VEAL FLOORING SOLUTIONS DESIGNED BY EASYFIX
Veal flooring designed by EASYFIX comes highly recommended by Hans & Marloes Luijerink. The Luijerinks operate a long established and successful rosé veal Calf Company with over 3,200 calves. Approximately 8 years ago the couple started to experiment with various veal flooring solutions, installing a number of different types on their farm in order to find the best solution for them. In 2012 they installed EASYFIX Veal Slat Rubber and have found it to be the ultimate welfare-friendly veal stable floor solution.
EASYFIX – THE ULTIMATE WELFARE-FRIENDLY VEAL FLOORING
EASYFIX Veal Slat Rubber stood out to the Luijerinks and they made the decision to continue installing it in many more of their barns after they tried and tested the product over time. The rubber has now been installed for over 6 years and is in use in several of their barns. Both Hans and Marloes are of the belief that it provides excellent results and are very satisfied that it is a socially responsible and welfare-friendly option by offering the calves an increased level of protection and enhanced comfort.
According to Hans the calves behave naturally on the rubber and are more playful when compared with those housed on wooden or concrete flooring. The Luijerinks have observed far less leg issues and are happy to confirm that they have almost completely eliminated any carpal joint issues that they had prior to installing the EASYFIX veal slat rubber.
VEAL FLOORING THAT PROVIDES RESULTS
The most noticeable difference the Luijerinks have witnessed is that their growth rates have increased, by about 3/4 kg per slaughtered calf. This makes an invaluable difference and they believe the calves really benefit from the EASYFIX flooring and that most importantly they are getting a valuable return on their investment.
