Description

Pride Tuff Features
“Natural Grazing” Feeder Advantages
Cows eating with their heads in the downward “natural grazing” position produced 17% more saliva than those eating from an elevated surface. Additional salivation had a direct positive influence on the efficiency of rumen function. Overall digestion was significantly enhanced.
From a Study by: McFarlane, I.S. Bovine behavior patterns. Livestock Breeder Journal. December 15 (no. 12):6.

Milking cows were observed for the occurrence of feed-tossing behavior. When given the choice of eating from an elevated (11 inches – 28 cm) bunk versus one at ground level, the cows chose the lower level and feed tossing was not observed. This study concluded that the solution to feed sorting and throwing is designing equipment which permits cattle to feed “in the natural, head-down, grazing-like position”.
