Introducing the Agritubel Fiabilis Self-Locking Yoke, with an innovative three-position head lock.
The triangular design of the static part of the head lock creates two passage areas for the cow's head. Depending on its position and locking,the pendulum determines the three possible head lock positions:
“V” entry position
This is the natural position at which the pendulum returns to equilibrium. It invites the cows to feed by passing their head through the top.
“I” closed position
Locked is the position that blocks the animal at the feed table. It lets the animal move the pendulum aside by the top or bottom.
Self-service position and “A” clearance
The pendulum moves away to the side and opens wide at the bottom to facilitate the animal’s release.
The head lock that does more
The 3rd position has two new benefits compared to a conventional head lock:
Freedom to feed
Cows can feed freely in front, to the right and to the left, without being stressed by restraint. The farmer gets a better ration intake, which is the base for zootechnical performance.
Cows that fall cannot have their head jammed like in a funnel.
The "A" position facilitates the animal’s exit through the bottom part.
Central control with return preventer safety feature
100% blocking, with mechanical parts inaccessible to the animals, for the farmer's peace of mind. Once the animals are blocked at the trough, the farmer has complete freedom to enter the cowshed safely, to put down straw, clean, inspect or care for the cows.
Individual cow blocking
The locking design lets farmers easily unlock the panel collectively or individually for each animal.
Fiabilis has all the most modern technical advantages as standard: noise-reducing polymer shock absorbers, silent sliding shaft locking systems and a ringed joint reinforced using flow-drilling (a patented AGRITUBEL process).

Please note that while these yokes are sold as 1000mm, 1600mm, etc, this is the space they are designed to fit, not the actual length of the yoke - space is left for the end brackets. The actual length of the yoke is detailed below:
