IAE Calving hurdle is a simple way to assist with calving when the time comes. Isolate the pregnant animal and safely restrain her to enable the birth process to be controlled and calm using the calving hurdle.
Two types are available, the standard version has a 5 railed gate with fixed rails that closes to the side of the animal to position her safely inside the special calving yoke. The Deluxe features removable rails inside the gate so that if Caesarean section needs to be performed, this can be carried out by removing the central rails instead of having to open the gate.
The special yoke is positioned differently than a standard feeding yoke height to allow for the fact that during birth there will be a higher frequency of animals going to ground, so the dimensions the yoke is set at take this into account, to avoid the risk of choking if this happens.
The calving hurdle is set at one hand only as Caesarean is only carried out on one side of the animal.
