Customer Testimonials

We put Animat rubber mats in the feed passageway of our new shed and in the exit to the milking parlour. They are brilliant – I wish we could afford to mat it all!”

John Harrison, Crossrigg Pedigree Holsteins, Cumbria.
We recently put Animat rubber flooring in our rapid exit milking parlour. The surface is secure and non-slip, the cows stand comfortably and move quickly and safely through the parlour.

The fitting was a very tidy job, and Intershape was flexible in arranging the work around my building schedule.

I am extremely pleased with both the product and the service Intershape provided.”

Neil Evans, Holebrook Farm, Shropshire.
We installed [Animat] rubber matting in the parlour, the collecting yard and at feed faces about 6 years ago.
You can see a real difference compared with concrete - the cows have much more confidence on it. They head straight for the rubber matting rather than walking on the concrete.”

Claire and David Webb, Tockenham, Wiltshire.
