Bedded Pack Management Workshop
Bedded pack barns are an alternative to free stall or tie-stall dairy barns. Regular addition of bedding and stirring of the bedded pack is required to maintain a dry and comfortable environment for dairy cattle in these barns. Benefits of a well managed bedded pack can include improved cow comfort and cleanliness, decreased somatic cell count, increased production, and reduced odor.
This program is for dairy producers and others interested in managing bedded pack dairy barns.
Workshop participants will learn best management practices for the management of dairy bedded pack barns.
