How a Waitaki farm stopped pugging with Cow Carpet

“The cows love it. There have been no rips or tearing and no mess – after a bit of rain it looks as good as new.”

Waitaki dairy farmer, Hamish McFarlane, had a continual issue with pugging on the lead on race to his herringbone cow shed. Annual maintenance costs were becoming a burden and Hamish was looking for a better solution.

We introduced Hamish to our recent innovation, “Cow Carpet”. It’s manufactured to suit lanes and comes in 5.2m wide rolls – ideal for his application.

Since installing Cow Carpet Hamish’s lanes have been held in good condition – but that’s not the only benefit of installing it. Treated with a specialized antibacterial agent, Cow Carpet reduces hoof disease and it’s soft padding underfoot is very gentle on cows hooves. It’s large size and the fact that it’s all in one piece make installing it easy.

Cow lanes  take a lot of wear everyday and in winter can quickly become muddy and hard to manage. Treat your lane and cows to a better surface with Cow Carpet.
