Stanfield, Ariz., producer David Feenstra took a 5-foot wide piece of rubber belting and cut it into three strips. A 1-foot wide strip was placed next to the headlock for the cows’ front feet. A 2-foot wide strip was placed under the cows’ hind feet. And another 2-foot wide strip serves as a travel lane behind the cows eating at the bunk.
By cutting the belting up, says Feenstra, “we were able to provide benefit for the cows eating and the cows walking behind without any added cost for more rubber belting.”
