Two way diamond cut grooving is long lasting, clean, drier and safer floors

 

Concrete grooving paid for itself in the first year. Cows' hooves are staying trimmed longer and the clean up bull is jumping with no cows slipping... Our vet says - It is the best concrete floor for cows he's seen. No slippage, no hoof problems.

Thought we'd send a couple of pictures from the grooving of our cement barn yard. Cows seen to be enjoying the non-slip effect. Thanks again!

Grooving our slatted floor barn makes it work a lot better - No splits. Heifers run up and down aisle now. Clean up bull will mount now.

GCG was pleased to have grooved the heifer barn (milled 3 years previously) for Cavanleck Farms.

Concrete should be smooth and grooved rather than roughened. Take a look at new, rough concrete. Get down on your bare knees and run the palm of your hand over the surface and you'll see how it must feel to the cow.

The tractor tread grooving design (diamond shape) both looks looks great and gives great traction for the cows and employees. I haven't had a cow go down since. They haven't been afraid to jum or stand for heats. There's been no problem scraping the floors either. Grooving the floors is the best investment I’ve made in years and has given us great peace of mind.

Within the first two to three months after this grooving was done, I was surprised to see a dramaatic improvement in the heat detection rate in this herd.

(Hoards Art) James A. Jarrett, DVM., Rome, Georgia, U.S.A.

 

Records indicate that, prior to grooving, the heat detection rate was approzimately 40 to 50 percent. After grooving the rate improved to somewhere between 70 to 75 percent.

Just looking at it (the grooved floor) the other day with a guy and remarked how good it still is after 15 years.

Very happy with grooved slats.

Excellent - has paid for itself.

Grooving done 10 years ago still working well". "Grandview Concrete Grooving (gcg) does a good job.

Ron Popma, A&A Dairy, Abbotsford, B.C.

 

Many cows moved like they were walking on eggs. We considered using a scabbler. We decided against it since we were afraid of cracking the concrete at lower depths. Grooving of existing, highly polished concrete in free stall alley, holding areas, walking lanes and cow lots reduces cow injuries and attrition.

New confinement and stanchion barn consturction should utilize grooving.

Best Investment.

Haven't shipped any cows due to lameness. Heats are excellent.

Great job. No cattle slipped all winter . . . Wish I'd done it sooner.
