› fattening bulls and young cattle in pens

Healthier animals & higher yields

Fully slatted pens with rubber covers provide more sure-footedness and comfort. Along with other things, this is demonstrated by fewer injuries, natural movement patterns and the animal’s preference for rubber. Bulls held on rubber covers achieve the slaughter weight faster than animals held on concrete slatted floors.

Rubber covers protect the joints so that standing up and lying down can be performed in a normal way and therefore happen more frequently. This has a positive effect on feed intake. The better sure-footedness allows for behaviour fulfilling the animal’s needs and provides more well-being:

KRAIBURG Info

Important: Balanced feeding is a requirement for clean animals.

KRAIBURG InfoThe mats are generally dimensioned according to the guidelines established by our specialists. The slatted floor must be suitable for covering with KRAIBURG mats.

Complete covering pays off!

In order to reduce injuries and enable all animals to behave fulfilling their needs we recommend that you cover the complete pen with rubber.

If only a part of the pen is covered with rubber mats, it must be ensured that the animals at the feeding area stand on the mat either completely or not at all!

You can find more details on this in our criteria for covering fully slatted pens

optimal: the pen is fully covered with rubber floorings

More active animals with higher daily weight gain
More active animals with higher daily weight gain

“The animals are healthier, more vital and active, even the daily weight gain has improved. Getting up is easier and die the mats are gentle on the carpal joints. With soft floors animal culling due to injuries from falling practically does not happen anymore.”
