The hour of birth

Albert Kerbl, then a student at an agricultural school, recognised the enormous potential of HK Rheintechnik calf pullers as early as 1967 and secured the resale rights. This tool was to become the foundation for unprecedented business success.

Kerbl returned to its roots in 2019 and took over the production of the previously exclusively sold products, the associated patents and ‘Rheintechnik’ and ‘HK’ trademarks.

More than 1.5 million calf pullers have been sold worldwide since Hermann Kaspar developed the HK Rheintechnik calf pullers more than 50 years ago. …

Cows and heifers usually give birth without help. But if there are complications occur during the second stage, mechanical calf pullers are a life saving aid. The use of a suitable calf puller is especially important, alongside care and expertise. Otherwise, serious injury or stillbirths could result. An HK Rheintechnik calf puller is the right tool to choose. More than 1.5 million calf puller have been sold since Hermann Kaspar developed the HK Rheintechnik calf puller more than 50 years ago. HK Rheintechnik calf pullers are known for their reliability.

HK Pregnancy Tester
HK Pregnancy Tester

The device generates ultrasonic waves that are sent out from the transducer and reflected when they meet separating layers (e.g. tissue fluid). In pregnancy, the amount of amniotic fluid in the uterus increases so dramatically that it slowly descends into the abdominal cavity, meaning the ultrasonic waves can pick it up. The device converts the reflected ultrasonic waves into a continuous noise, indicating pregnancy. An intermittent whistle noise denotes a lack of separating layer – the animal is not pregnant.

HK Calf Resuscitator
HK Calf Resuscitator

The first few minutes are decisive! The calf comes hind legs first or stays in the birth canal for too long. Breathing does not start, birth mucus closes the airways. Now is the time to act quickly! The calf is often pulled up by its hind legs or hung over the closest fence to enable the mucus to flow out of the airways. But the opposite actually happens: the calf has even more trouble breathing as its internal organs press against its lungs and bronchi. Using a resuscitator, colloquially known as a ‘calf saver’, is much easier on the farmer’s back and also far more effective. Purchasing a resuscitator pays for itself after saving just one calf.

The hour of birth

Albert Kerbl, then a student at an agricultural school, recognised the enormous potential of HK Rheintechnik calf pullers as early as 1967 and secured the resale rights. This tool was to become the foundation for unprecedented business success.

Kerbl returned to its roots in 2019 and took over the production of the previously exclusively sold products, the associated patents and ‘Rheintechnik’ and ‘HK’ trademarks.

More than 1.5 million calf pullers have been sold worldwide since Hermann Kaspar developed the HK Rheintechnik calf pullers more than 50 years ago. The Rheintechnik hallmark together with the HK bull has become a byword for sophisticated technology and impeccably processed, high-quality materials. Registered patents protect Rheintechnik’s innovative edge. Kerbl will carry on making all Rheintechnik products to the same high standard even after the takeover, so that livestock owners, breeders and vets can still enjoy innovative, highquality products made in Germany.

The air-one ultrasound inhaler product line and hippomed brand will remain in the hands of Rheintechnik Weiland & Kaspar GmbH & Co. KG.

You can find further information in the FAQs or at www.rheintechnik-electronic.de.

 

“Products from Rheintechnik are the cornerstone of our success. Our father and grandfather Isidor Kerbl saved the lives of many calves with the HK calf puller, which was the first product to be sold by Albert Kerbl GmbH. We are therefore very proud that our company can now continue writing this success story.”

– Albert and Ulli Kerbl, CEOs of Albert Kerbl GmbH

The Rheintechnik and Kerbl companies share a joint history going back more than 30 years. During this time, I have got to know and appreciate Albert Kerbl and more lately his son, Ulli, personally. Therefore, given the lack of a successor, it wasn’t a difficult decision to hand these divisions of the company to Albert Kerbl GmbH. I am convinced that Albert and Ulli Kerbl will successfully continue the Rheintechnik company philosophy, and I wish them good fortune always.”

– Rainer Andretzki, CEO of Rheintechnik Weiland & Kaspar GmbH & Co. KG
