How Much Are Rubber Dairy Cow Mats?

Lisa Hobbie // 2020

Keeping your livestock healthy, safe, and comfortable is likely one of your top priorities if managing a dairy farm. Using dairy cow mats is one way to do just that. Dairy cow mats are designed to keep barn floor and stall areas cleaner, warmer, more comfortable for the cattle. 

They provide traction that helps prevent the cows from slipping, and they make for a solid surface that helps keep the cows from falling. If cows are kept in a free stall for resting and lying down, dairy cow mats provide insulation and cushioning benefits. They are also used in a milking parlour environment to keep cows more comfortable as they stand for long periods, making the time it takes to give their milk less harsh on their bodies. There are a number of great dairy cow mats at Greatmats.
