IAE have been manufacturing cubicles of varying designs since the early 1970’s, starting with basic design such as Simple Stalls, Newton Rigg and Mushroom cubicles. Over the years industry experts have put greater focus on improving cubicle housing solutions, as a result IAE developed their first “post and rail” cantilever system – the Super Comfort cow cubicle. This was followed by the Supreme and culminated with their flagship Ultima cow cubicle.
Iae have been involved in cubicle housing solutions throughout the UK and abroad, successfully helping farmers to improve conditions for their animals. The reduction in disease assisted by better housing and improved animal welfare, coupled with the greater comfort offered by the latest designs, leads to enhanced milk production and better profitability.
The quality of the housed environment has a major impact on dairy herd welfare and economic performance. Time spent on the building design will reap the benefits many times over on both the life of the cows and even more over the life of the building.
There are many sources of information which will aid in the design of your building, some useful sources include publications by DairyCo and RIDBA’s The Farm Buildings Handbook as well as material freely available on the internet by Jamie Robertson from Aberdeen University.
