A new cattle handling system has been launched by Canadian maker Arrowquip that is designed to reduce animals’ stress levels. Key to the Q-Catch 86 Series crush, race and forcing pen is the entry point, which allows cows to enter at the front of the pen, rather than the rear. This means they turn back towards the entry point to step into the crush, which apparently keeps them much calmer. The rubber floor reduces instances of slipping, and anti-rattle rubber hinges and nylon bushes make it the quietest cattle crush on the market, says Arrowquip.“Arrowquip equipment improves handling safety and efficiency by working with – not against – the natural instincts of cattle,” Mr Langrell said. “Combining this with customer feedback, trial work on our research farm and quality manufacturing, we’ve developed the most diverse and innovative range of cattle handling equipment on the market.”

Uses:

A cattle crush holds the animal immobilised to minimise the risk of injury to both the animal and the handler. An effective livestock handling system requires a suitable choice from a wide range of commercially available cattle crushes.

Features:

  • Spacing in the 3E Q-Catch Yoke Gate uses light to improve cattle flow
  • Infinite locking mechanisms on head gate and squeeze require no adjustments between different sizes of animals
  • Parallel squeeze from 750mm to 197mm secures any size of animal
  • Fixed width vet cage provides plenty of room for handlers
  • Removable panels and opening top and bottom side doors give operators multiple points of access
  • One row of composite rump fingers
  • New design steel floor with ribs and punched holes for extra traction
  • All moving parts are engineered with nylon bushing for quietness and longevity
  • Available add-ons include vet cage, two-piece head holder, head scoop, sternum bar and weighing equipment
