Numat rubber matting, an all-round surface solution

Te Awamutu, Waikato

Dairy farmer Peter Marwood says he discovered Numat at the Mystery Creek Fieldays and decided to install the ErgoMat in the pit of his shed and also in his daughter’s horse stable.

“I liked the idea of a softer walking surface in the pit mat for the benefit to myself as the milker. It was installed in June 2013 and I quickly noticed a reduction in leg fatigue come the end of the day, particularly in summertime when I usually tend to get achy feet and legs from the heat. It’s also a lot quieter in the shed; there’s no loud clattering and banging if the cups fall off the platform and no damage done to them, either.” 

Peter also decided the matting was a better alternative to wood chip in his horse stables. “It’s a bit of a process cleaning out a stable laid with wood chip and the horse would tend to play in the stuff and get his chaff dirty, too. All that’s a thing of the past now with the matting down.

“I would have no hesitation recommending Numat to other dairy farmers. It’s an excellent product”
