For a stress-free and healthy calving, cow, calf and caregiver need the following things:
for calving pen / selection area
three-layer structure (rubber-foam-rubber)
→ softness and slip resistance for cow, calf and farmer
litter material is only necessary for absorbing liquids
approx. 50 dairy cows
elevated cubicles with KEW Plus and KKM
slatted floor with pediKURA® S system
milking parlour with KURA Flex
first, the border of the area is laid out with frame profiles
afterwards the frame profiles are fixed
the next step is to fill in the complete area with lower mats...
...then foam parts are placed on the lower mats
and now the top covering is rolled out...
after that, covering strips are placed on the top covering
finally the covering strips are fastened on the top covering with spax screws
"You can notice that the cows feel very good on the system. They are fitter after calving and they immediately stand up to lick their calf. The animals enjoy using the VITA for calving. Some of them even push us as they want to be lead into the calving box just before birth.
The system enables a good hygiene when calving. Furthermore you need considerably less litter material than previously on concrete."
