Using Manure Solids for Dairy Barn Bedding
Bedding dairy cows is costly and time-consuming. The cost and availability of bedding fluctuates, and good consistent bedding can be expensive and hard to find. More dairies have turned to dairy manure solids (DMS) as a bedding source. However, there are many questions about using DMS as bedding such as will it have an affect on udder health and milk quality? How often should it be re-bed? Is there a cost/savings to using DMS? This website addresses these issues.
