It is widely known for years that cattle housed on slatted rubber mats have been shown to gain weight faster than animals housed on bare concrete slats.
Durapak Slatted Rubber came out on top in a Teagasc trial which compared 360 beef bullocks using three different slatted rubbers, out-wintering pads, and bare concrete slabs. In summary, Durapak Slatted Rubber was proven to add 14kgs of extra carcass weight over and above bare concrete slats!
