The Saracen Yoke is self-closing and automatic, meaning it is activated by the forward movement of the animal trying to fit through the visible gap between the yoke arms. This style of yoke is well suited to animals that are not handled frequently as their restless nature during handling makes them more likely to pursue the visible gap which in turn will activate the yoke.
The Saracen Automatic Yoke offers a cattle handling facility great flexibility in terms of the required number of operators. Once the yoke is set ready for the next animal, a single operator can move up the race to encourage the cow forwards with no additional handlers required to activate the yoke. The demanding nature of manually catching the cow in the yoke is greatly reduced with an automatic yoke.
Fitted to either side of the yoke are the release handles. Should an animal manage to activate the yoke without
putting its head through, the release handles allow the yoke to quickly reset without the animal needing to first exit the crush. An operator handle fitted to the front of the yoke is designed to assist the animal’s exit from the crush if required.
The squeeze panels operate quickly and quietly combined with the Chieftain or Saracen yoke, this squeeze crush enables the operator to perform tasks whilst keeping the animal calm and safe.
Features unique to this product include:
- An all-round super quiet design featuring rubber bumpers to minimise sound and vibration from moving parts on the squeeze mechanism
- Squeeze controls on both sides of the crush allowing for any hand operation
- Four side doors on each side of the crush providing substantial access to the animal’s flanks
- Floating panel design for minimal effort operation
- Quick squeeze release handle on either side of the crush allowing any hand operation and increasing efficiency
- Ratchet style rump bar for keeping cattle forwards in the crush
