"They fit all 5-bar stalls, mounted with a single hose clamp. They're rigid so they can stand up to punishment from the strongest cows. Cows won't chew on fiberglass like wood or other materials and they won't rot," says John Hellerman, Hellerman, Inc., Melrose, Minn.
Dividing up the manger lets you put dry cows in with lactating cows, and helps save feed by assuring that each cow gets only its allotted amount. Hellerman says the dividers also help prevent knee damage because cows will stop straining against stalls once they realize they can't reach over anymore.
The dividers sell for $32 and adapt to variations in curb and manger height.
