AGRI-TRAC Inc. / AGRI-TRAC US provides 'TRACTION MILLING' as a alternative solution to slippery concrete floors and lameness prevention differently than diamond grooving, scarifying, scabbling and rubber. Full surface 'TRACTION MILLING' provides a positive traction surface which prevents the slip from starting minimizing the potential for hoof damage.

Grooving works on a slip and catch basis. The groove is put in place to allow the hoof to catch the edge of the groove to stop the slip after it has started. This creates mechanical damage to the hoof which can lead to bacterial infections etc. which in turn can cause lameness.

Our 'TRACTION MILLING' process works on all patterns of concrete including; slats, diamond grooved, impressed and broom finished flooring. The equipment is compact and versatile and allows access to tight areas like return alleys and cross-overs in addition to the traditional open spaces such as holding areas, alleys and parlour areas.

Since its development in 1997, AGRI-TRAC's 'TRACTION MILLING' has been used to provide livestock with improved hoof health and living conditions in over 1500 facilities covering over 4.5 million Sq Ft across Canada and in the US mid west and north east. Working closely with hoof trimmers and other dairy professionals'TRACTION MILLING' is recognized for the benefit it offers all types of livestock. The positive traction provides confident footing which leads to improved hoof health,  increased heat detection and pregnancy rates, with reduced stress that all contribute to increased milk production and greater profitability for the farmer.

AGRI-TRAC vs. Scarifying

  • Don’t be fooled by cheap imitations and false advertising.
  • If some one claims that Scarifying is the same as AGRI-TRAC “Traction-milling” it is false.
  • There are many differences some of which are explained below.
  • The equipment developed, manufactured and used by AGRI-TRAC Inc. is unique and patented.
  • The crews that operate it are extensively trained to provide the customer and livestock with the best service and effective floor texture
  • possible to improve production and reduce lameness.

Bio-Security & Clean-Up

  • AGRI-TRAC Inc. power-washes the floors completely clean before traction-milling the surface.This ensures that no spots or areas will be missed and also is more biosecure.
  • Manure is not picked up and transferred from farm to farm spreading contamination.
  • The residue from the grinding process is also swept up and removed so that no chips or particles are left behind to injure the hoofs.
  • The remaining fine dust must also be removed. If not, it turns back into cement and fills in the micro-surface of the floor drastically reducing its efficiency. The floor must be power washed again and all equipment used is thoroughly cleaned.
  • Your Barn Will Be Cleaner When We Leave Than When We Arrived!

Texture & Pattern
The AGRI-TRAC equipment is designed to create a consistent pattern at a very high rate of speed. A scarifyer cannot achieve this and will result in areas ground too deep or skipped over completely.
