When it comes to running a livestock operation or cattle ranch, having the right equipment can save you time and money while maximizing your efforts. One of the items we offer here at D-S Livestock Equipment in Frostburg, Maryland, is the high-quality Matador Calf Table.
Both chutes and calf tables help to make your job easier, both on your handler and on the animal. Calving season is a busy, stressful time for any livestock operation and chutes and calf tables allow you to brand, castrate, dehorn and implant calves more easily. Not only do calf tables make the job less stressful for the calf, but it also makes the job easier on your handler’s back no matter what their strength or size.
To help ranchers with their calves, our Matador Calf table has many features, one of the main ones is that it is electroplated with zinc and completely galvanized to prevent rust. It also has both a solid floor and sides so the calf can come in quickly and comfortably towards the headgate with minimal distractions.
The Matador Calf Table can easily hold calves from 300 to 350 lbs, which are centered in the headgate as the sides of the chute evenly squeezes them on both sides. The result is that it is easy to roll the calf over on their side, and their head doesn’t get the chance to bobble around thanks to the unit’s adjustable head table. A material strip — which feels like carpet — on the back side helps support the calves more securely as they can’t slide around. The headgate and adjustable back support help the calves remain stable.
While using a calf table is a significant investment, it can help you quickly process and monitor your calves, get them ready to join the main herd while keeping them happier and less stressed, as well as allowing you to provide them with the veterinary care they require.
