Rubber flooring boosts cow comfort

Cows don’t hesitate to enter the parlor at Danielewicz Dairy Farm in Sanborn, N.Y., since the dairy installed an interlocking rubber floor, says Flevie Danielewicz, owner of the 900-cow dairy.

Danielewicz also had the rubber flooring installed over the entire concrete floor of a 640-cow free-stall facility built last October. He’s been pleased with the results ever since. Most noticeably, the flooring has saved cows from slipping. “We haven’t had a cow go down yet,” Danielewicz says. In addition, the flooring provides traction for a cow in heat, so she can stand when mounted by a herdmate.

The dairy purchased the flooring and had it installed by Folkema Sales, an Animat dealer based in Ontario, Canada. To contact, call (519) 485-4288.
