KRAIBURG rubber cow mattresses for dairy housing: more animal welfare & less work

Lying areas in the cubicle house

More animal welfare & less work

Consistently high milk yield requires animal-friendly housing methods.

Regarding the lying areas, this means comfortable, non-slip and clean cubicles in which the cows like to spend more than half the day in a relaxed position. This protects the joints, relieves the claws and thus increases animal welfare.

KRAIBURG cubicle covers are

  • robust and permanently soft
  • skin-friendly and gentle on the joints
  • for better sure-footedness
  • easy to maintain
  • easy to install
