Concrete Grooving Trial Update

Smooth, slippery concrete can reduce cow mobility and oestrus activity and can potentially lead to lameness and injury. Concrete grooving is commonly used to improve cow grip on smooth concrete.

Trials of different grooving machines and grooving patterns are currently underway at Bridge farm to assess improvement in cow traction and the associated costs. This trial update describes the machines, the grooves that they produce and the cost of concrete grooving.

Issued September 2011.

This Trial Update is only available to members.
