Why Use Animat Rubber Matting?

Increase Cow Profitability: AHDB – Dairy recently estimated that lameness costs the average dairy herd over 1p per litre of milk produced, so rubber matting can improve both animal welfare and profitability.

  • Move naturally and easily.
  • Suffer less lameness.
  • Are less stressed.
  • Have fewer falls and injuries.
  • Improve locomotion scores.

Better Hygiene: The 100% recycled rubber cow mats are:

  • Easy to clean and disinfect.
  • Non-porous so no liquid is absorbed.
  • Adaptable to all existing cleaning systems including sluicing systems with fixed or moveable scrapers and slatted floors.

Better Heat Detection: The natural feel and security of the rubber cow matting promotes the natural behaviour of a cow in heat making it easier to identify the insemination period.

Durable, Adaptable and Easy to Fit: The mats have:

  • A SEVEN YEAR manufacturers warranty.
  • Interlocks on 1,2,3 or 4 sides for quick and secure fitting.
  • A unique profile so the scraper does not run on the matting.
