Dry living environment

Challenges in the barn

Preparing a dry environment

A clean, disinfected, dry and comfortable environment is important to get good results. MS DryCare has a 200% moisture absorption and is perfect to add on the bedding to provide a dry environment for the cows.

Moisture control

Controlling the wet spots with MS DryCare, with a moisture absorption of <200% it helps bring the moisture level in the boxes or on the beds back under control.

Udder care

Drying powders help to inhibit growth of bacteria by removing moisture.

How moisture control

helps to reduce the spread of pathogens

While various strains of bacteria require specific temperatures and environmental conditions for growth and survival, a common requirement among them all is a source of nutrients and access to water or moisture. Unregulated moisture levels can create an environment conducive to the proliferation of bacteria.

Controlling moisture on the bedding and in cows huts helps prevent the spread of pathogens:

  1. Drier Bedding Material: Maintaining dry and clean beds helps keep the udders dry and the cows comfortable. Dry bedding helps prevent irritation and skin damage caused by high moisture content.
  2. Improved Hygiene: Regularly controlling wet spots or removing wet or soiled bedding and replacing it with fresh, dry material reduces the moisture content in the environment this reduces the chances of bacteria from thriving in damp conditions.
