The O’Donovan Engineering Patented Cow Pow system is a unique feeding system that allows the cattle to push the barrier forward in order for them to reach the silage. The cow-pow is designed for block feeding cows or cattle for up to 2 or 3 days thus reducing labour significantly. The cattle are noticeably quieter and more content as they can follow a more natural grazing pattern. The Cow Pow has been in operation on farms in Ireland and across Europe for over 25 years.
The cow pow also reduces the need for feed space, gaining you up to 30% more cubicle or shed space. This system is tried and tested, from Iceland to Demark, the UK and all over mainland Europe, the cow pow is the next step in cattle housing technology.

Gain up to 30% more space for cubicles for dairy systems
Higher stocking rate in beef cattle pens
24-hour access to silage allows animals to follow a natural grazing pattern
10% higher silage intake/ savings on concentrates and improved yields
Notable tranquillity of stock Feeding only once or twice a week, saving up to 70% labour time Gain up to 30% more space for cubicles Higher stocking rate in beef cattle pens 24-hour access to silage allowing animals to follow a natural grazing pattern 10% higher silage intake/ savings on concentrates Healthier stock, fewer injuries Improved yields

“The fact that something that is moved by cows all winter, is working so well after 17 years, can still be push back by hand easily, has virtually no maintenance and has no signs of not working is amazing!!” The average silage intake has increased by 5kg per cow. Farmer Co. Armagh.
“I have had 64 cows with 24 feeding spaces…this alone is a huge efficiency saving of the Cow Pow. When one considers my cows silage intake are 33% above average figures, this has been truly a win/win purchase for me.” Farmer Co. Antrim
“Cows can now gain weight on ad-lib silage during dry period, therefore less meal feeding & a lot more time for productive management than forking in silage…Money well spent, labour saving, improved cow welfare and peace of mind for manager” Farmer Co. Limerick
