EASYFIX VEAL SLAT RUBBER DESIGNED FOR CALF COMFORT
EASYFIX Veal Slat Rubber proves to be a welfare-friendly flooring option for veal calves in Holland. Elbert Wijnne is a farm manager on a veal calves farm in Beekzicht which is located in Holland. We visited the farm recently and got an insight into Elbert’s daily operations. Elbert informed of us of the benefits he has witnessed since the installation of the EASYFIX Slat Rubber.
The Holland farm has approximately 1,350 white veal calves which are divided into two separate age groups. Generally the calves are kept on the farm for up to 29 weeks and they deliver 2,350 calves annually. The farm was first established in 2013 and the EASYFIX Slat Rubber was installed at that time.
ADVANTAGES OF INSTALLING EASYFIX VEAL SLAT RUBBER
According to Elbert the main advantage of the EASYFIX rubber flooring is that it provides a better foothold for the animals, particularly the new born calves as it is much easier for them to stand on the rubber.
Elbert also mentioned that the floors are much softer, therefore are better for the calves’ well-being. Since the installation Elbert has noticed that he has fewer claw and hoof problems when compared to farms he had worked in previously who did not have EASYFIX Slat Rubber installed.
