Cattle Drafting Equipment

       Cattle drafting is becoming more frequently required due to changes such as tighter feeder weights, the continuing dry, cell grazing, early weaning and overall improved management practices.

NSS has developed a series of drafters that allow 1 person drafting and the very quick Glenrock Overhead Drafter that requires more than 1 person.
