CowCare managers took part in one of the largest agricultural exhibitions in the world – EuroTier2018

21/11/2018|

In November, two CowCare managers took part in one of the largest agricultural exhibitions in the world – EuroTier2018.

Hens Mekking represented KVK at the KVK stand and Jan Brand-Kruth represented FinnHoof at the FinnHoof stand. Both rated the exhibition as a success, 9 out of 10.

Our CowCare managers came across already existing faces and met new faces from all over the world – Germany, Russia, The Netherlands, Italy, Lithuania, Poland, Greece, Finland, and many other countries.

The exchange of experience and practical information with people from all over the world helped our managers to understand newest trends and actualities in the agriculture sector. It was beneficial to communicate with existing as well as potential clients to understand their way of working and to realize that there is always more than one way of doing things. It was a pleasure to share insights about hoof trimming, current trends and information about the dairy industry. In brief, good communication and sharing of experiences.

Next to the interest in our existing products and the KVK SP2 and SP3 crushes, we were delighted to see the interest in our new product DD-DELETE and the step away from formalin or antibiotic based products. Exactly this step into an alternative direction confirms our movement with the CowCare Care Product Line and a non-formalin and non-antibiotic direction to fight digital Dermatitis.

Thank you to everyone who met us,

Your CowCare Team

We received a movie from our client Riccardo Vitali from Italy. He has build the simultaneous claw fixation unit on his crush last week and he is with much pleasure working with this new add unit for KVK 800-1. Looks great and fast.

Simultaneous Claw Fixation add-on unit for the 800-1

We introduce to you the “simultaneous claw fixation unit”. This add-on unit ensures that both all claws are fixated at the same time. This innovative product (patent pending) is developed by a Dutch engineering company and commisioned by a Dutch hoof trimmer (Wim Hochstenbach). Wim is working with a KVK 800-1, so the unit needs to be easy to install on any 800-1.

So why did they develop this add-on unit for him?
1. Ergonomics: A more ergonomic way of working. Because both back legs are fixated at the same time, less actions need to be performed. Normally half way you need to put away your angle grinder to move the fixation plate to the other leg and after that pick up your angle grinder again. All these actions are not needed when using the simultaneous claw fixation unit.
2. Faster: To do the same amount of cows in a shorter time. After long testing (9 months), we found out that it shortens the time you are trimming between 5 and 10%. On an 8 hour working day, that means 30 minutes faster finished with your job.

The unit has been tested for 9 months on a KVK 800-1 and at the moment the first 2 units are running in the Netherlands. The Dutch engineering company has asked us to put it on the market, because we see that this could also be very usefull for other hoof trimmers.

The simultaneous claw fixation unit fits on any KVK 800-1, without altering the structure of the crush. It is an add-on unit.
An instruction movie how to install it, can be found on the CowCare YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/CowCareSIA

Price? € 2950,- excluding VAT, including delivery in the EU.
