Dairy Yard
Matting

Numat dairy yard matting adds a new dimension to cow health and well- being, herding the animals towards the milking shed with surety and comfort.

The natural rubber surface replicates the feel of real pasture, immediately putting the animals at ease and reducing the incidence of lameness and falls. Cleaning is easy, using half the water than you would with concrete.
