Huber Technik Soft Bed System Cow Mat
Our Cow Mat is DLG tested and certified. The test center technology and farm inputs of DLG (German Agricultural Society) is an independent test company in Frankfurt. DLG performed the following “Fokus Tests”
Deformability & Elasticity Test
Evaluates softness, comfort, and elasticity of a rubber mat before use and after simulating 10 years of normal use.
Permanent Tread Load Test
Evaluates the top and bottom surface wear and softness of a rubber mat after simulating 10-years of normal use. Artificial Cow’s foot exerts 2,200 pounds of downward pressure.
Evaluates top-surface wear resistance of a rubber mat after simulating 10 years of normal use. It exerts 110 pounds of downward pressure onto the mat.
Slip Resistance Test
Evaluates top-surface grip of a rubber mat. Surface grip prevents a cow from slipping.
Hugh MacEneaney, Teagasc Dairy Adviser
“Good facilities allow farmers to expand production and incomes and add to the asset value of the farm. They also lead to a better quality of life for the farm family by reducing the workload and the drudgery. In many cases, particularly on dairy farms, buildings pay for themselves over a 7-10 year period. This is especially true when capital grant and tax savings are available.”
