Sling puts downers back on their feet

LIFT up downer cows using the Daisy Cow Lifter from Certex, a sling with fittings designed to slide under the cow.

Cows that lie down for too long are at risk of dying, adds Certex.

The sling is positioned under the cow so that she can be lifted up easily with a loader tractor and held in a standing position.

Each Daisy lifter costs £95 (01275-892792).
