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.
When a calf is born with a contracted flexor tendon, the fetlock joint is caused to knuckle under, causing serious limitation to the mobility of the calf. The BOS splint is applied to the back of the leg, with the splint bottom edge at ground level. With application of the splint the calf should have normal mobility immediately. Remove the splint after 4-5 days. Splint length 40cm o.a.
Note: Administration of anti-inflammatories at initial splint application may also be beneficial. Consult your veterinarian.
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
