Anti Backing Bar

    Thinking of buying an anti backing bar for the crush to hopefully make life a little easier. Seem to be plenty of them around, has anyone bought one recently or recommend a particular one?

    I like the O Donovan’s one as the bar can’t get caught in the side of the animal with the wheel. Don’t have one but must order it before AI. VAT can be reclaimed also afaik as part of safety scheme

    Bought an anti-backing bar, it has got little use. An internal gate in the crush that swings 180° and locks into the wall is way better. Great for releasing an animal through the headlock and preventing the others following.
