1. What is the purpose of an "Animal Ambulance"?


The concept is simple…… to transport sick or recovering livestock to OR from the "Hospital" in the feedlot

TOP

2. How may I see the "Animal Ambulance"operate?

Am Agra Inc. will contact an associated feedlot that is using the unit. Arrangements will be made for your permission to see a demo.

TOP

3. Who will advise me?

Am Agra welcomes your consultant vet or nutritionist to be involved early in the process of decision making.

TOP

4. Do you "Demo" in the Feedyard?

With the awareness of health concerns for livestock (disease transfer or cross contamination) the management of Am Agra Inc. discourages this practice. You will be provided names of associated feedlots using the "Animal Ambulance" to contact.

TOP

5. Is there a "standard" set for feedbunks and hospital loadouts that work best for this unit?

The industry standard for feedbunk neck rails is 42 inches and loadout area height is 44 to 48 inches. The "Animal Ambulance" meets these measurements and has the flexibility to adjust six (6) inches plus or minus. Some old feedyards and background yards will need special modifications. That can be accomplished with the Animal Ambulance.

TOP

6. What if I don't have a loadout chute in the near vicinity of my HOSPITAL?

The "Grandin Livestock Services" has some plans for this sole purpose and current associated feedyards have implemented some great ideas and effective systems. We also can put you in contact with some Feedlot Construction companies that have constructed these systems.

TOP

7. Is there a lot of MAINTENANCE?

Minimal maintenance needed. No grease zirks. No grease gun needed. All wear points and bearings are made of Ultra High Molecular Weight Plastic (UHMW). Permanently impregnated with oil for superior lubrication, long life, and smooth performance.

TOP

8. Is there a "Warranty"?

90 (Ninety) days on hydraulics and all fabrication/ fabricated parts and workmanship.

TOP

9. Where do I get "service"?

You will find strategic located service centers in the high concentration feeding areas. Contact us for names and telephone numbers

11. How do I order one?

Call the Am Agra Inc. office and reserve a "build date".

TOP

12. What if my consultant vet or nutritionist is NOT familiar with the "Animal Ambulance"?

Am Agra Inc. will recommend a consultant that is familiar with the product.

13. How does the "Animal Ambulance" take cattle TO the hospital?

The most efficient method is for a feedlot to have "gathering points".

TOP


14. Why are "gathering points" necessary?

Currently the sick animal "pulls" can NOT be handled directly from a feedlot pen into the "Animal Ambulance".

TOP

15. Why TODAY do we need the "Animal Ambulance"?

With expansions came an INCREASE in the distance from pens to the hospital. Additional stressors of walking long distances, sorting, plus the possibility of inclement weather causes fatique, thus reducing the cattle's ability to recover quickly. "Gathering Points" allow cattle to be transported by the "Animal Ambulance" reducing undue physical stress.

TOP

16. How is the "Animal Ambulance" benefiting TODAYS feedlots recovery pens?

Due to less physical stressors the cattle have more positive response to the multi dose therapeutic treatment therefore they can return to their "home pens" sooner. No waiting for perfect weather conditions!! The "Animal Ambulance" can deliver when the cattle alleys are dry & dusty or damp & deep and it's hot or cold!

TOP

 

17. How does the "Animal Ambulance" effect the single dose sustain release drug therapy programs?

The "Animal Ambulance" enhances the effectiveness of various types of long lasting therapeutic treatments by exchanging transport energy (walking or running) for recovering health energies. This not only allows the animal to go home and "rest" but to "rest" on the way home!

TOP

18. Why should a feedyard invest in an "Animal Ambulance"?

Fluctuations in today's cattle market make one prioritize EFFICIENCY.... Easily $80.00 can be invested into each cattle's recovery cost. Using the "Animal Ambulance" frees up your quality people to utilize for them diagnostic and treatment. The "Animal Ambulance" requires ONE operator versus the typically 3 or 4 people or even more that are needed to trail and sort cattle to and from the hospital. The "Animal Ambulance" increases the feedyards EFFICIENCY of man hours to complete a job. ONE operator can transport up to 20 cattle in one trip!

TOP

19. Is the "Animal Ambulance" dependable?

The "Animal Ambulance" will be at work Sunday morning following the Saturday night dance!

TOP

20. Describe the controls on the "Animal Ambulance"?

There are TWO panels containing electrical toggle switches. One located at the left rear entry of the unit and the other at the Driver's side front.

The REAR control panel has toggle switches that aide the one operator in loading livestock into the unit. Switches operate all 4 gates plus the rear sliding gate.

The FRONT control panel has toggle switches that aide the one operator in loading or unloading livestock in the unit. The toggle switches on the panel regulate the partitions plus the discharge that extends over the feedbunk. In addition, the console has the controls for the "Sonic Start" located in each compartment.

TOP

21. What is a "Sonic Start"?

A unique invention that aides in the gentle movement of livestock. It's innovative design allows for NO hot shots to be needed to force livestock to exit the unit. The Sonic Start is "Livestock Friendly".
