VIDEO: Sheep Bulk Handler to enter the Irish market

O’Donovan Engineering has partnered with ProWay Livestock Equipment to deliver a new product range to the Irish market.

The companies will officially launch the product range at Tullamore Show on August 14th, 2022, at stand L62-L67.

According to O’Donovan Engineering, headquartered in Cork, there will be a full live demo at the one-day event with ProWay representatives.

For over two decades, ProWay Sheep Yards has earned a reputation as “industry-leading” for design features, strength, efficiency, longevity, and safety.

A spokesperson for O’Donovan Engineering told That’s Farming:

“At O’Donovan Engineering, our motto is quality and innovation give us the edge and this is the standard we hold ourselves to.”

“We source the best products from around the world to give our customers the best possible solution for all their livestock housing and handling needs.”

“That is why we are so happy to partner with ProWay to offer their sheep handling solutions across Europe and bring you the best handling systems in the world,” the spokesperson added.

Bulk Handler

A key feature of ProWay yards is its product called the ‘Bulk Handler’.

This specialised handling unit optimally positions and holds sheep in groups, by lifting the animal to waist height, improving sheep handling efficiency and safety across most husbandry tasks.

According to the designers, they are “ideal” for drenching, vaccinating, capsuling, mouthing, back lining, and tagging.

A spokesperson for ProWay Livestock Equipment said:

“One operator can use the sheep bulk handler easily as it fills easily. All sheep are accessible from either side. Two or more operators can also use it for multiple treatments.”
