A lift used for cows that cannot stand up on their own anymore, such as right after giving birth. The gummed clamps are adjustable to the cow’s size. The lift is placed over the cow’s hips and tightened as necessary by cranking the handle, which secures the cow as she is lifted. This enables cow to regain the use of her legs so she can be milked or treated. Beam hook sold separately.

Crank opens to 34"
Adjusts to size cow. Large 10" padded rings are placed over the pelvic bones and tightened by turning the crank. Chain is placed into ring at top of lift and animal can be raised with a loader or block and tackle. Collapses for easy storage. Ideal for downer cows, prolapsed uterus, and calving paralysis.
