Visitors have a feast when they view the Algar range of animal handling equipment at those agricultural shows where the firm exhibits because the friendly and knowledgeable Algar staff welcomes them heartily and know exactly what the livestock farmer needs for every job on his farm. What’s more, the implements manufactured by Algar are interesting, sturdy and useful on every farm.
Algar undertook a tour through the country recently and exhibited at various shows such as NAMPO Cape in Bredasdorp, Alfa Expo in Parys and the Swartland Show in Moorreesburg and at every show visitors say the same about Algar – “dependable equipment of the highest order”.
The variety of Algar’s livestock handling equipment makes the life of the farmer much easier, says Carin Nortjé of Algar: “Our products undergo a continuous renewing process to make animal handling even easier for the farmer, mainly because the devices are safe and time-saving.”
She says their neck and body clamp for cattle will soon undergo major exciting changes.
Two of the dependable products livestock farmers could see at NAMPO Cape:
Three-way sheep sorting or classing gate
Never before has it been so easy to ensure that the right sheep is selected for the paddock where it is intended to go. The Algar sorting or classing gate is attached to the farmer’s crush. The sheep walk into it and is then separated to go where they have to be.
Sheep weighing/inspecting/classing clamp
The name says it all: This versatile piece of equipment allows the farmer to do almost everything: The sheep move from a paddock into the crush and is bunched up. The farmer can then open the gate, scan the ewe to see if she is in lamb, or the sheep can be weighed, classed or dosed. The pen has an extra base to make it higher so that the worker it can stand upright when scanning the sheep.
