New system makes treating sheep much easier

A new version of the popular Alligator mobile handling system aims to make it easier to treat and sort of large groups of sheep.

Launched by Allflex, the Alligator Pro features a number of design improvements which enhance the system’s ease of operation and improves the movement of sheep through the system. It was launched at last month’s Royal Welsh Show.

The Alligator Pro features larger diameter wheels for improved road holding and better off-road clearance. It adds a manual or electric winch capable of easily raising and lowering the steel chassis on and off its wheels to further enhance mobility.

“Like previous Alligator systems, the Alligator Pro uses a modular design which can easily be tailored to suit individual flock requirements,” says Chris Byrne, Allflex’s stock management systems specialist.

“The winch-operated chassis is handmade in Oxford, with production of the new-style hurdles and gates moving to a specialist fabricator, making the new Alligator PRO longer-lasting, harder-wearing and more durable than ever before.

“We’ve listened to feedback from a number of existing Alligator users and made some subtle but key design improvements to create a strong yet lightweight system which can be operated by a single user to handle and treat large groups of sheep.”

The updated system features redesigned hurdles which retain the original Alligator’s round-profile corners – for ease of pulling groups of hurdles over rough ground. Upright bars between the upper and second rails improve the flow of sheep through the system.

The Alligator PRO is available in three sizes: equipped with enough hurdles to create a yard capable of holding up to 250, 500 or 750 sheep.  Each system includes a 5ft forcing gate and pen for 8-12 sheep, a three-way drafting race, and a treatment, worming and drenching race.

The Alligator PRO system is also compatible with a choice of manual or electronic flock management, recording and weighing equipment to worm, drench, foot bathe, weigh, sort, tag and vaccinate large numbers of sheep.
