Rotary Platform
Mats

It is critical to provide an anti-slip, comfortable milking platform for cows to stand on during the business end of the process.

Numat rubber has a proven grip surface so cows are calmer when standing. And it’s warmer, quieter and more comfortable. This all adds up to improved animal flow, faster milking and increased milk production. But most of all reduced the risk of the cow slipping off the platform.
