We use a number of different blocks on cows to help in the improvement of mobility on cattle with problems on farm visits..
Bolted ½ “ rubber matting to the yoke to reduce radial nerve , to reduce the noise of the yoke door, to absorb shoulder in pack when entering the crush add comfort to cows that push into a yoke.
We use a rubber belly band for comfort to the animal, less slip over the rib, easy to clean and lay flat when lowered.
We put elastic rope to the belly band chain to bring the belly band back to the correct position when loading the crush,
Put on the lock catch for the front leg pumps as the faster the pump the more weepage so we lock the leaver when trimming problem claws

Charging both KVKs every weekend ready to correct the uneven charge during a weeks work.
Full race system can be carried on the KVK when needed. Prattly handling system suits the KVK system, very light, tall and well built.
Over the years I have purchased a number of Wopa trimming crushes and adapted them to suit the hoof trimmer and UK farms.
Looked at the new Wopa 61 and didn’t think it addressed the concerns a hoof trimming contractor has. The dairy industry is growing and the machines need to be more efficient but still simple, reliable, affordable and work within regulations set out by health & safety and other government organisations.
We purchased a static Wopa 51 in January 2017 and will keep a diary of what alterations and upgrades we do over the next few months.
I would appreciate any input from other trimmers.
