Fixed Cattle Crush

A fixed cattle crush is an essential feature in any farmyard to handle animals safely. ODEL cattle crushes offer customers a simple adaptable crush system, hinged or fixed crush panels and a range of accessories, we’ll design your cattle crush to suit your needs.

It is better to rely on animal behavioural principles instead of sheer force to restrain and control animals during handling. Fine-tuning the design of animal handling facilities will enhance animal welfare and reduce stress and injuries. This applies to both animal and user. When designing a crush, parlour exit race or any other handling facilities there are several factors to consider. Safety, cow flow,  management and handling of livestock, location, future developments, your yard layout and how it will fit into your day to day activities. Implementing all these factors is not always possible, but all should be considered and are good starting points for design. Most of all using handling facilities should not be a chore, a well-designed handling facility should fit in with your day to day routine seamlessly.

“Good facilities allow farmers to expand production and incomes and add to the asset value of the farm. They also lead to a better quality of life for the farm family by reducing the workload and the drudgery. In many cases, particularly on dairy farms, buildings pay for themselves over a 7-10 year period. This is especially true when capital grant and tax savings are available.”
