AGRICOW internally manufactures Stall Mats and Dairy Flooring thanks to a big investment in machinery, moulds, and specialized software that puts us among the leading manufacturers of providers of market stalls all over the world.
The production process is constantly monitored and updated.
Our mats are ideal for walking areas, milking parlor, reception areas and corridors or in the small
It is particularly advantageous in areas where cows spend most of the time, because it reduces the pressure on the hooves and legs.
The AGRICOWS’ rubber mats have a slip-resistant surface and that provides a rough great friction as a function of movement, provide maximum traction facilitating greatly the movement
of cows in the barn. Studies and tests have shown in fact that cows walk faster and slip much less on the rubber floor.
70% of cows walking on concrete floor glide at least slip once, but only 20% slip when walking on the rubber mats AGRICOW.
The rubber mats AGRICOW ensure a drier and cleaner environment for hygiene optimum improves the condition of the hooves and is easy to install anywhere. Even more than the technical characteristics and peculiarities practices recognized by breeders met, showed a significant reduction in accidents and veterinary costs.
Models of rubber mats:
Mats 4 straight sides or puzzle
Tailor-made for every slatted floor design

"It is the right cow floor!" "Feed intake increase over 3,5 kilos" Farmer in Bergamo

The tests which were carried out on two products are:
Resistance to abrasion:
The rubber mat Agricow was subjected to an abrasion test by using a kind of sandpaper to which it was applied a pressure of up to 500N a total area of 61.5 cm2 (equivalent to approximately 8.13 N/cm2 1Kg/cm2).
The depth abrasion, after 20,000 rotations in both directions was equal to 3.2 mm or 17% of the total thickness. There were removed in total 8.7gr of material.
Test result: Resistance to abrasion +
Through special instruments it was decided to simulate the slip resistance both in the presence of wet and dry. The speed of travel was 20 mm/s.
The test showed good slip resistance on both wet rubber to dry.
The friction coefficient was above the minimum threshold of 0.45 μ.
Test result: Slip resistance +
