Five Star Dairy wanted to create a better system by improving their cows' health, somatic cell count and reproduction. Kinnard Farms wanted to create a closed loop recycling system for their sand bedding. Both Wisconsin farms turned to McLanahan to create a Bedding Dryer to reduce the moisture content in their bedding. McLanahan's Manure Bedding Dryer has reduced the moisture content in Five Star Dairy's bedding from 70% to 30% and vastly improved the health of their cows. McLanahan's Sand Bedding Dryer, combined with a Sand Separation System and Dewatering Screen, reduces the sand moisture to half a percent, and the sand can be immediately put back into the stalls.
