KURA walkway flooring for dairy cows – field report

Hollersbacher farm, Tarsdorf, Austria

Leopold and Marianne Hollersbacher, Austria, field report 10 years KRAIBURG KURA walkway flooring made of rubber in the dairy cow cubicle houseProfile:

  • 48 dairy cows
  • slatted floor with pediKURA® S system
  • milking parlour with 20 m² KURA
  • since 2002

In 2000 the cows moved into the newly constructed cubicle house. Since 2002 the farm is on board as a test farm. The slatted floor was covered with the first KURA S variants. The latest variant has been in the cow house since 2006 and the system pediKURA® S was retrofitted as well.

Leopold and Marianne Hollersbacher:

"From the start we have been very satisfied with the mats. Actually we hadn’t had any problems, but have noticed that the mats have a positive effect anyway.

Since we also retrofitted with pediKURA®, it has had a beneficial effect on claw abrasion. Now we have the claws trimmed every 8 months, where before the claw trimmer came to our farm every 6 months.

I would not give the mats back. You simply notice that the cows feel good. They are fit, walk, jump, and are sometimes even rambunctious. Nevertheless, we have a pleasantly calm atmosphere in our cow house. The floor is not only soft, but also heat insulating, so that no cold draft rises up from the floor. This is comfortable for the sensitive cows, as well as for us.

And when the cows feel good, it is reflected in the milk yield. Last but not least, you also save on veterinary costs."
