Pit
Matting

Soft matting helps take the pressure off the milker’s feet, legs and back, providing a smart alternative to cold, hard concrete.

When a milker continually works in an overstretched or physiologically unsuitable position for extended periods, musculoskeletal problems may occur. Milking should be easy, safe and pleasant, and it is important that the work station is designed to be ergonomically correct.

What may seem at first like an exaggeration makes perfect sense after he describes the tough times of recent years.

Wayne says KuraMat on his feedpads saved his farm. The wettest Waikato winter in 30 years meant he had to standoff his cows for a solid month. The result? He came through it with no cow losses, no pasture damage and no worries while others in the region without similar matting really suffered.
