Dairy

With every Numat rubber mat installed, you improve the health of your cows which, in turn leads to greater milk yields and lower claw treatment and stock replacement costs.

Key concerns on the farm

Dairy lameness

Studies show that rubber matting has a positive impact on mobility and hoof and leg health. The softer underfoot conditions provided by rubber mats reduces pressure on the hoof and reduces lameness.

Dairy slipping

Ensuring the surfaces around your dairy shed are comfortable and non-slip, is one of the best ways to increase cow confidence and productivity, and reduce injuries on the farm.

 

Dairy cow flow

When cows are hesitant to step into the milking shed it increases time and effort and decreases herd health and quantity of milk flow. Rubber matting can help reduce stress and get your cows flowing.

 

Pasture management

Rubber matting on your yard provides a compliant stand-off pad for a fraction of the cost of building a new stand-off pad. In most cases, the effluent management system is already built into the yard.

 

Hooves choose it.

Given the choice, dairy cows would prefer to walk on rubber matting. In this video, we set up two strips of rubber on a concrete exit race to put this idea to the test. Watch the video to see what happened.
