Deep litter flooring is the best option for cow health, cow welfare and effluent control when it is kept dry under the clear UV transmitting roof of one of our dairy shelters.

A Deep litter floor is usually made up of medium to large sized wood chip, bark or post-peelings. The deep litter locks in valuable nutrients which are released when it is recycled as compost and used on farm crops. The Deep litter system

provides a, clean and comfortable flooring for cows to rest and loaf.

  • Easy on cows’ feet and joints
  • Reduces damage to udders and underbelly
  • Cows choose to loaf and lay/rest which increases feed conversion
  • Floor is protected from rain by roof
