Safety & healthy claws

KRAIBURG covers for slatted floors are specially adapted to the natural needs of cattle: they are animal-friendly soft, improve claw health and sure-footedness. The cows respond with higher activity and better productivity. Lameness-free cows are more fertile and save a lot of work and costs. Animal-friendly walking areas pay off!

Claw abrasion & improved grip

Abrasive walking area floorings create optimized claw abrasion, very similar to conditions in nature, where sandy constituents in the elastic soil ensure that horn formation and abrasion are kept balanced.

Walking area floorings with abrasive surface

With EMIRA the abrasive agent corundum is incorporated into the surface and thereby promotes gentle claw abrasion. The corundum also ensures even better sure-footedness with animal-friendly softness.

Abrasive corundum

› The second hardest mineral after diamond
› Does not react with acids and bases: best precondition for use in slurry environments
› Patented technology which has been well-proven in the KRAIBURG group for many years
› An exceptionally high level of sure-footedness has been proven in practice
