An article on O’Donovan Engineering and Prattley handling  systems from the Farming Independent 


“It’s amazing the efficiency that you can get out of a unit if it is set-up right and utilises the right kit,”

“Obviously I’m a fan of Prattley but I also own a 20-year-old Prattley unit that has handled a million sheep during its lifetime, and is still fully operational.

Potterton also believes that farmers should adopt the approach of world-renowned animal behaviouralist, Temple Grandin, to appreciate the value of Prattley’s design.
