Safety & healthy claws

KRAIBURG walking area floorings 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!

So easy to clean
So easy to clean

“The KURA mats in the milking parlour are great to keep clean! They offer a good, secure footing and the cows walk willingly in and out of the milking parlour. Even in sub-zero temperatures, the footing stays secure.”
