Facts worth knowing about KRAIBURG rubber floorings / mats for cows, bulls and calves

Emission reduction:

potential solutions

Reduction of ammonia emissions

Urine on walking areas is the main source of ammonia formation in the barn. It is therefore necessary to dissipate it quickly (via a slope, smooth surface, etc.). On hard ground animals tend to slip quickly.

Our rubber mats specially developed to reduce emissions also offer animal-friendly softness as well as the necessary grip and promote dry claws!

 

How can ammonia emissions be reduced?

  • rapid urine draining combined with frequent cleaning
  • minimizing of soiled surfaces, e.g. elevated feed stalls (see LENTA »)

Slit reduction for slatted floors

  • Covering slits with slat mat reduces outgassing from the slurry pit

  • Due to the slope in the mat surface towards the slit urine flows off quickly

  • Walking areas become drier overall
