produces a heavy-duty rubber floor mat that reduces falls in cattle processing areas.

The company states that using non-slip mats also reduces the chance of hoof damage.

The mats are designed for alleyways, sale barns, vet clinics, packing plants, trailers – anywhere livestock encounter slick surfaces.

The company said the traction and soft surface are especially beneficial around the chute.

The cattle mats are made by weaving together discarded tire treads and then fastening them with stainless steel bolts, making them very durable. The weight of the mats prevents shifting in heavily traveled areas.

Double D has also developed a hook to help move the mats around for cleaning underneath.  end mark
