Prevents risks during calving
Thanks to the isolating characteristics of the mattress, both cow and calf are no longer coming into contact with the cold, concrete floor. On top of that the Cowhouse calving pen mattress is not slippery and therefore it offers sufficient traction when the cow is standing up. With this floor you will save a lot of costs for sawdust or straw, since you only have to use a small layer for absorbing moisture. The mattress is hygienic and easy to clean.
