Huber Technik Comfort Roll Cow Mat
Our Comfort Roll Cow Mat is made from 100% rubber compound which has not been vulcanized before. This rubber roll is made up of 15 mm rubber bungs and 5 mm of solid rubber to increase cow comfort (10.7 mm compression when the animal lays down).
All our individual 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 “Signum Tests” on Geyer & Hosaja rubber cow mats
Deformability & Eslasticity 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.
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are a group of over 100 different chemicals that are formed during the incomplete burning of coal, oil and gas, garbage, or other organic compounds. PAHs are known for their carcinogenic, mutagenic and teratogenic properties.
PAHs can be found in petrochemicals, rubber, plastics, lubricants, antirust oil, paints, leather and other products. Rubber and plastics are high risky materials containing PAHs. Huber is one of the only mats on the market that is PAH tested and certified.

“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.”
