Cow Comfort for Performance
"Save up to 18.2% of straw usage and reduce the time required to bed cattle by 29.5%"
"In addition: the savings with the Tomahawk are increased when using poor quality straw and when bales are heavy and difficult to handle."
And in relation to dust; "Although there were consistently higher inspirable dust concentrations from using the straw bedder, they remained less than 10% of the occupation exposure limit of the 10mg/m³ guideline limit."
"From the point of view of safety, with 15% of major agricultural injuries being due to working with livestock the benefits are clear."
