Q: What is the difference between a mat and a mattress?
A: It depends on your definition . The true definition of a cow mattress is “a soft warm cushion for your cows to lie on when in the cubicle”. By that definition both the Mayo Mattress and the Mayo Original are cow mattresses with the main difference being that the Mayo Mattress is softer.
Q: Is the gap between the mats unhygienic?
A: No. The Mayo Mattress range is supplied at the correct width to ensure that the gap is ALWAYS underneath the cubicle division. The important area for hygiene is directly underneath the cow’s udder. In tests, the Mayo Mattress range was shown to be the most hygienic surface as it is 100% non-absorbent and can never become absorbent even as it ages. This is due to the unique structure of the product. Of course, fitting them with the Mayo Strip will cover this gap and alleviate all concern on this front.
Q: Do they compress and harden with time?
A: No. The air content of the Mayo Mattress range is permanent. It can never be released and the amount of material used during manufacture is graded to prevent the air cells collapsing. It can sometimes be observed that the back edge of a mat can get thinner. This is true as there is no material to support the cells. However, even one inch into the mat the product will be the same original thickness. This is normal and has no impact on the mat’s performance.
Q: Why would I choose a Mattress over a Mat - they haven’t performed as well
A: There are many different products on the market with the label “mattress”. Top cover or filled mattresses were popular during the grant years and now are starting to fail hence wariness over the term mattress. The Mayo Mattress has not succumbed to this fate and is still out-performing the alternates on the market. It is 100% EVA from top mm to bottom mm - there is no layer, no cover hence no worry with ripping and hygiene as a result.
Q: Does it come in a roll?
A: No. The Mayo Mattress range is pressed not extruded. A roll of the 44mm Mayo Mattress would be something to behold when trying to transport! In any case - there is no benefit to producing this product in a roll. Each cushion is exactly that - a perfect cushion for the animal - the integrity of which will not be compromised as part of a full roll.
Q: Is a roll not easier to fit?
A: That depends on the setup at the farm. In any case, 50+ Mayo Mattresses can be fitted by one man in one day together with brisket board and strips when the site is clear. Any perceived negative due to fitting method in the short-term is heavily outweighed by the significant difference in quality and benefit to the animal with the Mayo range longer term.
