Case Studies

Andrew Brown – Smalmstown Farm, Longtown, Cumbria
Herdsman Andrew Brown is looking after hundreds of cows at Smalmstown Farm in Cumbria. As a regular user of Cubicle Care Andrew has been able to successfully control mastitis in the herd “I now use Cubicle Care regularly. When I first started I’d use it for a period of time and then take a break; however as soon as I stopped mastitis would start to creep back in. It was a false economy and given I’m only spending 10p per cow per day on Cubicle Care I just use it all the time now. It’s a small amount to pay when each case of mastitis can cost £250. There’s just no point taking a risk.”

Andrew is now using Liquid Foot Care as well. Since using it on the herd, there have been no foot problems at all and he is also saving money “The Liquid Foot Care is really easy to use; I just fill the foot bath up directly from the IBC. When the cows walk through you can easily see how the liquid clings to their feet, you know you’re providing lasting protection.”

Not only has the health of the herd improved, but the financial benefits are equally rewarding “I’m now making significant savings every month since I switched to Liquid Foot Care from previously using copper sulphate. With Liquid Foot Care being a lime based product I’m also reducing the acidity of the slurry; consequently I get further savings on time and money elsewhere on the farm.”

Craig Drummond – Barony College, Dumfries
With a herd of 300+ cows, Craig Drummond has found that using Cubicle Care makes a real difference. Since making the switch from another product 9 months ago cell counts and the mastitis incidence have fallen. “I started using the product as it was recommended to me by two other farmers as a more cost effective product to use. It has helped with the health of the herd due to more routine use of the product versus its competitors. It isn’t as expensive, therefore we can justify using more.”

James Simpson – Leyburn, North Yorkshire
A Cubicle Care user for over 5 years James knows all about its ability to help kill bacteria and prevent mastitis. But he also recognises that the service he gets from Bolshaws is second to none “The lads at Bolshaws have always been very helpful and they always deliver when they say they are going to.”

Stuart Roberts – Park Hall Farm, Tarporley
With a herd of over 250 cows to manage livestock health is at the top of the agenda at Park Hall Farm. Stuart Roberts has used Cubicle Care for many years and is delighted with the results. “There isn’t a better value for money hydrated lime product on the market. It crucially helps to protect the milk yields and has virtually eliminated cases of mastitis.”

The hydrated lime is added every day to the back of the cubicle beds; absorbing moisture bacteria is killed in the process. The longer periods of warmer and wetter weather that are now a firm feature of the British climate make the regular use of Cubicle Care even more important.
