Backing the Tank
Leroy arrives at the farm.
His pick-up bed is loaded
with 700 gal. of body temp
water and he tows the Aqua
tank which carries the accessory
equipment (pump, hoses, and
tank attachments). Leroy backs the Aqua tank to the cow.
Small tractors, ATVs, or our custom
hand truck can be used to back the
tank to the cow in the barn. This 2nd calf heifer should be on a
soft surface to reduce the chances
of doing more damage to herself.
From here she will be taken to an
isolated place with good footing
where she can, if all goes well, regain
full strength after walking out of the
tank. The Aqua tank is an all-in-one tool.
Leroy will show how the tank gently
transports this heifer to the selected
spot for recovery. Setting-up to pull the cow into the tank
After the end doors are removed and the
equipment taken out, Leroy disinfects
the inside of the tank, including the mat. Leroy puts a rope halter on the cow
and gets ready to roll her on the drag mat. Another person helps. Usually two strong
people can roll the cow on the mat.
