www.winkelmfg.comwill be a lot easier with the new Winkel Calf Processor, designed and built by Winkel Manufacturing. Made for 250 pound or smaller-weight animals, the Calf Processor is versatile enough to match most calf cradles brands.

The unit consists of a 120″ diameter half circle available either clockwise or counterclockwise and connects to an 8′ long by 14″ wide alley equipped with entry and exit sliding gates. The alley sides are 4′ tall and enclosed with sheeted steel to improve the calves’ safe flow. An operator can easily walk through the alley as there are no overheads. The alley will hold three 200-pound calves simultaneously, and the half-circle will accommodate the workflow.

Slide gates on roller bearings allow for quick and smooth traffic control. The sliders’ base is 5″ channel iron which gives stability with less chance of calves moving the unit around. Winkel Adapter Posts are available from the drop pen to the cattle panel hook-up. The unit is set up for left or right side entry of the half-circle.
