COMFORT FOR GENERATIONS

Hesse & Sons Dairy in Oregon, pictured above, has installed more than 1,500 DCC Waterbeds over the past decade. The milking herd and the heifers all sleep on waterbeds. The Hesse family’s DCC Waterbeds have provided comfort for generations. 

THE ISO DELIVERS

"The cows utilize the waterbeds perfectly, and the beds and the cows stay clean. They don’t take a lot of bedding, and our hock abrasions are way down in the waterbed barn...Right now on the market, for me, the ISO bed is the best option for cow comfort.” 

Mike Verhasselt, Wisconsin


Sand may be the gold standard for cow comfort, but DCC Waterbeds are the diamond standard... Our somatic cell count and mastitis is just as low as it was with sand, but with very little bedding.” 

René Dutil, St-Anselme, Québec

 
 
 

THE ONLY THING FOR HEIFERS

"The [milk] cows are comfortable, [and] there’s nothing else you should ever house heifers on—the waterbeds are so durable and maintenance free. I don’t know why you’d put heifers on anything else.” 

— Brent Helsel, Pennsylvania

SAME PRODUCTION AS ON SAND

 "I really don’t know why anyone would want anything other than waterbeds. We get the same production and same healthy feet and legs as we had on sand. The investment has been worth it just in cow comfort, not to mention all of the maintenance benefits.”

- Keith Schulte, Iowa

 

EASY CLEANING ROUTINE

The cows love them. We put them in our special needs area, too, and they’re wonderful. Also, the bedding cost. We don’t have to spend hardly anything. We clean the back part of the stall off every milking and put a light coat of [top bedding] down.” 

— Larry Baer, Ohio
 

THE BEST FOR ROBOTIC MILKING

“When I approached the whole milking thing, I understood that robotic milking is robotic milking. It takes a duty off of your hands to relieve yourself of manual labor. So I think if you’re looking to get robots to reduce labor, you should be looking at your whole barn, not just the milking. I looked at the DCC Waterbed and I fell in love with them…It relieves labor, it saves me time and money, I have record breaking SCC numbers, and it wasn’t that much difference in cost.”

- Nels Goblirsch, Minnesota
