Product benefits

Ergonomic work posture

The 1000-1 hoof trimming chute enables the hoof trimmer to work in an ergonomic position while hoof trimming.

Animal welfare

Four leg winches allow all four legs to be fixated simultaneously. Hoof plates allow a careful working position for each hoof.

High quality standards

KVK products go through a constant test and optimisation process. All hydraulic functions are overload protected.

Minimum noise

The 1000-1 is reduced to a minimum noise level (max. 64 dB during normal work) to ensure less noise for the animal and hoof trimmer while hoof trimming.

Product characteristics

The hoof trimming chute model 1000-1 bull chute is the ideal solution where high demands are placed on a fast and efficient hoof trimming. Model 1000-1 is one of KVK’s top models, which in addition to the advantages of the 650-SP models also includes that all functions are fully hydraulic. This model is not only used by professional hoof trimmers, but is also increasingly used by farmers and veterinarians.

Based on 50 years of experience, the hoof trimming chute has been developed to meet the requirements of the present and the future, and special consideration has been given to operational reliability and solid construction. Model 1000-1 bull chute is designed for cattle between 500 to 2000 kg and developed especially for larger cattle, primarily bulls. Bull chute model 1000-1 is like our other models developed to protect the animals during hoof trimming. All hydraulic functions are damped in the hydraulic pressure so that the animal does not suffer any inconvenience.
Special attention has been paid to ergonomic work settings, as the chute can be adjusted to individual working heights. Efficient work lights are installed at all operating sites.

The 1000-1 hoof trimming bull chute meets the strict requirements of the Machinery Directive 98/37 / EEC. To support this, all hydraulic functions are pressure-adjusted so that these minimize the risk of damaging the cattle during hoof trimming.

The 1000-1 hoof trimming bull chute comes with hydraulic functions for the:

  • Front winch
  • Front gate
  • Back gate
  • Double belly bands
  • Lifting and lowering the whole chute
  • Four winches; one for each leg
  • Control of the claw fixation plates
    • in / out
    • left / right

Individual configuration
The surface of the 1000-1 is powder-coated as standard which enables a very easy cleaning after hoof trimming. As an alternative, this chute can also be supplied as a galvanised version. In addition to this option, the customer can choose from various extras such as cup holders, LED work lamps, different extra functions and more. KVK is always open to customised ideas and implements them (if possible) upon customer request.

Functionality & animal welfare
The effective hoof support plates as well as the lifting of the box supports the hoof trimmer in performing a work that minimizes the risk of injury to the cow, as this enables the cow’s anatomical natural leg position not to be broken and thereby creates an overstretch. The individual hoof support plates ensure a proper and safe fixation of the hoof and allow the hoof trimmer to see the hoof from above and thus have an optimal view throughout the hoof trimming process.

Animal-friendly features
The adjustment of the hydraulic functions ensure that the hoof trimming is carried out as gently and as stress-reduced as possible for the cow.

High level of reliability
Above all, the hoof trimming chute model 1000-1 bull chute is constructed and designed with a focus on reliability and a solid construction. Particular emphasis is placed on a good and ergonomic working position for the hoof trimmer, as the box can be adjusted to individual working heights. LED work lights are located at the work areas to ensure proper visibility throughout the work process.

A sustainable solution
The 1000-1 hoof trimming bull chute is the ideal solution to today’s high demands on hoof care, as it enables a fast, efficient and gentle hoof trimming and work process for the professional hoof trimmer, farmer and veterinarian.

Aaron was introduced to the dairy industry in 2000 after serving 4 years in the United States Navy when he took a job on a small dairy farm. It was on this farm that he found his passion for working with cows. Fascinated with many aspects of the farm, he took a particular interest in hoof trimming and decided to start his hoof trimming business in 2004. After completing a course on the Dutch Method Aaron continued to study the anatomy and bone structure of the bovine hoof to refine his hoof trimming style, called “The Balance Method”. In 2014 Aaron founded Midwestern Hoof Trimming School and has since been requested to consult for large dairy farms worldwide. Aaron has trained hundreds of hoof trimmers with various skill sets, from beginners to veteran professionals, on The Balance Method. He has been selected to speak at conferences and universities globally and has hosted workshops in 7 different counties. Aaron continues to exercise his passion as an active hoof trimmer and services several local top dairy farms in Wisconsin.
Aaron is a husband, a father of 6, and a grandfather. He enjoys spending time with his family and participating in outdoor activities such as hunting, camping, and fishing. His other passions include woodworking and primitive skills.

Jessie studied Veterinary Medicine at Utrecht University from 2017 - 2021, with a focus on farm animals and public health. She performed her Masters program in Melbourne, Australia, where she did a 3 months research internship investigating the prevalence of Digital Dermatitis among cattle in Victoria, Australia. This work has been published in The Australian Veterinary Journal (10.1111/avj.12859). In 2018 she performed a research internship at Utrecht University to investigate different treatment approaches for digital dermatitis. This study is currently under review for publication. Next to claw health, she independently investigated the prevalence of udder cleft dermatitis and effect of a treatment with a copper- and zinc chelates spray. The results of study will be presented at the KVK Symposium.

Currently Jessie is working as a ruminant veterinarian in the South of the Netherlands. Besides cows, she treats sheep, goats and alpaca's.
