Fast & Safe Animal Handling
Your cows’ happiness is our top priority and our state-of-the-art WOPA hydraulic cattle crush includes integrated foot support blocks that allow us to create a stress-free environment for fast, safe and effective treatment.
This high-tech cattle crush also allows us to quickly treat large numbers of cows and it is also extremely mobile and stable. We can set up wherever is most convenient for your farm, all we need to operate is a standard 240v power supply, a concrete pad and a high-pressure water supply.
- All equipment is cleaned and disinfected before we enter your property. The WOPA animal handler is cleaned with a high-pressure water blaster before being sprayed with a concentrated solution of isopropyl alcohol (a powerful disinfectant that kills viruses, bacteria and fungi).
- On the farm we take hoof hygiene seriously and take the time to clean off your cow’s hooves before we start the trimming and treatment process.
- Before leaving any farm we dispose of all consumable products used then disinfect our equipment and vehicles using isopropyl alcohol.

We had The Hoofman in for the first time and were amazed how great a job he does and the cows love it, so relaxed. We will be getting him back again
On behalf of my parents Shaun and Vanessa Dempsey. We were really impressed with the set up. Johan provided a very clean, tidy, professional service and was happy to take the time to explain each process,the cows weren't stressed at all. Many Thanks
Still in awe of this mornings visit from Johan and his set up. What a fantastic, easy, no drama way to do cows feet. Super fast and knowledgeable. Love Love Love ... will be using The Hoofman again
Thanks a lot Johan. I was very impressed with ur machine and the job that was done. Cows were not stressed at all. Will see u again for sure.
Genuinely cannot believe how amazing Johan is - first time observing Johan at work and can not rate him enough.
I am really nosy and ask a million questions anyway, so it was great to be able to have a chat while he was working.
Cows were calm and well looked after.
Definitely the top man for the job!
Today Johan gave my Scottish Highlander Morag a second chance at life. She had an infection brewing and had been lame for some time. I am absolutely thrilled with Johan's service, professionalism and calm and quiet manner. He was so patient with Morag as she was very hesitant about going into the crush, but he gave her the time she needed to settle and walk in.
Excellent. Highly recommended, cows calm and done in no time
Awesome day with hoofman highly recommend will be getting him back 10/10
Johan is the best I've ever seen when it comes to lame cows.
