Saving the backs of Aussie farmers!
Instead of the traditional swinging gates which open into the face of the animal, the Farmhand sheep and goat handler has bi-fold entry gate which open to the side of the animal. The exit gate is a traditional swinging gate with a slam latch.
The animal is restrained by two independently operated bars and rotated onto it's side at a comfortable working height. The height of the "table" is approximately 600mm.
Even a heavy dorper ram is restrained and rotated with relative ease.
The Farmhand handler makes the job of working with goats an easy one.
