Find out for yourself why many Batt-Latch owners find they cannot run their farms as efficiently without them. They are as surprised as we were, when we started manufacturing them in 1995.

The Batt-Latch, a portable temporary gate timer, is great for dairy herds, especially when there is extra feed at the dairy platform. Feedpads, in-shed feeders, even good grass after milking, will bring all the cows up to the milking platform, saving hundreds of hours a season.

That's worth $10,000 for each herd of 400 cows, but the other half of the benefit is the surprising average 70% savings in lameness costs reported by farmers. Why? no more rushing the cows to milking, they set the pace themselves, so they don't get sore hooves as often, or maybe not at all. Simple. Test it out for yourself, this season.

On some farms, having this timer can mean that increases in production don't need to trigger the employment of extra full-time staff.

Less lameness means more production, fewer empty cows, easier milkings, lower vet costs, less bypassed milk and antibiotic risk, healthier cows, and less stress for staff and farm owners. On top of the savings there, many farms could be saving 1-2 hours of labour a day per herd.

Off-season it can be used on runoffs, for break feeding, catching feral deer, etc. You can hold the cows back after milking, too.
