Cotter Crate  - how does it work

Sheep Handling, Weighing & EID System

The best way to make life easy on a sheep farm is to provide excellent handling facilities to take the effort out of sheep work and reduce handling, saving you time and money. This is sheep handling as it should be, giving you the time to enjoy farming while improving your profitability and productivity. Providing the best usability, accessibility, and serviceability, all in one system.

SmartWorm - how does it work

Enables Targeted Selective Treatment (TST) of wormers

Drench resistance is common in the majority of sheep flocks in Ireland and the UK. Reducing the use of these drugs to as much as necessary but as little as possible is key to protect against the development of further resistance. SmartWorm provides the most usable technology available to  target treatment to the animals that need it in real time.  Integrated app reducing drench use by 40-50% without compromising on animal performance and welfare.
