Comfort Zone; Space for the cow
One of the essential parts of the Comfort Zone is the Wisconsin lying box. It is designed in such a way that the cow does not experience any obstacles when she is lying down or getting up.

Space for the cow
When a cow lies down or goes up in the pasture, she needs at least 3 meters of space: her so called “Comfort Zone”. Each obstacle within this reach she will experience as being annoying and that will have a negative influence on her behaviour. With the Comfort Zone Cowhouse developed a lying box concept where, just like in nature, the cows enjoy full freedom of movement. Since there aren’t any obstacles, the cow does not have any fear to lie down or to get up.
Thanks to the unique and patented adjustable floor mounting there is a fully free headspace of 180°. There aren't any poles or horizontal front tubes. The continuous under tube gives the cow steering when she is lying down. The lying boxes are made of high quality steel and are hot-dip galvanized. The Wisconsin lying box is available in lengths to 300 cm single rows and to 580 cm double rows.
