MOVING FLOOR IS AUTOMATIC CLEANING
Moving Floor is automatic cleaning. Automatically cleaning 15 times per day increases hygiene, saves labor and improves production results.
Automatic cleaning stops bacteria growth, which has shown to be of importance for animal growth and production results.
We take calf rearing as an example: By increasing the hygiene the calves are healthier. Healthy calves covert feed more efficiently and calves on Moving Floor tend to grow 20-30% quicker during first months in life. This can lead to a lowered insemination age and savings of about 25% per raised heifer.
Minimum 50% work reduction
Increased hygiene makes healthy animals
Increased growth rate
20-30% increased average daily gain on calves until weaning
Reduced recruitment cost
25% reduction of costs per raised heifer
Did you know that the growth of bacteria in manure occurs exponentially? In order to prevent bacterial growth the manure must be quickly removed from the barn. We did tests to check bacterial growth in cubicles. The result shows many millions more bacteria in a conventional cow stall than a Moving Floor cubicle.
The inspiration behind the Moving Floor came from a TV program about the gnues on the African savannah. They live thousands of animals together, but are very rarely sick. The reason: They wander over large areas and never stay in their own or others’ manure. The solution is movement!
