WE CAN HELP YOU GROW 

DCC Waterbeds have been in dairy barns for more than a decade, delivering proven cow comfort and farm management benefits.

DCC Waterbeds are the only bedding surface that provides consistent comfort for the cow each and every time she lies down. DCC Waterbeds float the pressure points, and even after thousands of uses, they return to their original shape, ensuring top-quality comfort for every cow, every time.

EARN CUSTOMERS FOR LIFE

When you offer DCC Waterbeds as a bedding solution to your customers, you are offering a premium product with an unparalleled 10-year limited warranty in free stall barns. DCC Waterbeds are straightforward to install, require little warranty work over time, and will help you build your customer base. What's even better, nearly 100% of the dairy producers who install DCC Waterbeds once go back to install more DCC Waterbeds over time.

BARN CONSIDERATIONSlook at the farm system

Every dairy is different. We want our dealers to look at the total farm system, assess how DCC Waterbeds will fit, consider the challenges, and be confident when they make a recommendation. Our sales reps are always available with references, knowledge, and support to help your customers solve their comfort challenges.

FOCUS ON INSTALLATIONmeasure & install properly

DCC Waterbeds are  a straightforward solution to a cow comfort problem. The simple design floats the cow. That is all. 

But like any technology, the details matter. We train our dealers in how to measure barns and ensure custom fit on each individual farm. We provide installation support so DCC Waterbeds can provide maximum comfort and minimal maintenance.

Understand farm goalsmaintenance made simple

A comfortable, clean, dry surface is the pinnacle of cow comfort. DCC Waterbeds provide comfort and the bed design helps ensure relative dryness by shedding liquid into the alley. Additionally, we provide resources for our dealers to assess farm goals and develop specific cleaning and bedding routines to ensure milk quality and cow cleanliness goals are being achieved.
