To use as an alternative to the regular wood blocks. Glue in place with same adhesive. From Bovi-Bond, USA.
Oneshot is the ideal system for applying ink to stencils, particularly for marking wool bales. It consists of a special sealed ink cartridge which is pierced when it is attached to either a roller or brush head assembly. The ink flow to the roller or brush is then controlled by way of the thumb operated valve/pump on the head assembly. The cartridge becomes a convenient handle, and ink is applied with no mess. One-shot ink is suitable for all porous surfaces, such as wool packs and other fabrics. The roller and brush heads come with a cover to prevent drying out between uses. Clean up with turpentine.

“Shoof” is a shoe-for-a-hoof. This product is used for the treatment of lameness in cattle.
The Shoof is purposefully constructed in a very open manner. This allows the hoof to “breathe” which is essential for a fast recovery. The medication and bandage supplied with the Shoof are also essential for successful treatment.
The Shoof copper-sulphate medication is effective in curing and hardening the hoof-horn, even in the worst conditions. The special Shoof bandage supplied acts like a filter, keeping dirt out and the copper-sulphate in, even if the animal is walking in very bad conditions (eg: dairy farm roads and yards, and muddy paddocks).
Cattle Shoof can be re-used many times with our Shoof Refill-Kit components. Non-standard bandage or medication may cause failure of Shoof. Each Cattle Shoof will last years of re-use.
The greatest advantage of Easy Bloc is the very flexible side wall, which allows a good fit to a wide variety of hoof sizes and shapes and also enables easy removal. Next is the longer and better positioned sole for greater stability, and the slightly extended toe cavity enabling a better fit on overgrown hooves. Easy Bloc is supplied as a complete kit, with four or 12 shoes and the two-part liquid and powder glue components required to attach them. Procedure for use is as follows:
1. The affected claw is examined and treated as required to ensure a fast recovery.
2. The non-affected claw is cleaned and trimmed to a natural shape, compatible with the Easy Bloc.
3. Set the Easy Bloc into the specially designed holder in the package lid, where the glue components are easily added and mixed.
4. Remove Easy Bloc from holder and apply to the healthy claw. Leave in place two to three minutes.
5. Release the cow. Easy Bloc should be removed after 3-4 weeks, if it has not shed naturally.
Easy Bloc powder and liquid are also available separately in 12-pack quantities.

The Daisy-Lifter cow lifter is designed for medium term support for a down cow. The cow is supported over a large body area, thus reducing pressure points. Fully adjustable to any size animal, and manufactured from long-life materials. The Daisy-Lifter is supplied as a complete kit in a handy carry-bag. The Daisy-Lifter is made in Standard and X-Large models. The Standard model will suit all medium size dairy breeds (up to medium-size holstein). The X-Large model is 20cm longer and wider, and should be used for large-size dairy breeds and larger beef cows. Recommended maximum lift load for the Daisy-Lifter is 1,000kg.

Liftease is new from Shoof's product development department. Liftease has been developed to improve usability and outcomes from existing sling-lift devices. Firstly, Liftease is very strong. We do not believe it can be damaged in use. Liftease is designed to increase cow comfort by preventing or reducing sweating inside fully-enclosed slings. When used for longer periods, these can lead to skin ulcers and hide damage. Liftease is easy to use. It is recommended that the cow is first lifted by a hip-clamp device, but if such a device is not available, the cow can be rolled onto the Liftease, or the Liftease can simply be pulled through under the down animal. The Liftease lift straps each have three lift loops, to give variation of lift height. These loops are designed to fit on a silage fork, and are less likely to slip off than metal hooks. Liftease is designed to lift up to 2,000kg without risk. Liftease can equally be used for horses.

The 'hardware kit' includes 4 x steel 'C' hooks suitable for attachment to forklift teeth or other devices that the Liftease strap loops are not suitable for. (See inset above.)

RMT testing has always been quite a tedious procedure either slowing up milking considerably, or requiring an extra hand in the shed. The X-Spurt paddle makes RMT testing a fast and efficient one-hand operation as the 300ml (10fl.oz) X-Spurt reagent reservoir is also the handle for the paddle. Milk is entered in the paddle chambers and the paddle tilted in the normal way to reduce the samples to the usual 3ml (0.1fl.oz). A quick squeeze of the X-Spurt handle then enters equal amounts of reagent at the same time to all four samples. Swirling the paddle mixes the samples for usual coagulation recognition. The bottle capacity is 300ml, enough to RMT test about 15 cows.
The Universal lamb/kid teat can be used on a variety of bottles, or on ‘calfeteria’ type feeders with 11mm o.d. tube delivery. For fitting to bottles with necks from 25mm to 35mm diameter, the outer ‘skirt’ should be pulled upwards and the teat plugged into the bottle and the skirt folded down. (If the bottle has no other air inlet, a staple or piece of string over the neck can be used to allow air entry.)
Note: For all feeders the teat slit must be in a vertical plane. To increase flow for bottle feeding, the teat can be cut in an X.

The HK Standard (previously HK121) calf puller is the world’s original calf puller. Made in Germany, it is 100% reliable. The grooved shaft never slips. The modern, model 2020 traction device, gives smooth pulling power on both foward and backward strokes. Pulling can be either tandem (legs together) or sequential (one after the other) depending on hooks engaged. A thumb-operated quick-release lever is incorporated. An excellent feature is the split-apart 1.7m-long main pole, making for an easy transport on bike or quad. And easy storage. (Disassembled length 85cm o.a.) Supplied with specially-produced ‘padded’ nylon ropes.

Our flat-braid ropes are made especially for Shoof. They feature stitched-flat areas before each eye loop. These reduce leg tissue damage. The 12mm rope is supplied in both red and white colours. This can be useful when the calf legs are not yet visible. Set the red rope on the left and the white rope on the right one. Then as you are manoeuvring the calf you know which leg you are pulling. Very useful. Ropes are a generous 1.8m long - useful to go around your back if need be for better purchase..
