Concrete floor systems
Full concrete Floors
A 100% concrete floor is another option to build the Redpath Dairyshelter overhead. Typically the concrete pad floors are used as only short term holding (a few hours) maximum per day, as the harshness of the concrete on the cows can become problematic for animal welfare reasons if used as a standing area for longer periods of time.
Covering your concrete pad will reduce the amount of water run-off from the pad caused by rainfall - substantially reducing the filling loads placed on your existing effluent ponds. For some farms this can often be the deciding factor when considering a shelter for your pad.
Redpath will supply and construct over existing or new concrete pads and are happy to quote for your individual application, call us with the dimensions and trough spacings so we can submit an estimate.
