We are proud to unveil DryZone Slatted Flooring, a cutting-edge solution that sets a new standard for high-quality plastic flooring in calf operations. With a relentless focus on calf welfare, DryZone Slatted Flooring enhances the lives of your calves while optimizing your operational efficiency.
DryZone Slatted Flooring boasts remarkable features that make it the preferred choice for calf farmers. Product Specifications:
- Modular Slatted Platform for Floor Plan Flexibility: DryZone’s modular design allows for unparalleled floor plan flexibility, enabling calf farmers to customize their calf-rearing areas easily.
- Enhanced Animal Welfare: Calf welfare is at the heart of DryZone’s design. The modular slatted floor promotes better airflow, ensuring calves enjoy a comfortable and well-ventilated environment. This design reduces common issues like odor buildup and moisture retention, further enhancing calf welfare.
- Designed to be used with no bedding or with bedding: DryZone Slatted Floor’s innovative design allows for its use without bedding or, if preferred, with bedding. This results in a substantial reduction in bedding consumption, thereby lowering operational costs and minimizing environmental impact.
- Textured Surface for Traction: DryZone features a textured surface that provides calves with the traction they need for secure footing and healthy growth when not using bedding.
- Universal Design: DryZone’s universal design ensures compatibility with various calf-rearing systems, making it a versatile choice for calf operations.
- Optional Quick-Lock Legs: The legs elevate the platform to enhance drainage and airflow when using it with our Ultra-Flex indoor pen system, and they are also compatible with other brands of indoor pens.
- Position Brackets: Our hardware is designed to aid alignment and keeps indoor pens or hutches from moving off the floor. “We are thrilled to introduce DryZone Slatted Flooring to the market,” said Darren VanBuuren, Owner and CEO of Agri-Plastics. “This product is a much asked for product from our customer base.

About Agri-Plastics: The VanBuuren family founded Agri-Plastics in 1995. These third-generation dairymen know first-hand the difficulties experienced on a dairy farm. They began experimenting with hutch designs to provide healthier, more comfortable environments for calves. Over the years, Agri-Plastics has listened and learned from many other producers, and they have used that knowledge to create game-changing innovations that have since become industry standards.
