DCC Waterbeds for Dairy Cow Comfort
DCC Waterbeds offer a long-lasting, comfortable, low-maintenance solution to a dairy management challenge—consistent cow comfort.
Water is a forgiving surface that supports the cow, but will not pack down. The beds gently float the cow’s pressure points—knees, hocks, and udder—while shedding moisture and helping keep bacteria levels low.
Every time a cow leaves a DCC Waterbed, the bed immediately returns to its original shape, ensuring a custom fit for every cow, every time.
Cows like a comfortable surface. Cows like predictability. DCC Waterbeds provide both—every minute of every day. With DCC Waterbeds, you will have peace of mind knowing your cows are comfortable, dry, clean, and cool.
