Comfort Slat Mat Solutions for Iowa
Elk Horn, IA, located in the West Central portion of the Hawkeye State, is home to NextGen Group, a provider of quality Comfort Slat Mats. We want to provide you and your cattle a safe and cost-effective alternative to open lots and bedded barns. Allow us to help you make your pit barn a comfortable and secure place for your Iowa cattle.
Anyone can claim they provide a quality product, but what does that mean? We can lower your costs by eliminating bedding. And, if there is no bedding to buy, then there is no bedding to have to haul in, and then scrape up and dispose of, saving you money in both inventory and labor. Pit barns have a smaller footprint than other alternatives. The average open lot needs over a hundred square feet per head of cattle and a bovine in a bedded barn usually needs around forty to forty-five square feet. Compare that with the twenty-one to twenty-two feet averaged in a pit barn and you can see the difference is quite large. Comfort Slat Mats keeps the manure and urine from washing into surrounding water sources and if the manure remains, that means your resulting manure is more nutrient-rich than it would be if a lot of it had been affected by run-off.
