Straw saver keeps bedding under cows
The Straw Saver helps hold bedding in stalls so cows don't lie on the wet floor and get infected udders. The Straw Saver also provides a toe-hold for cows with bad legs to get up. It consists of brackets that fasten to the cement floor. J-clips fit into the brackets and hold a 1¢-in. dia. pipe in place. The pipe rests ¢-in. above the floor just at the edge of the gutter and the stall, leaving enough room so urine can run out underneath. The J-clips make it easy to remove the pipes in summer.
Straw Saver brackets sell for $11.50 (Canadian). You need one bracket per stall. Pipe can be purchased locally.
