"When it's warm, the elevated cubicles are always occupied first."
This statement can be heard from farmers who have both systems (elevated cubicles
and deep litter cubicles) in their cow house.
Depending on the milk yield, cows already suffer from heat stress at "pleasant" temperatures of 16 – 20 °C.
This is quickly noticeable when a striking number of animals is standing around in the walking alley. Also at
these temperatures, standing periods should be kept as short as possible, as the claws are additionally strained thereby.
Besides fans in the lying area, elevated cubicles with rubber mats can help to animate the animals to lie down.
The secret lies in the rubber, because the composition of rubber compounds varies enormously.

At high temperatures, the KRAIBURG comfort mats
help to dissipate excess heat from the lying animal.
In this way, lying comfort can be increased in summer because the rubber surface is significantly cooler than the manure mattress (deep litter cubicle).
