Slipping issues with livestock? Contact Corecut today to discuss how we can help.
The movement of animals and mechanical machinery on concrete surfaces produces through time, a slippery and dangerous surface both to livestock and humans. Valuable cattle sometimes have to be disposed of, as a result of a fall or torn muscles caused by slipping on these floors. Our purpose built machines use diamond blades to smoothly and precisely cut grooves into slats and concrete, unlike other grooving methods our machines leave a clean square edge with no damage to the surrounding concrete providing unparalleled levels of grip, resulting in increased safety for both your herd and you.
Key features of Farmyard Grooving
Spacing & Patterns
The grooves are placed at approximately 60mm centres and generally orientated perpendicular to the direction of travel. Grooves should be cut in two directions and can be either 90 degrees or diagonal to each other i.e. chess board design.
Depending on the quality of the concrete and the level of trafficking most grooved surfaces should maintain levels of grip for up to 10 years at which point the process can be repeated.
Our compact self propelled equipment allows us to access most areas including passageways, pens, loading areas and slats for dairy and beef farms.
We can offer very fast response times and with outputs in the region of 50m2 per hour most jobs can be completed within a day with minimal disruption.
