Hydraulic Cattle Crushes
A hydraulic cattle crush is operated using hydraulic controls for the tail gate, head gate, squeeze, and head sweep. A well designed hydraulic cattle crush will adhere to low-stress cattle handling practices, with focus on keeping the animal and the producer safe. When looking for a hydraulic cattle crush, you want to ensure it is durable, well-made, and quiet. Specifically, watch for engines that are mounted on top of the crush, as the noise made by the engine can spook animals and cause them to baulk as a result.
