Arrowquip appoints Wise Agriculture as Scotland’s cattle handling equipment distributor

  • Wise Agriculture has been appointed Scotland dealership rights for Arrowquip’s cattle handling equipment portfolio

The extensive product offering consists of the renowned Q-Catch manual squeeze crush and Q-Power hydraulic squeeze crush ranges, along with a suite of fixed and mobile cattle handling products that include race sections, sweep pens and portable cattle handling systems.

Located in Winnipeg, Canada, Arrowquip is a global leader in cattle handling equipment, combining engineering with animal behaviour to create products to improve safety, efficiency and quality.

“Arrowquip’s innovations are never ending as we work to create solutions for farmers to improve both the day-to-day and long-term outlooks of their businesses,” says Russell Evans, UK regional manager for Arrowquip. “Wise Agriculture shares our mission in not only providing UK farmers with the tools they need to improve the safety and efficiency of cattle handling but also delivering gold-standard customer service. This is essential as warranties on some of our crushes reach 15 years, with specific working components reaching a lifetime.”

Based near Richmond, North Yorkshire, Wise Agriculture was founded in 2018 by livestock farmers Edward and Laura Wise. The company offers nationwide services to beef, dairy and sheep producers in premium livestock handling, data recording and animal welfare solutions.

“Wise Agriculture was founded on the principles of efficiency, innovation, practicality and quality in both the way we work and the products we supply. Arrowquip has been an important partner in this mission since the beginning,” says Edward Wise, managing director for Wise Agriculture. “Our new appointment will allow us to further improve Arrowquip customer experience for Scottish farmers. We already have a strong customer base of Scottish farmers and look forward to increasing our service to the country.”

Since its establishment, Wise Agriculture has taken on UK distribution rights for Landquip NZ’s Porta-Yards sheep handling equipment, and also supplies Tru-Test weighing and EID products and AgriCow Rotating Cow brushes.
