Infrared system on the 800-1

New faster leg shield sytem for 800-1 crushes
Rob Verhoeven one of the first hoof trimmers in the Netherlands which started working with an 800-1 hydraulic hooftrimming crush has developed new leg shields for his crush.

Tests have shown that with these leg shield it is possible to clearly work faster then with the standard leg shields. Also attaching the leg shield to the cow's leg is faster and more easy (less bending for the hooftrimmers back). These leg shields can be used on both front and back feet.

Some clients started asking us if we were in a winter hibernation, because for some time there has not been any "latest news". The answer is: NO! We have actually been quite busy and did not take the time to put the latest news on the website. But today we have updated everything again, so take your time to read our 5 newest articles below! Enjoy!
The 650-SP2++ a new model!
We have the 650-SP2, which is in general a farmer model. And we have the 800-1 which is in general a model for the professional hooftrimmer. Everybody happy? During 2011 we have seen an increasing demand for a crush which holds the middle between a 650-SP2 and a 800-1. Especially from France, so we have decided to offer in 2012 a model which fits in the middle => The 650-SP2++. This crush has the standard options of the 650-SP2, but with the following extra's: hydraulic front winch (for pulling a cow in, or pulling the crush on a trailer), hydraulic hoof support plates for front feet and back feet, hydraulic flow brakes on the leg winches in front and in the back, a double input system 380 and 220 Volt and a hydraulic front gate. For more info click here.
Two new video's of the 800-1 hydraulic hoof trimming crush in action
We have again two new video's of the 800-1 hydraulic hoof trimming crush in action. This video is taken in The Netherlands and shows two hooftrimmers working with the 800-1 and a catching fold. Because of this combination fast cow traffic through the crush is possible. As you will see in the movies below, the avarage time for trimming one cow (4 legs!) is 2,5 minutes. And that without too much stress for the cows. See for yourself below or take a look on our YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/CowCareSIA?feature=mhee):
Production times at the moment
Fast delivery is important, that's why in 2011 there has been put a lot of energy in decreasing the production times. An update concerning the production times at the moment:
- 800-1 => 3 months
- 650-SP2 => 5 weeks
- 650-SP2++ => 5 weeks
- 650-SP0 => 5 weeks
Technical improvements 800-1 hoof trimming crush
All 800-1 hoof trimming crushes ordered after 01-01-2012 will be standard delivered with the new improved hydraulic divider system. This improved system makes it possible to let the elevator of the crush come 10% higher. So now the crush + cow can be lifted up 55 centimer in the air. This is especially good news for the taller hoof trimmers. Also the hydraulic lifting is going faster. Olde versions of the crush need 7,5 seconds to elevate, with the new system this will cost only 4,5 seconds. This all improves the working efficience and hopefully also the work quality of the hooftrimmer.
Subidy project completed, 650-SP0 delivered!
In Latvia a lot of dairy farmers are increasing their farm sizes or are planning to do that in the coming year. Through subsidy project it is possible to get support for improving your farm. A couple of our clients have put hooftrimming crushes in these subsidy projects and the first hoof trimming crush acquired through these projects is delivered November 2011. At Kalna Mikas farm we have delivered a 650-SP0 electrical hoof trimming crush. For more information see the picture below and click on it.
The team of CowCare SIA wishes you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! We have enjoyed working with you in 2011 and we hope to continue our cooperation in the same way in 2012!
