Immediately available a demo version of the SA51 hydraulci hoof trimming crush. This crush is equipped with the following options: disc brake system, metal doors in alloy gates and double pulling wheel. Price: 22500,- exc VAT. For more information and pictures contact us.
This month we delivered 2 galvanised 800-1's with CowCare trolley wheels, CowCare trailers and 200-1 gate systems to a client of us in South-France. This client has looked to different systems and decided to buy the 800-1's because of their fast and ergonomic way of working.
With 115 participants from 16 countries the first international hoof trimmers meeting organised by KVK in Billund, Denmark was an enormous succes. Interesting speakers and workshops made it very interesting to attend. Especially the demonstration with "traditional Japanese hoof trimming method" was a highlight. For the hoof trimmers which have missed it -> you have to wait till 2016, because then the next meeting will be. See you then!
The newest version of the CC01 alloy chute. This one is equipped with a more heavy axle which are removeable when working with the chute. Also it contains a catching fold, which can be transported easily inside the hoof trimming chute. the catching fold can hold one cow in the waiting area, making the cowtraffic faster and working for the hoof trimmer more relaxed. This chute will be presented during the Dreiländertreffen in South Germany from 15 till 17 September. Soon also more information will follow on this website.
Finally had some time to visit Damink Agrarische Dienstverlening, which got a new 800-1 already more then a month ago. This company is now working with two 800-1's and are transporting them by truck. Their working area is the east of The Netherlands and Germany.
We last week delivered the first 800-1 with 200-1 gate system and trolley wheel to ABIANT in the north of the Netherlands. This company is one of the larger hoof trimming companies in the Netherlands. The 800-1 will be used by two hoof trimmers ensuring a qualitative and comfortable job.
Last month we delivered a 650-SP2 to a large dairy farm in Latvia. The 650-SP2 is the smaller version of the 800-1 and ideal for larger dair farms. The crush will be used for whole year round trimming.
500-0 catching fold delivered to a client of us in The Netherlands. This is the newest version with alloy gates on it. In the setting in the picture they are working with 3 crushes and 1 catching fold. One cow is all time standing ready, ensuring fast cow traffic and the hoof trimmers can focus on their job instead of catching cows. Also a happy farmer, because the stress for the cows is less. For more look in the left menu under "Gate systems / lead-in pens".
Last week one of our Dutch clients picked up his new 800-1 with CowCare trolley wheel and 200-0 frame. The CowCare trolley wheel ensures fast up and unloading at a farm. Also putting the chute on the correct place in the farm is a 5 minute job with the CowCare trolley wheel. The 200-0 frame will be expended with 8 alloy gates, to get a large catching fold system.
Because of the large amount of orders and the holiday period at the end of the year, the production time of NEW ORDERED 800-1's has increased to around 4,5 months for the standard painted version and 5 months for the galvenised version. Also the production time of the 650-SP2 has increased. For more information contact us.
The CowCare trolley wheel we have developed to fit with our CowCare trailers. It is desgined for the 800-1, but we can adjust it also for other brands of hoof trimming chutes. Shortly will follow more information on our website about the trolley wheel.
Delivered to one of our clients in The Netherlands last month: a CowCare trailer with holders for the alloy gates of the 200-1 gate system. A 800-1 hydraulic hoof trimming chute, equipped with a CowCare trolley wheel.
Last week we delivered a SA0039 hydraulic chute to a veterinary company from Tartu area, Estonia. They are offering hooftrimming services for their clients in the area. The SA0039 is light and easy to handle.
In the picture you see the 200-1 gate system, connected to a 800-1. This gate system is largely made from alloy, making it easy to handle. It has a catching fold for one cow, just behind the chute. Equipped with extra gates, so you can keep multiple cows in line. On our website we soon will publish additional pictures and information.
Within 2 years after changing from a Dutch type hoof trimming chute to a 800-1 hydraulic chute, Damink Agrarische Dienstverlening in the Netherlands has bought its second 800-1. We can even say that it is the only hoof trimming company growing in a area crowded with hoof trimmers. This again shows the strenght of the 800-1!
The NRM was a well organised and good visited exhibition/show. We have spoken with farmers and hoof trimmers from all over the world. The interest for both the 800-1 and the CC01 hoof trimming chutes was very good. Also the new trolley wheel which we are producing got good comments.
We would like to thank all visitors and we hope to see you again in the near future.
On our YouTube channel you can find a new movie (made by Yvonne van Driel) where you see 2 Dutch hooftrimmers working together with their CC01's on a large dairy farm in the Netherlands. For the movie click here:
Also this year CowCare SIA participated in the Latvian Agricultural Exhibition. A good amount of our Latvian clients have found our stand where we showed some of the new products we have in our assortiment like for example the Intra SprayPro system. All clients, thanks for visiting us.
