"E-Z Hoof Care Frames"
The frames are constructed out of heavy-wall 2-in. galvanized tubing. They measure 42-in. wide and are about 6 ft. tall when in place. Attached to the sides of any free-stall with four clamps, they're equipped with a winch and nylon rope on top and a chain (not shown in photo) on bottom. You use the winch and rope to lift the cow's hooves and the chain keeps the animal in the stall.
They're ideal for immediate treatment of hoof problems, largely because they make treatment available in a place that's familiar to the animal.
They sell for $275 (Canadian). (Arno & Angela Janssen, A&A E-Z Brush & Oiler, 4133 Egremont Drive, Strathroy, Ontario, Canada N7G 3H6; ph 800 482-6495)
