Publication of DIN-3763
As already described in a previous blog entry, we are part of a working group that deals with the development of the DIN standard for elastic stable floor coverings in the running and lying areas of cattle and dairy cows. This standard was finally published in April 2020. You can buy the standard here.
The standard sets standards for elastic stable floor coverings to ensure the best for animal welfare. “Cattle are pasture animals in terms of their development. As a result, they have adapted to partially formable subsoil. This subsoil shape has an impact on lying down as well as on standing and running of the animals. A sensible floor design based on elastomer mats can meet these cattle needs To this end, this document specifies requirements for elastomeric mats for cattle stalls. ” (Quote from DIN 3763)
Of course, all of our cubicle and walkway coverings are within these standards, because Huber knows what cows like.
