Why rubber mats in sow houses?

Existing floors in farrowing houses are often slippery and hard.

shoulder ulcer
  • with fear of slipping sows get up less
    → decreased feed and water intake
    → increased risk of MMA (mastitis-metritisagalactiae syndrome)
    → rearing performance gets worse
  • increased crushing losses
  • lying too long in one position increases the risk of shoulder ulcer formation
    → inflammations and pain lower sow performance

Rubber mats decisively contribute to the animal's well being, as well as to their health!
