IMPROVE HERD HEALTH AND SAVE SAND
Sand bedding levels in freestalls affect how much time cows spend lying down which can increase comfort and milk yield. A recent MSU study found that cows spent less time lying down as sand bedding levels decreased. It was further noted that for each 1 inch decrease in sand level below curb height cows spent 28 fewer minutes lying in freestalls.
Reduce your sand usage by up to 50%
Less stall maintenance:
With the solid base, cows have less of a tendency to dig in the sand, so the bed does not “belly out.” Traditionally, a lot of labor is spent evening out the sand bed. With the Agri-Sand Saver Mat, the bed stays more level. Lucas Donkers of Rose Vega Farms says, “A 35-40 percent savings in sand use convinced us to install the Grid in the rest of our stalls. A level bed means that daily stall maintenance is dramatically reduced.”
Made from 100% virgin tire rubber compound
The product is only manufactured with new virgin tire rubber compound and is designed as a grid-like structure. The Agri-Sand Save Mat is an excellent alternative to conventional open stall bases. The rubber tiles absorb pressure from the weight of the animal, alleviating stress on joints and muscles. The placement of the tiles assists in preventing the formation of deep ruts from constant digging, and the spacing allows for sand to sit in-between the tiles for a porous solution and product stability.
