Source: GEA

GEA now launched its new flexible cubicle GEA DairyBarn B3130 for dairy cows which enlarges cow comfort and maximizes the milk yield. It allows that animals can lie down and stand up with ease, with maximum safety thanks to its exclusive design. This results in healthy and rested cows which are essential for productivity and profitability in the dairy farm.

The GEA DairyBarn B3130 is the only cubicle on the market without fixed horizontal pipes. Therefore, it offers freedom of movement, flexibility and safety at the same time. The key benefits of the new cubicle are the flexible divisions which move sideways when touched by a cow, a wide front opening, a neck rail bar with vertical flexibility as well as a guide to ensure an optimum lying position. Produced from highly compressed polypropylene (PP), which guarantees greater flexibility while maintaining the high level of reliability compared with conventional steel designs.

More milk, healthy cows and optimum use of barn space

The result of longer lying times of 12 to 14 hours per day, is a herd with reduced stress and healthy cows with a longer productive live. Improved hoof and joint health as well as increased milk production for the long term is also a positive result of better cow comfort, thanks to more intensive rumination activity and better blood flow to the udder.

An additional benefit of the GEA DairyBarn B3130 is that the flexible cubicle can be adapted to perfectly fit the size of the cows and their natural movement patterns. Its versatility ensures maximum safety and makes it almost impossible for the cows to feel constricted. It optimizes the wellbeing of the animals and also utilizes the barn space in the best possible way.

Maximum comfort for animals and people

The GEA DairyBarn B3130 is one of the premium product lines in GEA’s cubicle portfolio. Together with the mattress system, water troughs and cow brushes, the new GEA cubicle in the barn ensures maximum comfort for animals and people.
