Waterbeds for cows capture attention at Agromek

Waterbeds for cows impressed innovation judges at last week’s Agromek 2016 in Denmark, which is the single largest combined agricultural exhibition to be hosted in Northern Europe.

The Staldmaeglerne company showed its Aquatop water-filled top mattress for cow cubicles, which was evaluated as a two-star new product exhibit by Agromek judges.

The Aquatop mattress can be fitted on top of existing cow mattresses, or direct on to uneven flooring.

It has a soft and smooth 5.5mm top cover above a water-filled pocket.

The water pocket helps to spread the cow’s weight throughout the entire surface of the waterbed so that all pressure points are supported, for optimum comfort.

The product is suitable for uneven surfaces because the water-filled mattress fills any uneven areas.
