Comfortable Cows means more milkA comfortable cow is more likely to be healthy, productive and free of the stress caused by continuous discomfort. Pasture Mat provides a stall surface that is resilient - without the bounce or sponginess of artificial materials. It provides a firm footing for your cows with no pillowing inwards and is an ideal surface for bedding materials such as chopped straw, compost, wood shavings or sawdust.
In preliminary observed data, cows showed a marked preference for Pasture Mat over other available stall comfort/flooring products. Research is continuing and results will be supplied on request as available.
Everything a farmer does is dependent upon the ability to produce more milk. This goal, however, should never overshadow the importance of the cow’s well-being. On average a dairy cow spends about 14 hours a day at rest. If part or all of that lying time is stressed, uncomfortable or spent standing, the cows’ milk production can be significantly compromised
The dairy cow’s needs must be met first and foremost. Fulfilling theses needs is Promat’s philosophy to “design a free stall area that emulates the characteristics of pasture” by building a modern day free-stall barn.
To meet the cow’s needs, Promat has developed an optimal stall environment that mimics the natural pasture. Promat’s line up of cow beds including ; GELMAT DS, Pasture Mat®, Pack Mat™, Poly Pillow™, and Premium Pad™, combined with the correct stall dimensions creates the ultimate in cow comfort.
