pediKURA® walkway flooring for claw abrasion and softness

How does pediKURA® system benefit claw health?

The pediKURA® system (i.e. 20 % of the complete floor is covered with pediKURA®) ensures optimal softness + abrasion.
It supports the ideal claw form and with it the claw health.

 

Unfortunately often seen in animal houses:

 

Too long claw

Too long claws of cattle often are the cause for claw damages

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Consequences: 

  • Bulbs too low

-> bulb section in soil

-> higher risk for infectious claw diseases 
     (50 % of all claw damages)

  • Risk of overload

-> higher risk for mechanical-traumatic claw diseases
(50 % of all claw damages)

The solution: softness + abrasion = pediKURA®
