Combined housing - improving comfort and safety with rubber flooring

Many cows are still kept in tying stalls. Some farms have already developed good solutions to offer the animals more opportunities for movement.
We show you successful concepts, how farms combine the classic tying stall system with paddock or pasture. To allow safe entry and exit, the floor conditions on the newly used areas have been adjusted. Rubber flooring is a simple and comfortable solution here.

The ideal combination of elevated cubicle and deep bedded cubicle?

The ideal combination of elevated cubicle and deep bedded cubicle?

Consistently high lying comfort, especially at work peaks such as cutting grass, sowing or harvesting, is not always easy to maintain in the classic deep bedded cubicle. Our maxiBOX for elevated deep bedded cubicles has already proven itself for 10 years. The 4-component system ensures year-round functional safety and consistent comfort – even if you haven’t got enough time for maintenance every now and then!

The system is now also available for longer cubicles with an effective lying length of 205 cm!

Hygiene in the milking parlour through proper cleaning

Hygiene in the milking parlour through proper cleaning

Milking parlour mats must be cleaned regulary and thoroughly, so that the floor in the milking parlour remains slip-resistant and hygienic. Thus, the function of the mats is maintained in the long term.

Resilient skin due to dry walking areas

Resilient skin due to dry walking areas

Healthy, intact skin in the claw area provides crucial protection against infectious claw diseases. It is therefore necessary to keep the walking areas – and thereby the claws – as dry and clean as possible.

Longer lying areas and more comfort with KEW Plus

Longer lying areas and more comfort with KEW Plus

In many farms everything seems to be fine with the adjustment of the cubicles. It often happens, however, that the horizontal distance between the neck rail and the brisket board is too small, so that the cows hit the brisket board with their carpal joints when they lie down. This leads to unwanted lying positions and reduced lying times.

What options there are to extend the lying areas in existing barns and thereby improve the comfort for the cows we show you in this video »

2 litres more milk per cow per day

2 litres more milk per cow per day

After two years in the new barn, the concrete in the walking areas was smooth and slippery. To ensure that the cows can walk safely again in the long term, our profiKURA P rubber mats were installed. Since then, there are no more problems with silent heat or claw injuries and the milk yield has improved significantly.

The reaction of the cows immediately after installation speaks for itself – find out more in the field report including a video from the barn »

KRAIBURG focus: Cubicle flooring - is there a golden way?

If the maintenance condition of deep bedded cubicles deteriorates, this influences the lying behaviour, the lying position and the total lying time of cows. In this case, an elevated cubicle with soft rubber mats is a good alternative.

KRAIBURG focus: The outer claw has to be relieved!

KRAIBURG focus: The outer claw has to be relieved!

The outer claw of cows is naturally ca. 2 - 3 mm longer than the inner claw. On a hard floor, this outer claw must bear the pressure peak of the cow's full weight on its own. On soft floor it can sink in and overloading can be prevented.

KRAIBURG MONTA: extra grip for steep passages

KRAIBURG MONTA has been specially developed for steep passages with a slope of more than 6 %. The cows often enter such steep passages with a certain unease. To give the animals a better foothold when walking up and down, the mat has a V-shaped, raised rib profile that also facilitates the drainage of liquids.
