Less stress crush

HANDLE suckled calves safely and easily in an adult cattle crush from Tony Binns Livestock Equipment.

The adult crush converts quickly and easily to handle calves as it is fitted with a calf squeeze, allowing the width to be narrowed for safer handling, says the company. A calf head restraint can also be fitted for dehorning and ear tagging.

According to the company, which uses the crush on its own farm, there is a noticeable reduction in stress on both the animals and the operator.

The crush with calf handler costs £1300 for the galvanised model. (01423-770757).
