The Jupiter F Cow Mattress is a World-First for optimising Cow-Comfort!

The Award-winning Jupiter F is the World’s most comfortable cow mattress. A freestall mattress designed to provide superior levels of cow comfort. The innovative and unique design of the freestall mattress features an integrated brisket board at the front and pillows on both sides of the mat.

The cow mattress has a 45mm layer of PU latex foam, which creates a cushioned top surface providing maximum cow comfort with a deflection of up to 33mm. The back of the mat has a sloped, non-abrasive profile which allows animal waste to be easily pushed into the passageway. The mattress has been specially designed with a hidden interlock to create a seamless finish.

    Enhances Cow Comfort & Welfare

    By encouraging a comfortable lying position for cows in the freestall bed. Cows can stretch their front legs for maximum comfort.

    Increases productivity

    Increased lying times = higher milk yields. Research shows that cows can lie for up to 14 hours a day. Therefore, the more comfortable you make the cows environment, the longer they will lie.

    Why buy a mattress over a cheaper rubber mat?
    Cows can lie for up to 14 hours per day – the more comfortable you make the cubicle the longer they will lie. Cows produce 5 times more milk lying down versus standing.
    What makes the EASYFIX Jupiter F mattress a superior mattress choice?
    • Top Cover – Top-skin thickness is a very important aspect of a mattress. The EASYFIX Jupiter F mattress has a top-skin thickness of a minimum 12mm. Most continuous mattress roll systems have a top-skin thickness of between 3mm to 6mm.
    • Foam Mattress – Not only has the Jupiter F a thicker top-skin thickness than most competing mats, it also has a 45mm mattress underneath. The mattress consists of 50% latex and 50% polyurethane and is encased in a 500-micron sealed wrapper which prevents moisture from seeping in. Tests conclude that our latex is certified to only lose 2% elasticity over a 10-year period. Competitors, if they know, will typically use 80:20 latex/polyurethane split as this is a cheaper option and the memory and elasticity of the latex will deteriorate over a shorter period of time.
    • Brisket Board – The Jupiter F Mattress has a world’s first built-in brisket board. This unique feature prevents the cow from laying too far forward, while the ‘pillows’ on the side help to keep the cows straight in the bed. Keeping the cows in the correct position helps to ensure that the beds stay clean which helps save on labour and associated costs.
    • Interlocking System – The Jupiter has a secret interlock on it which seals the joint and prevents any bedding or moisture getting in to the joint.
    Does the mattress prevent hock damage?
    EASYFIX have designed a top-surface finish to the mattress which provides a good level of grip but that is also non-abrasive to cows’ hocks. This is the opposite to canvas type mattress surfaces that can cause hock damage which has implications for herd health and in particular fertility.
    How can I test for comfort?
    The EASYFIX Jupiter F mattress has a DLG deflection reading of 33mm (1.3”). Cows typically transfer 70% of their bodyweight to their two front knees and free fall 18-24” to the mattress. To get an idea of the cushioning effect cows enjoy on our Jupiter F mattress you can do the simple ‘knee test’ to test for comfort. Simply drop to your knees onto the mattress top and observe the deflection of the mat around the impacted area.
    How do you clean the mattress?
    The Jupiter F has a smooth and sloped 6 inches at the rear of the mat which aids run-off and for ease of cleaning. Additionally, hand-scrapers, brushes or mechanically propelled cubicle bedders can be used.
    Can you use lime or other absorbent material with them?
    It is recommended with all cubicle mat or mattress systems to use a bedding material such as saw dust or lime. This will absorb any liquid run off, ensure beds remain dry and material with antibacterial agents or lime will ensure bacteria growth is lowered and therefore keep SCC low, and prevent mastitis.

    • We’ve had less trouble with feet and no trouble with hocks. Lying time has increased dramatically. If we were to do anything else again, we’d always go for EASYFIX Freestalls and mattresses.
