mayo anti-slip mat
The Mayo Anti-Slip Mat has a unique surface design. It is soft enough to allow animals to sink slightly into it, giving tremendous traction and therefore confidence to the animal. While there is a little more maintenance to the system vs. rubber, the benefit in confidence to the cows & cow flow makes up for it.
The Anti Slip Mat is extremely hygienic, just power wash any mess into the drain once milking is over. They are 100% non-absorbent so scientifically they cannot harbour any bacteria. Creating the safest, most hygienic environment for your herd.
The mats are roughly 24mm deep x 1.73m long x 1.22m wide.
