calf mats

After our last run out in Anglesey we've decided to put some padding on the floor of the sib..we've found some quite dense foam that's used in the dairy industry called calf matting..its about inch half thick very light and comes in 6x4 sheets...

No they are made for calfs to lay on so can't absorb anything they need to be lifted out of the pens and disinfected a lot so its very light..I use it in the dog van for my dogs to sleep on..going to get some tommorow so I'll post some pics n prices

I use this in the back of the 110. It's closed cell and completely waterproof. Fairly light and very non-slip.

Mine has survived horrible abuse over the last 14 years and still going strong!

Very interesting indeed!

Is it any good for making an on-deck mattress for example?

Dunno. Calves have low expectations. I suspect that Liz will expect more from a mattress....
