This standalone timer releases a spring or tape gate allowing stock to move to the dairy, the feedpad or herd home, or to the next grazing block. Up to four releases per day can be stored, the delay can be as long as two weeks.It’s solar powered and fully waterproof. Being portable and supplied with a strap, you only need one timer per herd or mob. In some situations with milking cows, each timer can save over 450 hours of work per year, and farmers report substantial reductions in lameness. When used with drystock, it reduces their stress on being closed in, as they recognise the timer will let them go at some stage. This saves on fencing costs and pugging. A 3G SMS feature can be added to the timer, standard texts from one or several smartphones control the timer as though you were right beside it.
