3rd Generation Cattle Head Holder

3rd Generation Q-Catch Cattle Head Holder

The 3rd Generation Q-Catch® Cattle Head Holder takes cattle control to a new level, with enhanced control and durability for optimal performance. Featuring an upgraded design with thicker and heavier components, the 3rd Gen Head Holder ensures you can perform treatments on your cattle safely and easily, no matter their size or temperament. The Head Holder is made up of two pieces - a bottom bar with a head scoop and top bar to secure the head and prevent thrashing. The two pieces move in a synchronized, scissor-style motion to clamp around the animal's head securely and provide the handler with up-close access to the animal's head without placing unnecessary stress on the animal.
