Pore-free surfaces for dairy cattle

Sealing pores in surfaces

If micro-organisms in dirt, urine or manure can settle in hard-to-reach places, a proper cleaning and disinfection process becomes impossible. Pores and cracks in the feed trough are ideal places for pathogens, which is why its pores must be sealed to keep the rations fresh and tasty. This way, a pore-free feed trough contributes to feed hygiene.

How do I seal the pores in surfaces?

Cementitious surfaces such as concrete or sand-lime bricks have an open structure and are therefore never suitable for hygienically housing animals or feed. These materials can however often be equipped with a hygiene coating, which does safeguard proper hygiene. This is particularly important for feed troughs. A cementitious feed trough with a coating:

  • seals pores
  • increases feed intake as rations are tastier
  • creduces the sticking of dirt and makes it come off more easily
  • simplifies the cleaning and disinfecting process
  • fills cracks and seams to prevent pathogens from settling

Pore-free surfaces in relation to the other HyCare pillars

A living environment in which seams and pores are eliminated is the foundation for a germ-free living environment. A thorough cleaning and disinfecting process decreases the infection pressure for your animals. It must also be ensured that pest or drinking water pipes cannot spread pathogens. In addition to creating a germ-free living environment, optimal care for animals is another crucial aspect of the HyCare method.
