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!

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!

The specialties

Klauenabrieb und extra Grip mit Korund - KRAIBURG Laufgangmatten aus Gummi

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 profiKURA 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

”With profiKURA we no longer have problems with silent heat or claw injuries. Claw growth and abrasion are nicely balanced. The cows are much more active, feed more and we have a significantly higher milk yield! The investment has really paid off."

“The cows are significantly more active on profiKURA mats and no longer slip at all! If manure occasionally freezes onto the rubber in sub-zero temperatures, the ice simply breaks away as soon as the cows tread on the mats.”

Claw abrasion is great with the profiKURA P mats! The trimmer only needs to come and trim them twice a year. Furthermore, the mats offer excellent grip, the cows are sure-footed enough to properly gallop on them without slipping.”
