The roller marking tables are easy to load and offer ample working space for vaccinating, earmarking and castrating.

The units are designed so there are no leg hooks to worry about and lambs getting caught. The unites can be configured to automatically spray for flystrike when the lamb is released and  - importantly - release the lamb back onto its feet. There is also the option of a double spray system.

Following two of trials, the company has added an optional full-length stainless steel base tray that fits between the rollers, eliminating the risk of lambs getting their feet caught. 

They are suitable for retrofitting to any units manufactured in 2012, with mounting only requiring three holes to be drilled in the original frame.
