Among a host of new products from livestock equipment specialist Ritchie was this Lambtec handler.


Designed for use by two people, with one catching and loading a lamb and then rotating the device to allow the other to attach castration and/or tail rings, while a second lamb is loaded.

The implement is designed to allow the animal to held upright, meaning no need to hold lambs between knees, thereby reducing the likelihood of backache by the end of the day.

Features include a mast to suspend drench bags, tool tray and marking fluid holder.
