Prattley industries Ltd are specialists in light weight automated animal management systems, using cutting edge technology. The company's prime aim is to produce quality animal handling equipment that helps customers attain maximum efficiency. The yarding and weighing systems are produced from high tensile alloy which is a strong yet lightweight product, used to avoid physical strain to the farm user. The yards and weighing /drafting units can be easily and safely set up and operated by one person. The design of the yard allows some movement in the yarding pen to prevent injury or crushing to animals. The Autodraft systems uses sensor technology on the back gate to prevent operator error. The Autodrafter incorporates exact weigh readings and automatic draft exit for maximum efficiency. While the range of Prattley Cattle Managers incorporate silent safety ratchet features and fully immobilizes cattle for handling and vet inspections. Incorporating technology into Animal management systems increases accuracy, time management and labor input on farms. An animal's life data can now be accurately recorded and stored by a weigh indicator and analyzed on a PC to give maximum returns on stock, show weight gain patterns, explore genetic/breeding dispositions and feed strategies. Technology has created the automation of manual tasks such as drafting meaning greater time management and lower labor input in yards.
