Cow Comfort Mats

When a cow is lying on the ground, the animal supports 80% of its body weight in a “tripod” stance, with the three supports formed by two knees and one pastern. If outdoor, nature itself provides a comfortable padding of turf for cows. When a cow gets up, it leaves depressions in the ground, which show how much pressure the animal applies through its knees and pastern. The concrete floors in cowsheds, lined only with a thin layer of bedding, provide a hard and usually uncomfortable surface to rest on. The discomfort caused by resting on the concrete is stressful, and reduces the time in which a cow is willing to lie down. This can harm milk yield.

JFC cow-comfort mats prevent clavi and sores, which improves the overall condition and health of cows.
