In April CowCare proudly delivered the first 800-1 with CowCare trolley wheel to Simon Bramer of Hoof Solutions in Southland area, New Zealand. Ofcourse we did that personally as we do with 95% of the crushes we sell to professional hoof trimmers anywhere in the world. We at CowCare focus on service, quality and knowledge and want only the best for our clients. We wish Simon lots of pleasure with his new crush!
CowCare has been present at the Dutch hoof trimmers meeting. A very good organised meeting. Big thanks for the organisation and the large amount of visitors. We showed the Alu-Hooftrimmer, the 800-1 and 2 new catching folds. Looking forward to the meeting next year!
A small glance of the new CowCare FarmCrush. Galvanized, with an electric engine for lifting front and back legs. Ment for smaller farms. We are looking for dealers in different countries for this new crush. If you have interest, please feel free to contact us. Oh yeah, important to mention, expected sales price is € 2495,-. For hoof trimmers or companies interested in selling it we can offer special prices.
Already last year we made the decission to update our car park and make it more practical and fuel efficient. The first new car, which will be used by the sales managers of CowGenetics and CowCare combined on the Baltic market, has been delivered this in April. Next one coming soon. There you go girls, get some kilometers on it!
Also this year CowCare participated in the agricultural exhibition in Riga, Latvia. As our home market and the country in Europe with the lowest milk prices a bit of support would not be wrong. We enjoyed the positive way a lot of young farmers are thinking and want to thank all visitors to our stand!
Did you know that the Alu-Hooftrimmer PROF CC02 has a different back leg fixation? The fixation is ideal because it gives you a safe working space and full ability to look to the claw from all sizes. See the picture on the left. If you would like to work with this crush, contact us and we arrange a visit in the Netherlands.
New in our assortment: Hydraulic catching fold with 6 gates. One cow place directly behind the crush. The back gate of the crush opens and closes hydraulic. This unit can only be used if you are working with a truck with crane. For price and info contact us.
A normal and a galvanized 800-1 standing next to eachother. The galvanized model is slightly more expensive, because it is special made. 90% of our clients chooses the painted version, the other 10% goes for galvanized. We have in several countries both versions running.
An galvanized 800-1, for a French client. The leg system you see in the picture is used to load and unload the crush fast from a trailer. And it seems to be system only popular in France. At the moment there are 3 crushes running with this system. If you are interested in this system, we can send you more information.
This picture shows a SP2 with metal leg shields for the back legs (from an Italian client). To work with this you need to adjust a bit the back part of the SP2. So yes it is possible to use the CowCare metal leg shields also on the SP2. Only for innovative hoof trimmers!
Some of the changes on the newest 800-1 are a new counting sensor, a new computer display and a LED light near the front gate which autmatically switches on and off when moving the elevator. All invented to increase the efficiency of the hoof trimmer. Looking forward to see the reviews from the first clients working with them.
Beginning March, our stock was totally full so we had to place some of the ordered crushes outside to make place for pallets with products. Normally the beginning of the year is a bit more quiet, but not this year. Are there less hoof trimmers in hibernation or are we getting more busy?
Our advertorial in International Dairy Topics, volume 15, number 1 from this January/February. We have informed you before that we are moving forward with the different models of the Alu-Hooftrimmer range. At the moment we have found a sales partner for the Polish market. Soon we will introduce this company to you. And since Monday we have a new sales manager for the German market. Also him we will introduce soon to you. More and more hoof trimmers choose for CowCare, that's the way we like it!
A belly band of a 800-1 hydraulic crush on a WOPA SA39 hydraulic crush, is that possible? Yes it is, see the picture. One of our clients has changed the original belly band for the red one and is satisfied with it. Also good to see, are the front leg holders, made of plastic. More lasting. Interested? Send us a private message.
Interview (in Latvian) with CowCare SIA about claw health in Latvian newspaper "Druvas" from 27-01-2016. Nice picture of 2 x Alu-Hooftrimmer CC01 hoof trimming crushes to show how professional hooftrimming is done.
Our metal leg shields for the 800-1 are used by 90% of the hoof trimmers in the Netherlands which have a 800-1. Why would you use them? 1. They are more save for the cow. As soon as the leg goes down, the metal leg shield falls off. With the yellow leg manchettes this is not the case. 2. You can work faster. For the 650SP2 they can be used if you adjust the back door. Interested? Send us an email for the price.
