Safety & healthy claws

KRAIBURG walking area mats 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 quickly!

Scraper manure removal

In principal we recommend the use of scrapers specifically developed for rubber floors. For structural alterations it is necessary to adapt the scraper facilities in coordination with the scraper manufacturer, according to the KRAIBURG guidelines for manure scrapers.

Important:

Check the scraper at least once a year and grind off the sharp edges!
