Hide and Pelt Removal

Beef Hide Pullers and Hock Restraints

Milmeq beef hide pullers are compatible with head-on as well as head-off processing and can incorporate electronic back stiffeners to eliminate the problem of broken backs and product degradation during the hide removal process.

Milmeq hock restraint systems can also be used in conjunction with the hide removal process. Our hock restrainers are designed to securely hold the animal and ensure safety for the operator.

Having a well-designed hock restrainer in place allows for greater force to be applied on the hide while minimising the risk of the carcass falling from the rail. Hock restrainers can be designed suited to varying levels of automation, depending on processing requirements.

Hide and Pelt Removal

Sheep and Small Stock Pelt Removal

Milmeq is a world leader in the development of fully automated pelt removal equipment for small stock.

An important part of the hide and pelt removal process surrounds the broadest part of a carcass, the shoulders. This is where the most strain and tearing can occur which can reduce the yield and product quality.

We have focused our development and design attention towards this part of the process and as a result have a range of shoulder puller systems to suit different process requirements.

One of our key developments in this area is the Variable Independent Path (VIP) shoulder puller system, which assesses the unique shape of each carcass before applying an automatic pulling path. The VIP shoulder puller is the only fully automated shoulder puller of its kind.

Our range of sheep and small stock pelt pullers include:

Fully-automatic:

  • VIP shoulder puller
  • Final puller

Semi-automatic:

  • Mk II shoulder puller
  • Four prong puller
  • Calf hide puller
