- A revolutionizing machine for mink grading.
Acknowledged by professional graders from auction houses all around the world.
Designed for effective weighing and quality grading of mink.
The original Thyrrestrup grading cart is developed and tested at our own test centre.
If you weigh the mink in connection with the grading, you avoid stressing the animal before skinning season.
The Grading Cart can be used by a single person who catches, weighs and grades the minks. There can be several people helping with the catching and a qualified person grading the mink. It is ideal with up to 5 persons doing the catching.
In addition to grading, the Grading Cart can also be used for:
Use the weight funnel for testicular tests and avoid scratches and bites to your fingers.
Blood samples of males
The funnel is moved under the light, where the height of the work can also be adjusted.
The grading cart occupies only 40 cm in width on the feeding aisle. This means there is room for several people working with the machine and enough free space on the feeding aisle for a Thyrrestrup pipe trolley to pass by. The wheel distance can be extended to 73 cm if needed.

- “The only thing I regret is not ordering the grading cart earlier” - Alex Vestby.
Before getting the grading cart, Alex Vestby used traps when grading, but as the minks increased in size, the old method with traps was getting even more difficult and slow to work with. “Another disadvantage...” - said Alex - “... is the handling of the animals. The traps drained your arms for energy and you also spend a lot of time. Furthermore you could not see the fur properly”. All these problems have been solved with the Grading Cart.
Facts about Alex’s farm:
Even though he grades by himself, the minks are not in the Grading Cart longer than necessary because the animals are put back in their cage or put down right away. This work process ensures a minimal amount of stress for the animals.
“It is a pleasure to grade the minks with the Grading Cart because it doesn't hurt your arms anymore” - Alex.
