Providing comfortable, slip-resistant surfaces for cows to walk on facilitates natural cow behaviour. When allowed a choice, cows often prefer to stand or walk on a rubber surface rather than on concrete. Installing rubber floor coverage in your barn, or in the milking parlour and the waiting area, can improve the daily routine of eating, drinking, walking and resting. Rubber coverage on a slatted or solid floor will encourage confident walking and comfortable standing.

Cows will move more – enabling easier heat detection, increased feed intake and a higher milk yield.

The slip-resistant surface combines softness with good grip to improve cow stability, safety and comfort. This promotes cow traffic and encourages visits to the feed fence and water trough for increased feed intake – and a higher milk yield. It is also easier to spot cows in heat as they move more naturally. The ribbed base increases surface comfort and softness while letting liquids flow through. It facilitates easy cleaning and better drainage, for drier floors and healthier hooves. DeLaval rubber coverage is available in standard sizes, which slot together in segments, to fit any area.
