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.
Were very happy with claw health.We simply dont have claw injuries like we did before in the tied stalls. Manure can still be swept easily through the slats, keeping the floor clean and dry all the time.
Within one yearwe noticed considerable improvements in the claws. Due to the distinctively increased milk yield of about 300 kg per cow and year, the investment in KURA P has already amortized after 15 months!
The quality of the KURA and pediKURA P mats is good. We still have the original mats from 2009 in the cattle house, and they show no signs of wear. The cows move well on the mats. Claw care is now more prophylactic, more about checking the claws.
