Though Pastured Poultry at it's heart is a more hands on approach to farming, it doesn't mean we shouldn't use efficiencies where we can, especially when those efficiencies save our bodies from injury and unnecessary labor. The "Crate Skate" is one such efficiency we have created on our farm to help with the physical labor of using poultry crates during processing or relocation of birds. It's important to remember that the "humane" treatment of animals is extremely important, but it is equally important to realize the root word of "humane" is human, i.e. "the farmer". We can't properly care for our animals if we can't perform those tasks without injury.
