TravAlong’s new Silent Sire, Portable A.I. Barn
By Kelsie Gleason

  TravAlong of Waterville, KS, would like to introduce our new Silent Sire, Portable A.I. Barn. This barn, designed for the safety of the operator and animal, focuses on comfort and function with high quality standard features. The all-steel constructed, 2 stall barn, is 18 foot in length and has a stall height of 91 inches. All gates are caulked to reduce noise. The barn sits on a Rock Shaft axle with a 7,000 pound spindle. This allows for smoother and safer movement when raising and lowering the barn. The Silent Sire includes a 12 volt hydraulic system with a solar charger. The stalls are separated by a curtain and each stall has a fully adjustable drop down bar in the rear. Included in the technician’s area is a 12 or 110 volt office light and plug, holders for gloves, paper towels, and waste bags, as well as semen warmer platforms. The travaluscent roof allows more lighting for the technician. The Silent Sire is equipped with view windows in the rear, which allow the technician to see the i.d. of each animal. If you want less stress during breeding and better results during calving, you need a Silent Sire.
