Moving Floor AB

Moving Floor Concept has been developed to improve animal welfare, working environment and prevent negative environmental impact. The system provides a totally automatic cleaning that guarantees removal of the manure and slurry out of the stable within two hours. Straw or other types of bedding is automatically refilled continuously. The cleaning and straw refilling intervals can be controlled manually or via a computer. The Moving Floor Concept`s products are approved by the Swedish Board of Agriculture. Tommy Lindvall has devoted the past 20 years to the development of self-cleaning floors and associated equipment. The challenge started already in 1995 with developing self cleaning floors for pigs.
