Comfort Slat Mat incorporate a patented Air-cushioned design that brings the comfort of outdoors-indoors. Comfort Slat Mat is 100% recyclable.
- Dryer and cleaner animals
- Maximum comfort and minimum slip of the animals
- Faster and better distribution of the animal waste along the full length of the slat
- Significant reduction in injuries and lameness
- Better feeding cycle as animals can lie & stand without fear of injury
- Increased weight gains (up to 0.30 kg. Per day)
- Enhanced mounting activity and increased duration of standing heat
- Unique curved design reduces ammonia emissions by up to 50% by eliminating the waste, normally retained on the flat surface, and removal to the tank underneath.
- The patented ammonia valve fitted to the mat reduces significantly the ammonia emissions that would come from the slurry underneath by stopping its release into the atmosphere and ensuring its retention in the slurry contained in the tank.
Reduce Lameness Incidents
Dutch Hoof Health Study 2013 & AFBI Study of Lameness on Dairy Farms 2011 Report illustrates the significant improvement and reduction of lameness when Dairy Cattle are housed on Comfort Slat Mat’s ‘Green Floor System’ when compared to those housed on Solid Concrete Slats.
- 5% Lameness observed on the ‘Green Floor System’
- 32% Lameness observed on concrete slats
- €1414 cost of lameness on the ‘Green Floor System’ ¹
- €9051 cost of lameness on concrete slats ¹
- ¹ Based on herd of 100 animals
