CowMander 600/700

Herd your cows stress-free and keep the collection yard clean automatically

GEA Farm Technologies has re-thought the concept of backing gates while putting the emphasis on cow comfort and working efficiency. The result: the CowMander series herds the cows while keeping them free from stress and keeps the collection yard clean.

Fast drive

No matter which type or make of milking parlour you have, the robust, cow-friendly gate from the CowMander series is easy to control via the automatic controller. The electro-hydraulic drive enables forward and reverse travel at various speeds. The drive unit can be installed either on the left-hand or right-hand side. Whatever the slope (uo to 10%) or width of your waiting area (up to 15m) GEA Farm Technologies has a CowMander to suit your individual requirements - with appropriate framework for the collection yard if required.

Gentle Drive

The cow-friendly design of the CowMander series provides an extremely high level of comfort for the animals. An audio signal prompts the herd to move forwards. Cows that lag behind are gently encouraged to keep keep moving directly and without deviation towards the milking parlour. Safety is an important consideration: if there is too much resistance, the gate will stop, go back a set distance before proceeding forwards once again.
