Only small note, I like the idea, but the sharp turn is also not good for claw's. But the idea nice!!!

I saw some discussion on Twitter about this idea. Some negatives about it would be the 90 degree turn the cow has to make. The cow has to step down into the foot bath instead of stepping over a curb. The spit down the middle makes it harder for the cow to walk through the bath and most likely will try to walk on the middle and outside curbs. Also I'm wondering how the left side drains?
Great idea on sorting only the cows you want to go through the foot bath. I have seen that system work well on tollbooth style robot rooms.

I hope that you also make a video when there is a real cow going true !!
This is just a great idea - but do cows like it ?

We have foot baths right in front or our robots, we sure like it as it sure works for us and will not have it no other way, and about the rubber mat, you will have to nail it down as it will float once you put water into the bath area.

Great to hear, thanks for the advice!

Jeroen has a strong point. Adding to that cows should have2-3 steps walk inside the foot bath
