Gathering livestock

Easier gathering of livestock when it suits you

There are times when it would be desirable to gather animals from the rangelands to meet a specific market opportunity, or to ‘fine-tune’ stock numbers in response to seasonal conditions. But it is has not been straightforward to do this, given the time and cost of mustering – until now.

We have designed a ‘Skimmer Box’ to provide a practical way for livestock managers to positively interact with their animals and collect (harvest) small numbers at time that is convenient to do so, without it becoming a major job.

The Skimmer Box is not a replacement for Trap Yards – is it an additional tool available for station (ranch) managers.
