Comfort Slat Mats for Cattle, Cows, & Calves
Slat mats are the solution to the problem of unhealthy cattle. If you house your cattle in a pit barn, you should know that the concrete slats are very hard on the cattle and can cause them to develop lameness or become injured otherwise. These mats are designed to keep animals healthy and clean, and also to reduce ammonia emissions from the slatted floor of the pit barn. While other slat mats do not solve all of these problems - keeping the animals clean, reducing animal injury, and reducing ammonia emissions.
Some of the benefits that come from having Comfort Slat Mats installed in your cattle pit barn include:
- Reduced Ammonia Emission
- Improved Cattle Cleanliness
- Reduced Lameness and Injury
- Reduced Workload
- Durable Materials
- Retention of Nutrition in Waste
- Environmentally Friendly
- Spring Loaded System
- Increased Milk Yield
The curve of the slat mats allows them to have a cored center that allows waste to be removed quickly and easily to the tank below, helping to keep the animals clean. The mats are also anchored to the slats with a spring loaded system, which helps them stay in place and provides the cattle with a softer surface with more give to walk on. This also keeps the animals healthier to increase milk yield in dairy cows. The design of the floor also helps to keep the cows healthy by reducing lameness. Because slat mats remove waste so efficiently and the pit barn is able to contain the waste, there is little chance that environmental hazards will occur due to waste leakage. The mats are made of durable materials that will hold up well for years to come, giving you peace of mind. An added bonus to the Comfort Slat Mats from NextGen Group is that they reduce the amount of work that you have to do.
