Bad lunge in stall with a low pipe in front of the stall. All pipes or straps must be in thr right location so she can lunge forward but stop her from going through ther stall. Call us for the exact dimensions
Bad lunge in a traditional 8 foot platform that offers no lung room for the cow. Hock sores and hair loss are caused from abraisions from stuggling to get up.
Notice how low to the ground her head goes when she lunges forward to get down.
This is why stalls break and cows get injured!!!
With the correct dimensions cows can act natural just like in pasture
