Barn Grooving

Keeps livestock healthy and productive

Barn Grooving Done Right

Don’t let livestock costs slip away!

Barn grooving is an important and cost-effective way of preventing cows from slipping, falling, getting stressed, and hurt. The objective of barn grooving is to create a non-slip concrete surface so cattle have the proper traction in alleys, yards, feed, and holding pens. The grooves catch hooves before they slip, and the channels are ideal for moving standing water.

There are many ways to pattern a groove profile on existing concrete surfaces. The fastest, easiest, and most cost-effective way is through the use of an upright self-propelled concrete scarifier or diamond shaver like the SMITH FS351 Self-Propelled Surfacer.

No matter what type of grooving patterns your job requires – straight, cross-cut, scarified or diamond groove pattern – select a machine that can be outfitted with a variety of cutter drums and groove spacing patterns to get the job grooved right, the first time.
