KRAIBURG rubber mats for slatted floors in bull fattening: healthier animals & higher yields

Slatted flooring for bull fattening

Healthier animals & higher yields

Fully slatted pens with rubber mats 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 kept on rubber achieve the slaughter weight faster than animals kept on concrete slatted floors.

Rubber mats 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.

Flexible single mats with elastic fixings
  • Allow for the necessary movement between rigid concrete and elastic rubber

  • Individual installation improves durability

    › flexible rubber and rigid concrete are very different materials, a fixed connection between rubber and concrete could therefore easily break

  • Single mats can easily be installed or exchanged anytime, independently of the concrete slatted floor

  • The slits in the floor can be adjusted by means of rubber covers to fulfill legal requirements

elastische Kotabrisskante ermöglicht bessere Selbstreinigung

elastic faeces-tearoff-edge enables better  dung passage and hence better self-cleaning

When turning:
the mat cushions and supports the claw as it rotates

Based on the CAD-created drawing, the slits are cut exactly into the mats with innovative water jet technology

KRAIBURG Info IconThe mats are dimensioned by our specialists on the basis of many years‘ experience. Stability also plays an important role.

In addition to the slit and tread widths in the slatted floor, feeding, aeration, occupation density etc. are important for clean floors.

Installation – easy and safe
  • single mats are very easy to handle
  • the mats are fixed to the slats with special fixing elements
  • KRAIBURG fixing system: patented rubber peg to prevent lateral slipping – flush with the mat

Complete covering pays off!

In order to reduce injuries and enable all animals to behave fulfilling their needs we recommend full covering of the pen with rubber.

In the case of partial covering with rubber:

Lower ranking animals are easily pushed off. This is particularly true where the complete lying area cannot be used as such because the animals in the feeding place stand with their hind legs on the mats of the lying area.


When feeding, the animals should stand on the mat either completely or not at all! This is also important for
long-term functionality.

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

Fully covered pens pay off! We recommend to fully cover the pen with rubber floorings.
