We cut NON-SKID floors for dry healthy hooves
Grandview Concrete Grooving Inc. is an established business specializing in farm animal comfort and safety through the installation of Diamond Wheel Grooving of all livestock traffic areas of concrete flooring in dairy, beef, swine barns, stockyards and packing plants. Payback is very quick because cull rates due to lameness average less than 3% on GCG diamond pattern grooved floors versus cull rates as high as 25% without grooving. Cut grooves on a smooth floor will engage the hooves of the cattle fully, and prevent them from slipping and falling.
Cut grooves remain square and sharp for the life of the floor
Some of the added benefits of diamond wheel grooving are:
Uses diamond wheel to cut grooves - engineer approved, no hammering, no stone chips or chards
Safest, permanent traction for cows
Grooved floors dry off faster
Cows show heat because the superior traction does not inhibit mounting
The required movements of stepping up, stepping down, walking, turning and mounting are supported
Older high producing cows stay in the herd longer
Safer walking surfaces for people
Hammered or textured floors
Compromises the concrete
Creates sharp edges
Grinds cow's hooves resulting in sore feet
Scraper will buff floor smooth in six months
4x the price
Slippery when wet
DO NOT last
Our machines are custom made for maneuverability and the ability to cut new and existing concrete 1/2" wide or 3/4" wide by min. 3/8" deep at approximately 4" centres. A standard water garden hose fitting is all that is required for hookup. The cutting operation is dustless as the diamond blades require water spraying on them at the rate of 4 G.P.M. to keep them cooled.
