A new University of Kentucky fact sheet is available. The 3-page document, "Stall Bases:
Are Your Cows Comfortable?" was written by Barbara Wadsworth and Jeffrey Bewley, animal scientists with the University of Kentucky.
The fact sheet looks at advantages and disadvantages of stall bases, including concrete, rubber mats, rubber-filled mattresses, waterbeds, recycled manure solids, and deep-bedded sawdust
or sand stalls.
