Agriprom has demonstrated that cow-comfort holds close relation with increased return on investment and thus results in economic value.
For years breeding organizations focused their research on improvement of the genetic level of protein and milk while animal nutrition companies focused on optimizing nutrition. Dairy producers were taught to consider these aspects and their focus was on reaching the highest production goals. While proper nutrition and genetics are very important, they are only two of the numerous factors necessary for productive animal husbandry. In the past attention was given primarily to nutrition and breeding. The other aspects; environment & cow comfort were not considered to be important factors in productive animal husbandry.
The first Agriprom cow mattress was introduced in 1994 along with the introduction of the terminology cowcomfort. Over the years Agriprom has demonstrated that cow-comfort holds close relation with increased return on investment and thus results in economic value. Recently, researchers and other producers have paid more attention to creating a comfortable environment for dairy cows and their calves.
This is reflected in Agriprom’s current product portfolio. Which aims at providing a more comfortable and healthy environment. Observation and experience show that cows housed in a comfortable environment produce more milk and generally live healthier, longer lives. Cows have their own ways of making clear what they want and where their preference lies, when it comes to their comfort.
