Title (EN) AUTOMATED WOOL HARVESTING
(FR) COLLECTE AUTOMATISÉE DE LAINE
Abstract:
(EN) Systems, apparatus, mechanisms and methods developed for automated harvesting of wool from cultivated livestock, such as sheep. A fully automated system for wool harvesting is disclosed, as well as a number of subsystems, apparatus and devices that may be employed in such a system or independently. According to one aspect of the invention an automated wool harvesting system comprises animal conveyance apparatus operative to sequentially convey animals to be processed from a containment structure to a transfer station. The transfer station includes apparatus for mechanically applying restraints to an individual animal and transferring the restrained animal to a harvesting circuit. The harvesting circuit includes at least one harvesting station having automated shearing apparatus operative to remove wool from the restrained animal.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des systèmes, un appareil, des mécanismes et des procédés développés pour la collecte automatisée d'une laine provenant d'animaux d'élevage, tels que des moutons. L'invention concerne également un système entièrement automatisé de collecte de laine, ainsi qu'un certain nombre de sous-systèmes, d'appareils et de dispositifs qui peuvent être utilisés dans un tel système ou indépendamment. Selon un aspect de l'invention, un système de collecte automatisée de laine comprend un appareil de transport d'animal servant à transporter de manière séquentielle des animaux à traiter depuis une structure de confinement vers une station de transfert. La station de transfert comprend un appareil permettant d'appliquer mécaniquement une contention à un animal individuel et de transférer l'animal sous contention vers un circuit de collecte. Le circuit de collecte comprend au moins une station de collecte dotée d'un appareil de tonte automatisée conçu pour retirer la laine de l'animal sous contention.
