Case Study, Farm Races - Lyle & Robyn Green, Waimate

“I wish we had JakMatDairy when we first built the cow shed, since we put it down, we haven’t had to replace lime rocks for the last 2 years!”


Basic Facts:

  • 320 hectare dairy
  • 1100 cows
  • 280 m2 covered by JakMat filled with lime

Main problem areas on the farm:

  • Races leading into and out of the milking shed


  • Integrity of the race remains sound
  • Improved cow flow
  • Race is dry with no potholings
  • Decreased stone carry over from race to shed
  • No maintenance required since JakMat installation

After 8 months usage:

Soft metal is still in place and the integrity of the surface is preserved.
