Martijn & Judith Voor De Poorte, Holland
VEAL RUBBER FLOORING SOLUTION DEVELOPED BY EASYFIX
Veal rubber flooring designed and developed by EASYFIX was chosen by the Voor de Poortes when designing their new barn. Martijn & Judith Voor de Poorte run a veal calf company in Noord-Brabant, Holland. They have approximately 800 veal calves, 400 for rearing and 400 for fattening. They deliver 1,200 calves each year.
VEAL RUBBER FLOORING IS WELFARE-FRIENDLY
In early 2018 the Voor De Poortes installed EASYFIX Veal slat rubber in their newly built barn by G. Van Beek & Co. They chose to invest in EASYFIX rubber flooring for the comfort of the veal calves and to prepare for the future. Both Martjin & Judith are already beginning to see positive results;
“The calves are very clean, and the rubber is very clean. The calves enjoy walking on the rubber flooring and are very calm. Leg problems have reduced because they walk more slowly and it is easy for them to move around the pen’’
EASYFIX VEAL SLAT RUBBER – VR 110/VR 130
EASYFIX Veal Slat Rubber – VR 110/VR 130 was designed in-house; it is a two strip rubber flooring covering for both concrete & wooden slats. The rubber covering is attached with our patented rubber wedge system. It features the ‘Gold Standard Soft Top’ and was developed specifically for the white and rosé veal industry.
The development of this product has been a major breakthrough, resulting in cleaner calves, improved levels of comfort and increased performance for veal calves which inevitably gives farmers greater results.
EASYFIX has over 20 years’ experience designing slat rubber products for beef and dairy animals weighing up to 1800 lbs/ 800kgs. The sloped surface of the specially designed veal slat rubber ensures the fast removal of waste material ensuring calves have a dry and clean surface to lie on. Air chambers on the underside create an insulating barrier, which improves the overall comfort of calves.
