    I'll PM you for address if you want some.
    OBTW sand is one of the best bedding materials. It keeps cows cool in the summer; their bodies rearrange the sand to make their "bed"; it reduces the incidence of udder infections (mastitis) because bacteria have a tough time growing in it.
    Okay now I'll get off today's lesson in dairy farming LOL.
    I found that very interesting about the sand and the cows. Does it help cut down on the odor too?
    Not really--manure is manure--and the odor stays the same. I've lost my sense of smell so doesn't bother me. LOL
