New Compost-A-Mat sizes for pork producers
USA Solutions has designed two new sizes of
Compost-A-Mats that can be used in farrowing and wean-to-finish barns. Producers
can either use a soft mat that will last up to 10-14 days or a harder mat that
will last until weaning. A new 4' x 8' size wean-to-finish mat gives producers
an additional option from the original 4' x 5'6" size.
Compost-A-Mats provides draft protection to piglets
because it eliminates the chance of pathogens being moved from one group of pigs
to the next. The mats are free of all swine pathogens and scientific trials have
shown a decrease in pre and post weaning mortality.
biodegradable constructed from pressed wood pulp and cornstalks without using
glues or resins. The mats are designed to compost after use which saves time and
labour costs compared to the hassles associated with the rubber mats.
