The Cow lift is a lightweight device that can be easily applied to down cows. The [sling] lift is used for lifting down cows by the skeletal system using lightweight equipment that can be applied easily to a down cow and safely move it.
Background: The Cow lift was deleoped and tested at UC Davis in 2008. It was developed because the large animal lift did not support the cow properly. The sling is used with a forklift and boom attachment to lift the cow and safely move them to a float tank which allows the cow to stand so that an evaluation of the cow can take place.
