After his old mats had been worn out, Timo chose WINGFLEX from KRAIBURG in 2009. It was important to him that the amount of work in the cow house kept manageable without his animals having to sacrifice comfort.
Now Timo has realized that after the installation of the mats – without having changed anything else – he produces approx. 3 % more milk.
With the higher milk yield from increased lying comfort, the lying mats paid themselves off within a short period of time.

paved concrete walkways with KURA P
"We used to have walkways covered with mastic asphalt. It had become rough and the cows practically had no more claws. Back then KRAIBURG rubber mats were recommended to us.
Within one year we noticed considerable improvements in the claws. There was something there again for trimming.
This resulted in a significant increase in milk yield of about 300 kg per cow and year. We saw them mounting again.
We are very pleased. The cows stand well, some animals literally jump and the young animals run little "loose housing races". All in all the investment was profitable and we would do it again."
The claw health has strongly improved in a short period of time. Due to the distinctively increased milk yield the investment in KURA P has already amortized after 15 months.
