Rubicle – The Cow Comfort Cubicle

The Rubicle has all the qualities of our standard Super Loop/ Cantilever Cow Cubicle with a soft-touch cover protecting the steel to provide your cow’s extra comfort while housed. This will encourage cows to spend more time lying on the cubicle bed which will, in turn, get the cow to produce more milk and increase profitability.


Indexing

The point of a cubicle first and foremost is to index cows properly. Proper indexing means the cow lies squarely on the bed reducing soiling, accidental teat damage to a neighbouring cow and maximising cow spaces. Some flexible cubicles on the market seem to have gone away or forgotten this resulting in damage to teats, loss of cow spaces with cows occupying 1 and a half or 2 spaces which also results in more beds to be cleaned and a large drop in overall herd health. Your cow cubicles should be designed to promote cleaner conditions, thus helping to maintain the health of your herd. We provide cubicles that are designed to do just this, giving greater control over where the cows urinate and defecate to ensure this is done in the passageway rather than in the cubicle bed. This is the purpose of a cubicle.

There are four options to mount the Rubicle:

  • Head-To-Head Post & Rail Mounted Cubicles
  • Single Line Post & Rail Mounted cubicles
  • Channel mounted cubicles.
  • Z rail wall mounting Cubicles

Cubicle Quality

The Rubicle cover is a soft-touch rubber cover protecting the steel to provide your cow’s extra comfort while housed. Our cubicles are manufactured out of 3.65mm heavy-wall 60mm galvanised pipe. The German-manufactured pipe is what gives the cubicle its longevity. It is a more expensive raw material, but the quality is unmatched. We have tested a galvanised pipe from all over the world. We have found that cubicles made from cheaper or lighter pipe result in hairline cracks and flaking when put through the manufacturing process. The lifetime value and quality just do not compare to the European-manufactured pipe. Our cubicles will stand the test of time and cattle with up to two or three times the life span of some cubicle options out there.

Hugh MacEneaney, Teagasc Dairy Adviser, Mullinavat, Co Kilkenny

“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.”
