CUBICLE MATS & COVERING LAYERS - DLG CERTIFICATION
The major daily activities of the cows are : 50% Lying – 21% eating – 13% milking
The resting area quality is ESSENTIAL : comfort comes from softenss, dryiness and cleanliness
Quality of materials is fundamental to obtain COMFORT and HYGIENE but also to protect from thermal
shock and slipping.
AGRICOW ECOLATEX MAT
Agricow ECOLATEX Mat ensure 100% achievement of goals being composed by a plate of polyurethane
foam ( 5cm or 7cm) to allow the correct pressure on the complete body of the animal PLUS a waterproof
high –resistance and toughness polypropylene but non-abrasive layer allowing natural runoff of liquids (
both urine and milk) with no ditching.

Improves the rest conditions of animals and thus their productivity + 20%
Reduces the risks of buises.icles.
It is soft, comfortable and non-slip.
The ECO- LATEX MATTRESSES AGRICOW ARE CERTIFIED DLG
The characteristics that have undergone these products are: +
Softness and Elasticity
Resistance to abrasion and slip (relative to top covers)
TEST : The load test was conducted through a simulation of the passage of the animal, 100,000 strokes applying a pressure of
10,000 Newtons (1000 kg) an area of 75 cm2.
Permanent deformation 16%
Softness and elasticity ++
CUBICLE MATTRESSES ECO-LATEX WITH NATURE COVER
AGRICOW NATURE layer is the NEWEST entry in Agricow range of top covers developed along 25 years of
cow comfort master experience.
The yarn of the NATURE cover, which is heat-sealed, has been initially studied for the technical sportswear
of the latest generation and thus it has all the characteristics of breathing and thermal insulation
imperative for animal welfare. The result is a minor impact of the tissue on cows’ knees reducing the risk of
trauma and abrasion and improving rest and health conditions. It is delivered equipped with a layer of eco-
membrane underneath for best resistance and highest isolation.
AGRICOW Yellow/Black layer It’s a polypropylene mesh fabric waterproof high strength and toughness
that allows the flow of urine on a flat surface devoid of hollows and keeps the animal clean. This allows you
to set up a litter with all the features fit for comfort and hygiene of the cattle. A product of the tradition for
AGRICOW which keep on giving the best results. This cover is garanteed 5 years ( degressive
AGRICOW Yellow/Black layer COATED owns the same characteristics of high resistance and
waterproof of the polypropylene fabric but is produced WITH a rubber coating on the back side ( the
rubber coating improves thermal isolation in case of colder temperatures)
A product of the tradition for AGRICOW which keep on giving the best results. This cover is
garanteed 10 years ( degressive warranty).
NATURE COVER developed for assuring the highest level of softness and protection of animal’s limbs.

The cover has been subjected to an abrasion test by using a ground cloth with 280 grain which has been applied a pressure of 500
N on a total area of 61.5 cm2 (8.13 N/cm2 equal to about 1 kg/cm2). The depth of abrasion, after 20,000 rotations in both
directions was about 0.4 mm ie 13% of the total. Were removed in total 1.6 g of material.
Test results: Resistance to abrasion +
Through special instruments it was decided to simulate the slip resistance in the presence of both wet and dry.The speed of travel
was 20 mm / s test showed good slip resistance on both wet and dry towel.The friction coefficient was above the minimum
threshold of 0.45 μ.
Test results: Slip resistance +

CUBUCLE MATTRESSES COW TRADITION
- In the tradition of AGRICOW, the self blocking mattress for bunk-bed used with sand COW-MATRESS
TRADITION is the result of studies and field experiences conducted over the years with the collaboration of
expert farmers.It is a rubber-cell structure that allows the use of sand on a cubicle with no problems leakage or depressions
caused by natural digging activity of animals.Full of sand it became a uniform base of inorganic material, chemically inert, soft and dry. It is inalterable
from physical and chemical point of view. It avoids formation of hollow due to the animals, so the bunk
results comfortable and clean.Prevents the formation of holes and depressions, makes the cubicles more comfortable and hygienic.
Agricow Cow-matress tradition avoid problems of sand leakage from the bunk. You can keep the bunk with
sand, straw and sawdust. Reduction to the minimum of restoration interventions with consequent discount
on maintenance costs.
The cell structure prevents the escape of sand about 70% less than traditional cubicle.
Rubber in the rear shelf, optional, allows the animal with an approach to the cubicle more balanced and
BEST VALUE FOR MONEY PRODUCT :
easy to be installed, suitable for all bunks and can be fixed simply with dowels to the floor.
• Resistant to insects and scooter electric microbes
• Does not accumulate static charge and prevent the interaction between materials
• Is highly resistant to acids, does not rots and its characteristics remain unchanged over time
• It’s 100% recyclable
