The only cattle mat that passes muster.


YoungStar cattle mat was designed, developed and tested with the help of Australian feedlots, sales yards, abattoirs, and live exporters. So, it’s no wonder that it checks all the right boxes. Not only does it offer a uniquely effective anti-slip design – but it also offers high durability, simple installation and easy cleaning. Prevent injuries and reduce animal stress with YoungStar cattle mats.

Improving Well-being
(Yours and theirs)

With the added grip and comfort provided by YoungStar, cattle are calmer, more comfortable and easier to handle. You’ll save hundreds of hours that you’d otherwise spend dealing with injuries and thousands of dollars in costs associated with the replacement of poor-quality alternatives that don’t last.

Developed with the help of industry leaders

YoungStar is unique because it is the first fit-for-purpose cattle mat designed, developed, and tested with the help of Australian beef industry partners. Numat, who has spent 20 years developing agricultural surfacing solutions, worked with the team at Grassdale feedlot in Dalby, Queensland to produce the ideal cattle mat.

Designed for performance under pressure

YoungStar mat has large optimally placed lugs that dramatically reduce cattle slipping in high-pressure areas. It is made from thick, high-quality vulcanized rubber that’s built to last. Its uniform design ensures it is easy to install and easy to clean.

Our team

Mike Judd

Director / Sales Consultant

Mike has had over 30 years in the animal husbandry sector. Starting off on his father’s farm, he then became involved in the stock and station agency sector, before moving on to make his very first agricultural rubber mat in 1995 using shredded rubber from old truck tyre buffings, resin, and a bucket. From that time, he has studied surfacing, animal behaviour, and stock movement. Today he is still involved in developing, suppling and selling Numat’s present range of livestock matting (for any situation) which we now supply to most parts of the industry in Australia and New Zealand.  |  1800 686 287
