INNOVATION: THE UNIQUE SOFT KNEEBOARD WITH WATER
The Aqua Board® received the silver medal during Eurotier fair held in Hannover, Germany.
At the forefront of the latest studies on animal comfort, the Aqua Board® has been studied to meet the needs of both dairymen and cow comfort. Bioret Agri therefore developed the Aqua Board®, the first water knee board in the world.
The Aqua Board® consists of a water tube attached to the front of each mattress and furnished in the exact length of the cubicle row.
Conventional systems such as straps provide a dissuasion but resist poorly and slacken over time. They lose their effectiveness and have to be retightened regularly. Wooden boards, due to the hardness, can cause trauma and injury to live animal tissue.
- Soft kneeboard: no trauma during lying down or standing up.
- Adjustable height adapts to cows, genetics, cubicles, and mattresses you have. You can control the water pressure inside the tube and therefore the height and firmness of an Aqua Board®.
- Settings can be easily modified based on experience, change of lots, breed or sizes of cows.
- Once the correct pressure has been found, restraint and comfort are optimized resulting in cows lying in a natural position and often with a front leg extended over the Aqua Board®.
- Shock absorber: The mass created by the water gently stops the animal where needed.
- Suitable for all types of cubicles.
Adjustment: from 12 to 22 cm high
Length: to measure
