Cattle Crushes

steel cattle crush

Metalcorp's range of crushes and cradles. Please discuss your requirements with your local Metalcorp branch, as crush styles can vary from state to state. All Metalcorp crushes and headbail’s are now fitted with the revolutionary super-slide lock catching and restraining mechanism.  This mechanism has been extensively tested.  Metalcorp is proud to offer a full 5 year unconditional warranty on this unique catching and locking mechanism.

This new device allows for infinite catching positions and completely eliminates ratchet noise.  The head-lifter comes standard on every crush.  Jobs such as mouthing, bloat prevention, ear tagging, pink-eye treatment and dehorning are now much easier and safer for the operator.  This unit can be purchased separately and simply bolted onto other crushes.


FARMHAND® Crush

The FARMHAND® Crush is suited to both the large and small farmer who do not require repetitive veterinary operations, such as pregnancy testing and would ideally suite the Back Grounder or the Bullock Fattener, or can be used as a general purpose crush on both beef and dairy properties.

The split gates on both sides have high anti-kick sheeting at the bottom and anti-bruising oval rail at the top. A needling gate and adjustable chin bar lifter are both standard features. In addition, drop away handles can be adjusted in position and operated independently from front or back while other handle remains safely disengaged.
