The world-wide best selling calving aid from Europe. Hangs-on to the cow whether she is standing or goes down in the middle of the job. The permanently attached holding frame fits over the cow’s hip bones, acting as a steady and fixed base from which the Calving Jack tilts and pulls regardless of whether the cow stands, sits or stretches out. This calf puller was developed after extensive institutional research into the forces required for the safest and most humane birthing assistance. All stainless steel. Standard pole is 1.6m long and long pole 1.8m long. The long pole will fit all Vink Calving Jacks. Rump frame 51cm wide (inside measurement).

The Daisy-Lifter cow lifter is designed for medium term support for a down cow. The cow is supported over a large body area, thus reducing pressure points. Fully adjustable to any size animal, and manufactured from long-life materials. The Daisy-Lifter is supplied as a complete kit in a handy carry-bag. The Daisy-Lifter is made in Standard and X-Large models. The Standard model will suit all medium size dairy breeds (up to medium-size holstein). The X-Large model is 20cm longer and wider, and should be used for large-size dairy breeds and larger beef cows. Recommended maximum lift load for the Daisy-Lifter is 1,000kg.

Liftease has been developed to improve usability and outcomes from
existing sling-lift devices. Firstly, Liftease is very strong. We do not
believe it can be damaged in use. Liftease is designed to increase cow
comfort by preventing or reducing sweating inside fully-enclosed slings.
When used for longer periods, these can lead to skin ulcers and hide
damage. Liftease is easy to use. It is recommended that the cow is first
lifted by a hip-clamp device, but if such a device is not available, the
cow can be rolled onto the Liftease, or the Liftease can simply be
pulled through under the down animal. The Liftease lift straps each have
three lift loops, to give variation of lift height. These loops are
designed to fit on a silage fork, and are less likely to slip off than
metal hooks. Liftease is designed to lift up to 2,000kg without risk.

Recent research has confirmed that several diseases, including E.coli scours and Joint-ill, find their way into the newborn animal via the umbilical cord. Sprays and dips can also cause problems. Our umbilical clamps are the solution. Simply attach as soon as possible after birth. Remove after 24 to 48 hours. Place clamp approximately 5mm from top of umbilical cord. Cut cord below clamp to prevent suckling. Clamps can be disinfected and re-used if desired, or can be left to fall off naturally. Ideal for piglets as clamps are large enough not to fall through creep floors. Clamps 65mm long o.a.

The HK Standard (previously HK121) calf puller is the world’s original calf puller. Made in Germany, it is 100% reliable. The grooved shaft never slips. The modern, model 2020 traction device, gives smooth pulling power on both foward and backward strokes. Pulling can be either tandem (legs together) or sequential (one after the other) depending on hooks engaged. A thumb-operated quick-release lever is incorporated. An excellent feature is the split-apart 1.7m-long main pole, making for an easy transport on bike or quad. And easy storage. (Disassembled length 85cm o.a.) Supplied with specially-produced ‘padded’ nylon ropes.

Flat-braid rope is softer than twisted rope. There is no core in it so it flattens around a limb, in this case to 12mm wide. 1.8m length is long enough to circle your body for better purchase. Use as a single or double. Use colours to identify left/right legs when not visible. Length 1.8m
