Having got throught the ravages of PSA, kiwifruit production has bounced back delivering record harvests and record prices for orchards.
In fact, the company’s Sheep Handler and Weigh Crate products are common sights all around the country.
Hecton’s Sheep Handler has a reputation for speed and versatility.
Built for strength, it is the perfect unit for dagging, crutching, bellying, foot trimming, vaccinating, wool sampling, mouthing, eye wigging, loading of AI cradles – or any task requiring a sheep or goat to be mobilised on its side. Stock are held in a comfortable position during operation allowing full access to the underside of the animal, so no heavy lifting is required and operation is easy on the back.
The Hecton Sheep Handler is available in both air-operated and manual (no air required) versions.
The company is offering – for a limited time – a promotional price for its Weigh Crate.
Having multiple jobs to do on your flock does not necessarily mean you need more staff or help to do it. The Weigh Crate is a low cost, quality-build solution that can be simply added into your yards. The crate can be hard mounted into an existing sheep race in the woolshed or it can be mobile and added into temporary yards.
Hecton says the multipurpose product is ideal to use for tagging, drenching, mouthing, vaccinating and drafting.
By adding load bars, you can also weigh your stock.
The product is modular, additional components can be added at any stage to include dagging and ring crutching capability.
