Farmer

Ergonomic hoof care unit for the (dairy) farmer

Professional, user-friendly, hoof trimming box, suitable for all varieties of cattle, cows and bulls. Extra stability due to the standard wide floor at the back of the frame. Extra strength because all corners are reinforced with struts. Fully hot-dip galvanised, therefore highly resistant to corrosion.

The sides of the box are well protected for the farmer (to prevent the cow from kicking).

Equipped with adjustable, sturdy “Texas” gates. The cattle get restrained in the gates when entering the unit.

Equipped with high quality electrical components.

Very user-friendly and requires low maintenance. Reliable, proven technology, making it a very sturdy box.

Can be provided with various options.

The Farmer has been developed for optimal ease of use with an eye towards the well-being of the cattle. Animal welfare and user friendliness for the farmer are paramount in the development of new products.

Our Farmer is made as standard. If, in addition to the existing possibilities, you have specific ideas or requests, we will be happy to realise them for you.
