    Milking Parlour Pit
    Why should I install rubber in the milking parlour?
    Rubber in the milking parlour can deliver many benefits for both the farmer and the cow. Milking times are reduced, cow flow increased, cows don’t slip and get hurt, cows come into the parlour better.

    How is this possible?
    • The average gait length for a cow on concrete is 600mm, Grass is 800mm and rubber is also 800mm, this more natural movement and increased step length will move cows through the system at a faster pace.
    • Milk let down by cows is also improved through standing on a comfortable rubber surface versus hard, cold concrete, cows feel more relaxed.
    • Cows also come forward to the parlour easier as cows will opt to stand on rubber near the parlour entrance as opposed to concrete in the collecting yard.
    • All parlour designs usually require sharp turns by cows, typical herringbone parlours will have 90 degree turns, rotary platforms require a 180 degree turn etc. anywhere you ask a cow to turn it puts pressure on the claw, this is a main source of claw damage leading to digital dermatitis or white line lameness, the is caused because of the abrasive nature of concrete, whereas rubber provides a cushioned surface.
    Is it easy to clean?
    Cleaning time should be similar to concrete floors, all EASYFIX rubber is designed to withstand cleaning chemicals etc.
    How long will it last?
    With any rubber flooring it is vital to ensure that the correct mat is used in the correct area and understanding the volume of cows that are being milked will determine how long a product will last.

    Consider the traffic from a 1000 cow herd milked three times a day versus a 100 cow herd milked twice a day. 1.1m Cow passes V’s 73K passes per annum.

    EASYFIX strive to develop product that are durable and deliver value for money for customers- on average EASYFIX products should last 15+ years depending on application and traffic levels
