In 2004 the new dairy cow cubicle house with a milking robot was constructed. The walkways were covered with KURA P.
“Natural cow movement positively affects heat detection and through this we have achieved higher pregnancy rates.
Furthermore, cow activity is very important on our farm, because they have to walk voluntarily and more often to get milked than on farms with a conventional milking system. On the average we have a 3.5 milking frequency per cow and day. This proves that our cows like to walk on KRAIBURG rubber mats.
Also the official vet noticed immediately, how relaxed and straight backed the cows walk and not – as can be observed on many other farms – tread cautiously ahead with arched backs. The claw trimmer is enthusiastic about how nicely shaped and healthy the claws are. He only has to trim them, not treat them.
The cubicle house is now about 8 years old, the mats have been there the whole time. We are still very satisfied and have only had positive experiences until now. The mats look like they did in the beginning and have never been torn out, although the scraper runs often. In the meantime we installed KURA P again in the extension.”
