Pack Mat – the solution to deep bed

Have you seen our Pack Mat system?
The Pack mat is a mattress installed below the level of the curb.  It stabilises the bed and ensures the comfort of a deep bedded system with the management, and cost, of only a few inches.  It is particularly good for sand beds.

In this unit they have 450 cows.  Normally they would expect to use 8 tons per cow/year, however now the Pack Mat has reduced the sand usage to 3.6 t/cow/year.  This is a considerable saving in labor and management.
 
Additionally, you can see that the beds are consistent so the positioning of the cows is superior to a deep bedded system.
