ABSTRACT:

Lying behaviour is a high priority behaviour. Lack of lying and sleep has an impact on both production and welfare of dairy cows. Housing has a substantial effect on the lying behaviour, overall health and performance of dairy cattle. Each housing system has its own advantages and disadvantages in terms of welfare. The successful implementation of a compost bedded system by the Chiavassa farm on the efficiency of production is presented.
