Whether you are planning a new shed or improving an existing one, a Wrangler is essential equipment for every farm.
Lame cows reduce profit. It has been estimated each lame cow costs between $800 and $1200 in lost production, extra labour, higher empty rates, and treatment costs. It is therefore important that any lame cows are checked and treated at the first sign of lameness. The Wrangler enables staff to quickly, easily, and safely assess a suspect hoof before it develops into a bigger problem.

The Wrangler makes hoof care hassle free. Safe for the cow, safe for the farmer, as well as quick, easy, and efficient. Designed by a farmer for New Zealand conditions, it was made to be strong, durable, with little mainenance required. Not only is the Wrangler the best way to do hooves, it is also unbeatable for calving cows and any other handling requirements. Fixed, Mobile, or Road Registered, there's a Wrangler to suit every farm.
An exciting new addition to our Wrangler range is the Ride Over Gate. A pushover with the 4 Wheeler but still totally stock proof, the ROG makes it easy to cruise the farm or move mobile calf feeders. Inventer Phil MacDonald was a deserving receipient of the James and Wells Patent Attorney Award at 2011 NZ National Agricultural Fieldays.
In addition to the standard Gate Headbail, we are pleased to now offer a Walk Through Headbail option.
