The Vink Beef Cattle is an upgraded version of the standard and famous Vink Calving Jack. It is specially constructed of heavy duty stainless steel components to fit larger beef cattle. The main pole is 1.8m long and is a larger tube made of heavier material. The rump frame is enlarged to 57cm width to suit very heavy European breeds such as Charolais etc. The frame is also of stronger materials to prevent any bending, and the traction device features a longer handle for greater power with reduced effort in difficult births. Also the pull is sequential on this model, to reduce birthing trauma with large calves.

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.)

Quick-Lift is new from Shoof's product development department. It's features are - simplicity of use, ease of use, big 50mm-o.d. pipe is comfortable fit for cow pin bones, high strength and light weight. The Quick-Lift is simply slipped onto the pin bones and ratcheted tight with a few quick strokes on the ratchet lever. If the cow needs to be released quickly, the ratchet lever is simply pulled down - just like normal load tie-downs, and the clamp instantly opens. Quick, easy, no fuss. No handle to lose, or spindle to damage or bend. Replacement ratchet assembly is available (complete with strap) and is easily fitted. This is a great device and a credit to the Shoof development team. Design application No. NZ418621.
This valuable product is used in cases of calving paralysis which commonly cause knuckling-under of one, or sometimes both, hind legs. The BOS splint is simply applied to the back of the leg using the special adhesive elastic bandage included in the kit. The splint bottom should be at ground level. Generally application of the BOS splint will allow the animal normal mobility almost immediately after application. The small splint is suitable for Jersey or smaller Friesian cows, and the large splint for larger Friesian or Holstein cows and the x-large for very large Holstein. Leave the splint in place from 4-7 days, depending on the severity of the condition. In all cases the splint can be moulded somewhat to the individually required shape by use of a heat gun or hair dryer. The BOS splint can be reused with a new bandage. Dimension length o.a.
Note: Administration of anti-inflammatories at initial splint application may also be beneficial. Consult your veterinarian.

Recent research has confirmed that several diseases, including E.coli scours and Joint-ill, find their way into the newborn animal via the umbilical cord. Sprays and dips can also cause problems. Our umbilical clamps are the solution. Simply attach as soon as possible after birth. Remove after 24 to 48 hours. Place clamp approximately 5mm from top of umbilical cord. Cut cord below clamp to prevent suckling. Clamps can be disinfected and re-used if desired, or can be left to fall off naturally. Ideal for piglets as clamps are large enough not to fall through creep floors. Clamps 65mm long o.a.

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..
