VEAL FLOORING SOLUTIONS CREATED BY EASYFIX
EASYFIX Veal flooring solutions are designed with calf comfort in mind. Recently we visited one of our customers Elbert Wijnne who operates a veal calves company in Beekzicht, situated in Barneveld, Holland. Mr. Wijnne showed us around his farm, spoke to us regarding his daily operations and discussed the benefits he had observed since installing our EASYFIX veal slat rubber.
VEAL FLOORING SUITABLE FOR LARGE SCALE FARMING
The farm has 1,350 white veal calves in various age groups. Generally the calves are kept on the farm for up to 29 weeks. Elbert delivers approximately 2,350 white veal calves each year. The company was first established in 2013 and at that time EASYFIX veal slat rubber flooring was installed. According to Elbert it was an investment worth making as it has provided fantastic results in terms of growth rates and overall performance.
ADVANTAGES OF INSTALLING WELFARE-FRIENDLY FLOORING
Elbert has noticed various benefits since the installation of the veal slat rubber;
“The big advantage of EASYFIX rubber on the barn floors is that the calves have a better foothold, especially new-born calves. If a calf is weak, it is much easier for it to stand up on the EASYFIX flooring”
EASYFIX VEAL SLAT RUBBER – VR110/VR 130
Elbert Wijnne chose to install the EASYFIX Veal Slat Rubber – VR 110/ VR 130. The EASYFIX Veal Slat Rubber comes with a wide array of benefits & features which include an increase in calf comfort, welfare & performance. It leads to a reduction in lameness and swollen carpal joints in the calves. The sloped profile of the rubber encourages faster drainage which creates a dry lying surface inevitably leading to cleaner calves. All EASYFIX Veal Slat Rubber comes with a 5 year warranty.
