Our crush was installed Spring 2011 with a purpose-built race. The cows now flow well into the crush and being able activate the crush mechanism from the rear makes it simple and efficient for one person to capture the cow. We regularly use the cow for different things as well, e.g. AI and calving!..Wakelin Family - North Canty Dairy Farmers
“Saves my back and makes dealing with front feet a piece of cake!”
..A Crump - Putaruru
"Having such a safe and easy to use crush means less time treating each cow. This results in more prompt treatment which can ultimately mean less lost production. No more struggling with leg ropes to restrain the cow. The cows are relaxed and comfortable and the operator can concentrate on doing the best job on their feet!"..David Tanner - Taratahi Agricultural Training Centre

Farm staff look forward now to trimming hooves.”..Shaun Pound – Pokene
