Cow Mattresses and Rubber Flooring
concrete with mattresses and rubber matting provides conditions closer
to natural pasture, keeping your dairy cows:
- Safe, clean and comfortable
- Unstressed and behaving naturally.
Using mattresses in your lying areas can:
- Increases milk yields by encouraging cows to
lie and ruminate for longer
- Reduces vet bills by supporting cows as they
get up and down, reducing leg injuries and abrasions
- Reduces the incidence of mastitis by keeping
cows clean and dry for longer, improving udder and milk hygiene
We offer three different cow mattresses:

recycled rubber, it allows cows to move
naturally and easily and so:

Mark Allison, Cumbria
Our Jerseys danced on the rubber mats when we first installed them in the robot entry area - and still do so every so often.”
A customer who milks 200 Jerseys
We recently put Animat rubber flooring in the stalls, entry and exit areas of our rapid exit milking parlour. The surface is exactly what I was looking for; secure and non-slip, allowing the cows to stand comfortably and move quickly and safely through the parlour.
The fitting was a very tidy job, and Intershape was flexible in arranging the work around my building schedule.
I am extremely pleased with both the product and the service Intershape provided.”
