What Are The Best Milking Parlour Mats for Pits?

Lisa Hobbie // 2020

Many large dairy farms feature milking parlours near or as a part of a barn. For a milking parlour to perform effectively and efficiently, milking parlour mats or speciality flooring should be used. Having milking parlour pit mats in place will help the workers experience a safe and non-slip footing as the mats have anti-fatigue properties for the operator, assist with proper drainage and air movement, and provide insulation and comfort in the pits. They also help make it easy to keep the milking parlour clean and maintain.
