Whether the barn is a freestall or tie-stall cows are most productive when they spend the majority of their time only on three productive actions: 

  1. Milking
  2. Eating 
  3. Lying down 

One of the most controllable of these is getting the cow to spend more time in the stall.  Time spent lying down can be increased by making sure the stalls are: 

  • The correct size 
  • Bedded correctly 
  • Kept clean
