If you have mattresses in your free-stalls, consider using these additional tactics to help your lame cows recover faster, says Nigel Cook, veterinarian at the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine.

  • Set up sand free-stalls in the hospital area and move lame cows there while they recover.
