“We were looking for new trailers as ours had passed their use by date. In a large farm of 1050 cows, a high staff numbers situation, with a team of 5 we were looking to keep things simple and look after staff and animal welfare. When we saw the Benic calf trailer, it immediately stood out as a trailer that would be good for staff, loading at standing height, but also importantly very easy on the calves. Having the calves hanging rather than standing in a trailer means they can’t fall over and be trampled. This is very helpful for calves that are not long born and we are finding calves arriving at the calf shed in much better condition, clean and no more bleeding navels. Although sometimes a frustration for the team, the set number of slings on the trailer has meant that trailers never get overloaded to save a trip; far better for the calves. The Benic trailer encourages our staff to treat the calves better by not throwing them in a trailer over the top and or throwing too many in a trailer to save a trip. We recommend the Benic calf trailer." Craig Zydenbos. Paeroa, Hauraki
