Study shows the benefits of cow brushes

A new study shows stationary brushes and hanging hemp ropes are very important for cattle of all ages. 

Researchers from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada used stationary brushes to study weaned dairy heifers. The study found cows with no access to brushes tend to rub their heads and bodies against pen walls and the edges of water troughs, risking injury. Additionally, young cattle appear to be motivated to manipulate objects with their mouths.
