Stand Off &
Feed Pad
Matting

Stand Off Pads and Feed Pads are becoming increasingly popular with New Zealand dairy farmers. It’s not surprising – the pads protect pastures, conserve grass and minimise mud.

Our matting provides the ideal covering surface for both indoor and outdoor feedlots. It replicates the feel of real pasture, making cows more comfortable, more confident and more productive.
