After acquiring Norton Livestock Handling Solutions in late 2022, Gallagher Australia has now launched an integrated cattle weighing solution to support Australian farmers.
Norton was founded in 1989 and has a strong reputation in southeast Australia for its high-quality, Australian-made sheep and cattle handling equipment, farm gates, and portable and permanent yards. Now owned by Gallagher, the brand is ready to supply its premium solutions Australia-wide, with the full support and service capabilities of the Gallagher Australia team.
Norton by Gallagher is a range of integrated crush solutions from two longstanding agriculture brands in Australia, presenting farmers with an innovative and premium solution for livestock data collection and animal health and traceability.
The first solution in this range is the Norton by Gallagher Weigh-Ready Crush. This solution turns Norton’s premium Cattle Crushes into collection points where livestock can be weighed, treated, drafted, and have information collected safely and easily.
At the top of the range, the Norton by Gallagher Super Heavy Duty Vet Squeeze Weigh-Ready Crush is made in Australia, built specifically for Australian farming conditions from long-lasting galvanised steel. With a full vet section for easy-access treating, and a parallel side squeeze operation for safe animal management, the super heavy-duty Weigh-Ready crush is a simple but premium product. In addition to this, Norton by Gallagher are introducing two more Weigh-Ready crush products, plus an economy crush product to cater to a wide range of Australian cattle farmers. All Weigh-Ready crushes come with an inbuilt floor, weigh scale swing arm, and EID antenna bracket to make it easy to add EID scanning equipment and load bars to weigh animals.
The Gallagher Animal Performance & Traceability product range is all compatible with the Weigh-Ready crush, creating a holistic solution that enables farmers to scan EID tags, collect and capture data on their livestock, and weigh and treat cattle all in one central location. This is a huge time-saver for farmers who want to increase the data collection capability and accuracy of their business, and invest in a safer, simpler livestock handling solution.
Mark Bennett, Business Development Manager for Animal Handling at Gallagher said the team is excited to release a range of thoughtfully designed Weigh-Ready Cattle Crushes that allow farmers to maximise the profitability of their farm.
“Norton by Gallagher is an effective solution, sold only through rural resellers, that caters to the data-conscious farmer who wants to simplify their operations and make all-in-one cattle weighing and treating safe and simple. It provides the rural reseller network with a unique opportunity to capture the combined margin offering of a full weighing and data capture solution and a crush,” he said.
With a strong team of sales and support staff placed across the country, Gallagher is well positioned to provide top-notch customer service, no matter how remote your business.
