Outdoor Matting

Improving the welfare of livestock with outdoor rubber matting

New Zealand is the largest exporter of dairy, making us industry leaders. We want to support its progress of increasing its sustainability and care towards the charming creatures at the start of the production line.

The productivity of the dairy farm increases with happier, healthier cows. The agricultural matting that we provide mitigates the hazards of concrete floors, stones, and inefficient tracks.

Benefits of rubber matting

There are many advantages to providing a safe environment for your livestock with AgMats. Knowing that your cows are relaxed is rewarding enough in itself, but it is also great for the flow in production – and more cost-effective.

Better cattle flow

Reducing hold-ups in flow is far more achievable when the track is safe. Rubber matting functions like artificial grass, covering any hazardous surface around your farm. Further, fewer injuries, lameness, and fear create confident cows and the steady issue of cattle all around the farm.

More milk

Extensive research proves that improving cattle welfare also improves the quality and quantity of milk supply. Happy cows:

  • Go into heat more often
  • Are more likely to have calves
  • Are more likely to produce premium milk

Better cow safety

Our products are designed to be placed on hazardous surfaces on your farm and are very easy to install. Adding livestock rubber mats to your farm decreases slippage by up to 80%, providing a far safer space for your cattle to move around in. 

The rubber surface mimics the soft buoyancy of grass and reduces the impact of walking and standing. It is gentler on the sensitive tissue within hooves than grey concrete or stones. 

Cows are far less likely to slip over on the rubber mat, reducing unnecessary – and traumatic – injuries.

 How do outdoor mats work?

At AgMats, we use recycled rubber. We provide options with different features to suit every need. Our products can come as interlocking mats or with customisable widths and 30-meter lengths.

Our Dairy Grip rolls are particularly suitable for outdoor use. Reinforced with integral steel cables, it is super heavy-duty, easy to clean, and guaranteed to withstand a daily influx of cattle for a minimum of twenty years. This system prevents breakdown, stretching, and warping – and can withstand all kinds of weather, from snow to hot sun.

These mats can go outside, along walkways, in the dairy, milking sheds, and holding yards. Industrial rubber mats can withstand heavy impact from livestock and machinery such as tractors, automatic scrapers or skid steers easily, thanks to the steel cable system within. 

Installation only takes a few hours, and we can do it for you, whatever the location of your farm. If you would prefer to do it yourself, we are happy to come along and assist with our expert services.

Both the cable and the grooving systems are carefully designed for longevity. Our product has been in use for nearly twenty years and is proven to last four times longer than other rubber mats.
