To address the need for a safe and efficient lead up to individual sheep handlers, ProWay have designed, built and tested a sheep tub with a curved adjustable alley. This provides an ideal lead up to a handler, scan crate, classing box, or similar.
Designed for operators who are undertaking more individual processing of sheep, the concept is based on our cattle tub, allowing bulk numbers to be reduced to single file down an alley. The tub and alley are curved and sheeted to promote stock flow and the curve has proven popular with stud breeders who need to quickly process large numbers of individual animals
Today, many producers are doing more individual processing of sheep. Research has shown there is an enormous variation between individual animals in terms of weight gain, feed conversion etc. which in turn influences profitability. Processing sheep as individuals gives producers an opportunity to assess stock separate from the herd and ultimately gives superior analytical data.
