KURA walkway floorings

KURA Proesen

KURA Proesen

“With four milking robots we have free cow traffic. The cows need to be able to walk well to get there.”

Waldemar Dietrich, Agricultural company Prösen, Germany

KURA Horber

KURA Horber

“I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t heard about the mats. That investment was definitely worthwhile.”

Beat Horber, Hugelshofen, Switzerland

KURA Tomb

KURA Tomb

“We observe that the animals have a high confidence in the floor, because they often quit running, jumping and do bulling on each other.”

Einar Østmo, Tomb agricultural School, Norway

KURA Boese

KURA Boese

„This is comfort! And comfort is an important prerequisite for a cow to feel good and be productive.”

Henning Böse, Bassum, Germany

KURA Arenenberg

KURA Arenenberg

“First buy the mats for the cubicle house, then a new tractor, because rubber is more effective – after all the cows produce milk every single day.”

Karl Wyrsch, Agricultural School Arenenberg, Salenstein, Switzerland

KURA Hartpury

KURA Hartpury

“After over eight years of continual use the floor looks as good as new and has retained its softness, grip and showing no signs of wear. Now that’s what I call value for money!”

Peter Lord, Hartpury College, UK

KURA Laabs

KURA Laabs

“Natural cow movement positively affects heat detection and through this we have achieved higher pregnancy rates.”

Hans-Heinrich Laabs, Knüllwald-Remsfeld, Germany

KURA Meyer

KURA Meyer

“Since we’ve had KRAIBURG mats in the rotary parlour, the cows like to walk in and they stand comfortably and calmly. Even when it’s moist, the cows have good footing, because their claws sink in.”

Mathias Meyer, Hude, Germany

KURA Rickland

KURA Rickland

“With rubber it is more comfortable for the cows. They eat more since then and show their heat more often than on concrete floor before.”

Herdsman Rick, Rickland Farms, Eldorado/Wisconsin, USA

KURA Dandl

KURA Dandl

“Ever since instalment we’ve been very satisfied with the mats – especially with their good quality. We believe that they will continue to perform their function well for a very long time.“

Dandl farm, Asten, Germany

KURA Milchgut Triebtal

KURA Milchgut Triebtal

“Important is the pain-free, comfortable and safe walking!“

Mr. Stöckel, manager at „Milchgut Triebtal“ farm, Falkenstein/Trieb, Germany

KURA Schmucki

KURA Schmucki

“Within one year we noticed considerable improvements in the claws, which resulted in a significant increase in milk yield of about 300 kg per cow and year.”

Andreas and Franz Schmucki, Münchwilen TG, Switzerland

KURA Vorbuchner

KURA Vorbuchner

“After mat installation the cows soon became much more active and felt good. I would absolutely recommend the mats to everybody!”

Hans Vorbuchner, Reischach, Germany

KURA Flankkila

KURA Flankkila

“Thank you very much for good quality products. Cows really move like they do on pasture. Cows don’t get hurt even if they fall.”

Timo Flankkila, Kärsämäki, Finnland

KURA Gemmer

KURA Gemmer

“The cows clearly prefer the rubber mats. They only stand on concrete, when there is no room on the rubber.”

Michael Gemmer, Romrod, Germany

KURA Brandstetter

KURA Brandstetter

“It is especially important with the milking robot that the cows walk well and like to walk, because otherwise they don’t go for milking on their own.”

Leonhard and Theresa Brandstetter, Polling, Germany

KURA Double S Dairy

KURA Double S Dairy

“I think the rubber areas are very comfortable for the legs and claws of the cows. They always wait with walking until there is room on the rubber strips.”

Piedro Lopez, Double S Dairy, Markesan/Wisconsin, USA

KURA Hollersbacher

KURA Hollersbacher

“You simply notice that the cows feel good. And when the cows feel good, it is reflected in the milk yield. Last but not least, you also save on veterinary costs.”

Leopold and Marianne Hollersbacher, Tarsdorf, Austria

KURA Kartop Skara

KURA Kartop Skara

“Our experience is only positive in all aspects. Everybody should have rubber in the cubicle house!”

Sven Jansson, Kårtorp farm, Skara, Sweden

Feitzinger farm, Straßwalchen, Austria
