Cattle Lifter Down Cow Hip Lifter Max. capacity 1500kg Strong Durable Cow Equipment
When the cow lift should be used?
When A ‘down’ cow that is recumbent (lying down on her chest or side) and unable to stand unassisted.
Lifting should only be done if it is effective and supervised. Cows that are lifted ineffectively or unsupervised
and have a poorer chance of recovery than those who are not lifted. Cows that are unable to stand ‘effectively’ or
are unwilling to try to stand ‘effectively’ are best nursed without lifting, .
Please pay attention that Cow ‘lifters’ are not cow ‘hangers’!
Effective lifting means that the cow is able to stand in a natural position and take some of her own weight.
If the cow is hanging from a hip clamp or slouching in a sling, without taking any weight on their legs, i
t can cause her more damage. Supervision by a competent stockperson is important because down cows tire easily and should then be immediately placed down.
Over-lifting can also be a problem as the pressure from lifting devices can cause swellings and pain.
Hip lifters are the easiest method to use and the most common. They are ideal for a quick lift, but are not suitable for extended support due to the trauma they may cause to the hip bones and muscles. They are most useful if the cow can stand when lifted, such as simple milk fever cases.
