Our Research & Development department intensively works on the development of bite-optimized rubber mats for pig keeping.
To start with, we tested non bite-optimized cattle rubber mats in order to gain results on the positives effects of rubber mats for pigs.
We have installed and tested several proto-types in sow houses in the field and research stations. That makes us sure about the great benefits for animals and farmers alike. From this development work finally came out the first bite-optimized rubber mats for sows in the farrowing house: PORCA fix ».
As the subject floor condition is becoming more important in pig keeping as well, there has been done some research meanwhile and independent scientific studies confirm the positive effects of rubber floorings.
