    The patented SureFoot® Mat has been installed in abattoirs throughout Australia with impressive results.

    The installation of the RPS SureFoot® Cattle Mat has dramatically improved the animals condition before slaughtering and continually produces a Premium Grade of meat which has increased our earnings significantly. When you slaughter between 750 & 1000 yearlings a week it doesn’t take much to work out the value of RPS SureFoot® Cattle Mats which we paid in just 4 weeks. Graham Pretty – Greenhams Livestock Manager

    Recommended by the RSPCA for its ability to solve issues relating to cattle health and welfare and recently listed as the “flooring of choice” in the ALMA Code of Practice, the of the SureFoot® Mat allows for calm movement of animals subsequently ensuring a safe working environment for both animals and staff.

    Independent testing by the MLA indicated that the installation of the SureFoot® Mat provided substantial benefits to both animal welfare and in increased sale prices – ‘Food Safety Operations P/L Report (2002)’.

    “Under trials of 100 head of cattle placed on the SureFoot® Mat an increased sale price in excess of $2000 or $20.00 per head was calculated compared to the same number of cattle placed on a concrete surface”.

    The report recommended that:

    “The SureFoot® Mat should be promoted to abattoirs as a way of improving animal welfare and by reducing meat colour and pH to increase carcass sale price.”

    Major industry players are now reaping the benefits associated with the installation of the rubber SureFoot® Mat through improved meat quality and MSA grading; increased carcass prices; reduced risk of injury; smoother operations and increased animal welfare.
