Farm Safety In Animal Handling for vets

Farm safety is and always has been an issue, many farmers have learned from practical experience and "know the dangers" animals are unpredictable, farm equipment can get caught up in undesirable situations. Maintenance and pre use checks may not always happen when they should. Also many farmers are now on average older and we are engaged in more distractions (Mobile phones for example) With a focus on safety TechniPharm aims to provide some solutions and suggestions to minimise the dangers, we invite you to talk to us and help you where we can add value. for starters a simple 3 point check

1) always check equipment before use, yes that includes animal handling equipment, check the head bail is locking properly , check gate latches are locking, grease where need be and make sure trip hazards are removed or identified.

2) have a look at how you do things, are there better ways of doing it? are staff properly equipped? do you have designated safe area's (we recommend that cattle and people are kept separated when possible, so a handler or headsail open to a pen with stock is not safe)

3) what else can you do? have you considered an upgrade to more relevant up to date design? remember equipment designed in the past is based on what the past determined was "safe" Design and materials may have changed.

Some product and recommendations which may help

1) A Pacifier can help a great deal in keeping stock relaxed so you can do what ever you need to do with stock

2) Headbails with secondary safety locks may just be that extra safety you after, our Rotating yoke Headbail is the only headbail on the market with this feature.
Alternatively large stock units may consider full Hydraulic "hands off" equipped units
Technipharm provides a range of handling systems for Beef, Sheep and Dairy animal handling, we have been in business nearly 30 years and have an experienced team

3) Yard and Handlers with lots of gates and safe access points, properly designed access to headbails and stock treatment area's are critical design "hot" spots
We happy to help you with a handling facilities assessment and provide some recommendations for what needs doing. (base cost time @ $55/hr and travel at Km rate )

Gentle Animal Control Unit

Gentle In Design And Application

The Gentle Animal Control unit is a one piece pacifier revolutionary in design and application

Gentle neuron frequencies settle the animal in a passive state which allows work on the animal the happen reducing the dangers of injury.

The technology is widely recognised around the world in the treatment of back pain or severe muscle tension in humans.

How does it work: A very low electric pulse frequency is transmitted trough the cell walls of the rectum and creates a chain reaction in the muscle mas of the animal. This in turn reduces the ability of the animal to create the fright hormone cortisol which is the stress hormone. It also reduces the production of adrenaline which is the flight hormone. Both these hormones create the danger zones when handling animals and can result in injury to humans trough unexpected and movements.

Cortisol is a hormone you do not want to create in animals as it takes a long time for this to be re absorbed and subside and during that time 48-72 hours the production of the animal will significantly reduce.

Various 2 piece instruments connected by leads have been on the market for many years, this is the first one piece unit on the market, manufactured in Germany to the highest manufacturing and EU animal wellbeing standards and will be a great asset to many farmers

This tool is one piece including rechargeable batteries, low in maintenance and very low in cost of operation.
