Located in the rural community of Orini in the Waikato region is Airlie Lodge. A dairy farm, milking 780 cows on 238 hectares of land.
In 2022, sharemilker, Graeme Bell reached out to NumatAGRI for some rubber matting solutions that they could install in the Entry/Exit and Platform of their rotary shed. The previous rubber matting on the rotary platform was wearing down and their concrete entry/exit was also getting worn down with daily traffic.
They decided to install Kura matting in the entry and exit points and Ergomats on the 50-bail rotary platform. Having had rubber matting previously, Graeme knew that by installing purpose-built rubber matting they could minimise slips and improve cow flow during milking. Rubber matting could also help them lower maintenance costs and keep their concrete areas from further wear by adding a layer of protection with rubber that can safeguard the surface and cushion the hooves going over it.
Since NumatAGRI’s rubber mats, Graeme has seen cows come more comfortably and readily into the milking shed. Cow flow has improved, and the previous slipping issue has disappeared.
