Creating a Comfortable Environment for Cattle

Those in the dairy business know that comfortable, healthy animals produce more milk. How can flooring help? Facility owners realize that it is imperative to their operation to keep animals injury-free, and uneven, cracked surfaces can cause lameness or other harm. If animals need to recover from injuries, they can lose weight and produce less milk. Epoxy floor coatings can reduce the likelihood of harm and help keep animals healthy. The right epoxy floor coating in a milk parlor can reduce wear and tear on cows’ hooves, while simultaneously providing a safe, slip-resistant walking surface.

Our dairy facility flooring has other advantages as well, including:

  • Imperviousness to milk, lactic acid and water
  • Outstanding scratch, abrasion and impact resistance
  • Impressive point load capacity
  • Option of antimicrobial FloroSeptic protection throughout the depth of the flooring material. FloroSeptic creates conditions that bacteria and fungi find inconducive to growth and propagation.
  • Very easy maintenance with steam-cleanable options available
  • Moisture-tolerant dairy flooring options

 

Safety & Protection for Livestock

When it comes to dairy facility flooring, milking parlor owners must make sure their flooring system supports sanitation protocols, in order to keep cows healthy and milk production hygienic. Our USDA-compliant poured flooring is virtually seamless and without grout lines where germs and mold can hide, making it an ideal option for parlors.  Our formaldehyde-free formulas produce no outgassing after full cure, contributing to overall better air quality for animals and humans.
