Cows like it, but normal slurry handling machinery and equipment certainly don’t. However, at Grosvenor Farms’ Lea Manor Dairy in Cheshire, most of the disadvantages of sand as cubicle bedding have been mastered … and the 2,300 pedigree Grosvenor Holsteins are lying comfortably

Lea Manor Dairy is a state-of-the-art, large-scale, milk-producing business and one that has evolved over many years from several separate units within the 2,340ha Grosvenor Farms operation in this popular dairying area in the north west of Cheshire.
