Heavy-duty Cattle Handling Systems
- A unique Squeeze Crush (from 9 to 30 inches) with multiple access gates to facilitate belly trimming, caesarians, calf fostering, TB testing, de-horning, ear tagging, A.I. and P.D. work
- A choice of manual or automatic (self-catch) headgates
- An adjustable alley (in to 16 inches to stop calves turning round, out to 30 inches) with solid sheet steel sides and a no back bar
- A crowding tub (forcing pen) with solid sheet steel sides just under 6 feet high.
The range features:
Optional extras include complete electronic weigh system with heavy-duty load bars, a scale base and chute mounts (192 kg), a headtable for de-horning, tagging etc, crash gates, vet gates, and an anti-drop down bar (to prevent cattle kneeling in the crush).
The equipment is so heavy (bison-proof) that bolting down or concreting in is optional. The system can be made portable using either a yoke trailer, a hydraulic trailer with removable draw-bar or by lifting quickly and easily with pallet forks.
Dr Temple Grandin of Colorado University highly recommends the use of the Pearson brand, in particular the "UK spec" model.
Due to the UK’s wet climate, the paint finish is superior to the US specification. The standard UK finish is double powder-coated paint, baked twice for a hardened finish. Hot dip galvanized options are also available.
