Double D Family Mat Shop, Inc., is a family-owned and operated manufacturer of custom-built livestock slip reduction systems. Our heavy-duty, rubber mats protect livestock and employees from potentially costly injury in heavy loading and processing areas.
Livestock need a chance to gain their footing on unnatural, hard surfaces. Non-slip Double D Mats™ provide the firm, but tough surface they need. The woven pattern provides stability by catching and stopping hooves from slipping.
Injured livestock could mean injured profits
By using Cattle Mats, we cut down on cripples. We use them wherever we have a slick spot and/or areas where cattle could fall. We process about 400,000 head a year. Approximately 150,000 are calve we wean for producers or feedlots. The Cattle Mat calms the calves and makes the processing quieter.
