Kitt - Sand Saver Bed
The Sand Saver Bed from Kitt offers a solution to the escalating cost of sand for dairy housing. Field trials indicate potential savings of 30% - 50% on the amount of sand needed to top up. Sand is considered to be one of the most effective bedding types for dairy cubicles. However, replacement costs are high as cows paw and scrape it backwards to create their bedspace before lying down. As sand has risen considerably in cost in recent years this is placing an increasing burden on profitability. Kitt has addressed the problem by creating the Sand Saver, a thick rubber grid which holds the sand securely in situ, reducing wastage.
