Bedded pack and self cleaning floor systems for heifer housing

, : Bedded pack and self cleaning floor systems for heifer housing. Dairy systems for the 21st century Proceedings of the third international dairy housing conference held in Orlando, Florida, USA, 2-5 February 1994: 807-816

Variations in animal performance were observed between and within original and modified counterslope heifer housing units which formed the basis of housing with a self cleaning resting area with a scrape alley. Although management practice and space requirement information were available for the original counterslope design, it was not known whether the variation in animal performance could be explained by management or building environment.
