KURA walkway flooring for dairy cows – field report

Gemmer farm, Romrod, Germany

Michael Gemmer, Germany, field report 10 years KRAIBURG KURA walking alley flooring made of rubber in the dairy cow cubicle houseProfile:

  • 100 dairy cows
  • paved concrete walkways with 450 m² KURA P
  • since 2003

Michael Gemmer’s whole cubicle housing floor has been covered with KURA P since 2003. He is convinced that the cows prefer to walk on rubber mats and walk more safely:

"This is a wonderful thing! The movement on the mats is ideal. The cows have better footing.

Cows clearly prefer rubber mats. They only stand on concrete, when there is no room on the rubber. Sometimes we have individual cows in the old cattle house on a concrete floor for a short time. You can directly observe the cows there looking around for a rubber covered floor.

After almost 9 years of usage in the cubicle house, the mats show no wear at all. Only the scraper shows some abrasion!"
