Next generation, automated sorting/drafting for all milking systems.
Saber Draft reduces the hassle sorting/drafting with a highly reliable automated two-way or three-way sorting gate that identifies and guides animals that need to be sorted.
Your handy Saber Draft software is portable and can be used to schedule drafts – not only when you’re in the pit but when you’re in the yard as well, and it still has the same robust, reliable gate you know.
Integrating with Saber Heat, Saber SCC, Saber Milk and Saber ID, the portable software can be controlled via an app on your smart device (mobile or tablet).
“I reduced a labour unit during breeding since the introduction of the Saber Draft system.”

“Now we have complete confidence; if we select 20 cows for drafting, we’d be certain there would be 20 cows in the collecting yard. It has given us great peace of mind and there’s less stress on the animal and the man.”
How it works
- An electronic reader and antenna identifies an animal as she walks into the sort gate
- The system then checks to see if the identified animal is to be sorted
- If the animal is to be sorted, the gate will guide her in the desired direction by moving both the left and right side of the gate and then return to its normal position before the next animal comes through
