For generations the Nugent family has been steeped in agricultural traditions. Using his engineering expertise to facilitate his requirements on the farm, Sean Nugent began the manufacture of Cattle Crushes to handle and restrain the animal and this is where the Nugent story began over 30 years ago.
Nugent has developed the range to suit demanding Irish breeds, offering heavy duty crushes to suit heavier handling and constantly developing the range to specialise in the design and manufacture of some of the finest crushes on the market today. New methods of production have translated to product innovations and designs, bringing Nugent to the cutting edge of agricultural equipment design, with an extensive and flexible range of cattle handling equipment.
As leaders in the Irish market, Nugent has invested heavily in research and development and has brought to market a new generation of versatile, robust, heavy duty crushes providing excellent access for general handling.
Nugent Cattle Crushes are designed to suit the demands of the modern day farmer, whilst safeguarding the welfare and safety of both the animal and handler.
