As it is extremely durable and cut with precision water-jet technology, ensuring each tile fits perfectly with the next to create a seamless finish. With its durable softness and shock absorption, Numat matting provides increased productivity with a warmer, quieter, more comfortable environment. This leads to reduced stress, falls and lameness in your animals.
The durable, user-friendly rubber matting that is now installed at Raincliff Station allows for increased comfort for the deer and workers alike.
Dave Morgan, the owner of Raincliff Station, explains that they had had concrete floors and bark chip in the past, but that he had always wanted quality matting, like the kind that Numat offer, saying “I thought this was the Rolls Royce. We want to try and operate in that top 5% of operating deer farmers”.
In 2016, the staff at Thornicroft Station were experiencing a major problem with their mob’s legs. A lot of deer were showing up at the shed with swollen joints due to time spent on concrete. It was becoming a major issue as lame deer were costly to treat. Managing the problem was placing a drain on staff time and energy.
