Walking area mats: Safety & healthy hooves

KRAIBURG walking area mats are specially designed to meet the natural needs of cattle:

It is soft and animal friendly, thereby improving hoof health and sure-footedness. The cows express their gratitude through increased activity and enhanced performance. Lame-free cows are more fertile and have a positive impact on work and costs. Animal-friendly walking areas pay for themselves!

Relief to the hoof

Hard ground inevitably causes pressure peaks, especially at the rear outer claw and results in an incorrect load. Our rubber flooring ensures a natural sinking depth of about 3 mm. Pressure measurements carried out by the University of Leipzig on cattle hooves confirmed that pressure peaks on rubber are much smaller than on concrete. This results in enhanced pressure distribution and is comparable to the effect of walking on a pasture.

Improved hoof health

Cattle are soft soil walkers by nature. Cows experience greater support on elastic ground and their hooves are also relieved thanks to enhanced pressure distribution. Our rubber mats are specially designed to meet these needs. This leads to a significant decrease in mechanical‐traumatic hoof damage.

Higher milk yield

The more comfortable and slip resistant the walking areas, the more active the cows in the barn. As a result, the cows not only feed more, their hooves are also healthier. Overall, these are the various positive aspects that contribute to a greater milk yield. A study by the Van Hall Institute in the Netherlands demonstrated a milk yield increase of about 3.3% per year thanks to improved walking comfort.

Natural animal behavior

It is well proven that cows walk more each day on rubber flooring than on concrete. Other natural cow behavior, such as licking on three legs to care for the skin in the udder‐thigh gap, also increases. Important for fertility management: On species‐appropriate soft walking areas, cows in heat mount or ride others more often, making estrus detection much easier.

Better fertility

More frequent mounting facilitates estrus detection. This helps to improve fertility performance on the farm. The figures speak for themselves: For instance, the calving‐to‐conception interval can be reduced significantly by using rubber mats in the walking alley.

KURA P paid for itself after just 15 months

"Within one year, we noticed considerable improvements in the hooves. Due to the distinctively increased milk yield of about 300 kg per cow each year, the investment in KURA P paid for itself after just 15 months!"

Schmucki farm, Münchwilen, Switzerland

Highly recommended

"With the KURA P rubber mats, the cows are much more active and feel great. We’re still seeing all the benefits that the rubber mats offered right from the start, even after more than 15 years."

Happy with KURA P, even after 15 years

"We’re still very happy with KRAIBURG rubber mats, even after 15 years. The willingness to walk and sure-footedness of our cows have a positive effect on estrus detection, enabling us to achieve good pregnancy rates."

Brandstetter farm, Polling, Germany

Healthier animals and higher slaughter weight on KURA S

"The animals are healthier and grow better, they have a higher slaughter weight at the end of the fattening period due to the rubber mats and I can use my bongossi grates for longer. The cleaning time is significantly shorter now and the consumption of water has also decreased considerably."

Our calves are very clean

"The KURA S and KURA SB mats are dry and clean. Thus, the calves enjoy excellent sure-footedness. Moreover, the calves remain very clean on the mats."
