KURA walkway flooring for dairy cows – field report

Andreas and Franz Schmucki, Münchwilen TG, Switzerland

10 years KRAIBURG KURA P walking alley flooring made of rubber in the dairy cow cubicle house, Schmucki farm, SwitzerlandProfile:

  • 80 dairy cows
  • paved concrete walkways with 280 m² KURA P
  • since 2002
Andreas and Franz Schmucki:

“We used to have walkways covered with mastic asphalt. It had become rough and
the cows practically had no more claws. Back then KRAIBURG rubber mats were
recommended to us.

Within one year we noticed considerable improvements in the claws. There was something there again for trimming. This resulted in a significant increase in milk yield of about 300 kg per cow and year.

We saw them mounting again. We are very pleased. The cows stand well, some animals literally jump and the young animals run little “loose housing races.” All in all the investment was profitable and we would do it again.”

We calculated this for you:

Assuming an increased milk yield of 300 kg per cow and year, this means that the investment in KURA P was paid off in 15 months.
