on the feeding table too, which means that the cow will eat for a longer time without getting any damages or injuries from the barn equipment.

The feed barriers are made up by plastic tubes to divide the feeding places. The plastic pipes are mounted on a long rectangular scrap of iron, which is tiltable because of a suspension in each end. When the cow presses its shoulders at the plastic pipes, the whole construction will move forward, which means that the cow will avoid any marks and injuries on the shoulders and neck.

FACTS ABOUT COW-WELFARE FLEX FEED™:

The system gives freedom back to the cow as if it was out on the field. The cow consumes more food at the feeding table when it is feeling the same freedom as in the field. Note, how high the cow lifts its head to let the feed slide down the throat and further down into the stomach. The cow is able to reach further out on feeding table for consuming the food because the head locks are following. The cow stays longer at the feeding table and there will be no pressure from other animals in the herd.
