Surefoot Cattle Slat

Surefoot Cattle Slat

Slipping is a major welfare concern, and injuries from falls can be a significant financial loss to farms. We have been driven to find a solution and are pleased to introduce our Surefoot ™ Slip Resistant Slats which offer 50% more grip than conventional slats.

SUREFOOT ™ SLIP RESISTANT SLATS DESIGN & HANDLING INSTRUCTIONS

Our Surefoot™ Slip Resistant Slats are CE Marked – Manufactured to EN 12737. Full specification is available in the Declaration of Performance.

Customers should lift and handle units either by under-slinging with web slings or lifting directly with appropriate mechanical lifting equipment, such as a telescopic handler. Lifting loops will correspond to the load being lifted. Slats should be laid on a smooth level surface. For more details please refer to our Storage and Handling Instructions.

  • “We feel the cows are more confident on the Surefoot™ slats. This can be confirmed by the positive bulling activity we see. With the new confidence on their footing we are getting great yields and plan to purchase some more.” Richard Roberts, Anglesey, Wales

  • “We would definitely say that the cows’ confidence has increased since being housed in our new cubicle house with the Surefoot™ slats. The cows are visibly cleaner and we have not observed any excessive wearing of the feet.” Jane Glover, Uttoxeter, Staffordshire

  • “We opted for Surefoot™ slats on the entire walking area of our new building and have had nothing but positives since first introducing the cows. There is plenty of grip on the slats. When we released the bull into the shed we did not experience any issues, all went to plan. It would only take one cow to slip or fall for you to cover the extra cost incurred in opting for Surefoot™ slats.” William Galloway, Portwilliam, Wigtonshire

  • The cows’ confidence on the Surefoot™ slats is much better than on conventional brushed slats which we have in other sheds. You can definitely see this confidence in their gait. Even for myself walking on the slats I move a lot faster and feel more secure on the Surefoot™ slats. It is definitely a far superior product. Moore Concrete did an excellent job from start to finish.” Thomas Steele, Kircubbin, Co. Down

  • “I now run the bull with my Holstein Cows, whereas I didn’t dare to let the bull in with cows on the previous floor.” John McFadzean, Mauchline, Ayrshire
