Faster and wider-reaching agricultural mowers capable of covering areas of up to 20 ha/hour are responsible for killing increasing numbers of huntable and non-huntable wild animals such as mice, toads, hedgehogs, lapwing chicks, partridges, pheasants, hares, rabbits and fawns. Wild animal losses also occur as a result of other, less obvious activities such as hay and straw baling and liquid fertiliser spreading.
If animal remains end up the animal feed at the time of harvesting, it is likely that those animals receiving the feed will contract botulism. This device will help to prevent the often unnoticeable development of the disease in dairy herds.
The device is attached to agricultural machinery and scares wild animals away from the actual danger. The sound is only generated in one direction, which is advantageous for the driver sitting in the cab as he or she will hardly notice it.
In order to protect wild animals the device must be mounted so that the sound is projected towards the area that is yet tob e cut. In the case of large working areas two to three devices should be fitted at intervals. Carry bag with Velcro.
