PREVENT YOUR COWS FROM DOING THE SPLITS!
Concrete Floor Grooving Helps Prevent Loss
One of the BIGGEST problem farmers face is losing cows that injure themselves doing the splits on slippery concrete!
When new cement is poured, most cement floor contractors will have grooves “floated” in the cement. The problem is that the grooves are rounded and they only go only in 1 direction.
Years of scraping and cleaning barn floor concrete can cause the floor to get polished and slick.
Another reason to groove concrete barn floors is that a cow can lose their footing while being “ridden” by another cow (through heat detection). Single cutting grooves in the cement provide minimal help ONLY if the cow slips in ONE DIRECTION!
Double cutting with our unique diamond pattern provides maximum protection by preventing hoof slippage in ALL DIRECTIONS!
When a farmer loses a cow to a “splits” injury, they risk losing not only the animal itself, but also a lot of potential revenue from milk production and the loss of good breeding stock.
Whether working on a freshly poured floor or one with existing grooves, I “groove” at an angle over the floated grooves, using my diamonds blades to give the original grooves a sharp 90 degree edge that helps protect the cows by enabling them to easily move in any direction, while allowing the farmer to scrape the floor clean without hitting the grooves.
Why Farmers Prefer to Work with P & D Barn Floor Grooving
Farmers prefer working with P & D Barn Floor Grooving because I pay attention to the movement of their cattle and the direction of travel, and position the grooves accordingly to give the cattle the best footing possible and true slip resistant flooring.
