Harpers Farm Supplies, the agri-retailing division of Devon-based Harpers Feeds, has been appointed as Europe’s first dealer for Arrowquip’s range of livestock handling equipment.
Two cattle handling systems are available in the UK – the entry level Com-Catch 61 Series crush and the market leading Q-Catch 86 Series squeeze crush.
The Q-catch 86 is claimed to be the quietest cattle crush available and is a flexible system that’s capable of accommodating livestock of all sizes. It has been engineered to help reduce stress on both the animal and the operator.
Highly durable and maintenance-free rubber floors help to reduce the risk of slipping, while sound damping rubber absorber hinges and sound damping on the gates ensure silent operation. Two rows of rump bars, with nylon rump bar fingers, extend to the back of the crush to ensure safety and control over animals of any size.
The push-pull squeeze lever is designed to work across the full range of cattle sizes.
The Catch 61 is an economical solution that offers flexible access to the animal, preventing distractions and limiting the risk of injury to both operator and animal.
