O’Donnell Engineering from Emly, Co Tipperary, has just brought a new cattle-drafting system to the market. The system allows a farmer to automatically draft their cattle during handling to separate holding pens and is especially useful for drafting cows after milking.

Michael O’Donnell says they have spent eight months testing the system and are very happy with how it is performing. He says they received a lot of positive feedback at the Tullamore Show from farmers who were interested in upgrading existing facilities to draft cows in heat after milking.
