The Benefits of Promat Mattress Systems
Promat’s primary focus is on maximizing herd health. If a cow is housed in an environment that allows her to behave and act naturally, her overall welfare will improve and she will produce more milk.
Promat’s mattress solutions offer a lying surface that facilitates natural movement by the cow, allowing her get up and down easily while providing optimal comfort while lying down. The result is an overall increase in lying time, improved rumination and ultimately more milk.
Additional benefits of Promat’s solutions include:
- Reduction of lameness and hock sores, which lead to reduced vet bills and higher quality of milk
- Worry free maintenance – unlike other sand or compost-based solutions, Promat’s solutions require minimal time and effort to maintain which reduces overall labour and material costs
