Fa. Van Esch
Concrete cowshed floors get slippery when they get older. Because of this the cows can slip and injure themselves. On a slippery floor it’s very difficult to recognise when a cow is on heat. Also the cows visit the manger less frequent (see picture 1 for the difference between a floor with and a floor without treatment).
A cow with strong and healthy paws is active so she can eat more food. Therefore a cow with healthy paws is a healthy cow. To make sure your cows are healthy a new method has been developed.
This new method involves making the floor of the shed rough by grinding grooves into the concrete. The grooves are approximately 1,5 to 2,0 mm deep and 3,0 mm broad. The spaces between the grooves are 4,5 mm broad. Because of this the grooves are extra strong and will stay that way (see picture 2). Because of the large spaces between the grooves it’s also possible to grind the floor horizontal as well as vertical at the turning points of the cattle so they will have a better grasp on the floor (see picture 3). Also, this way of grinding the floor will make sure the paws of the cows wear out evenly. This method is applicable on all sorts of shed floors.
