Munks Livestock Sling
Munks Livestock Sling is a manufacturing company that started in 1983 with its famous patented livestock sling designed by Don and Leonard Munks of Anacortes, WA. Since that time the company has grown and now offers a wider range of products that aid customers in caring for their animals.
Our original livestock sling was a product created out of necessity. Unhappy with what the market offered at the time, Don and Leonard decided to come up with something more effective to assist livestock in getting up from a downed position. Drawbacks of other products that aided in the same task included bruising, uneven distribution of weight, as well as a question of stability when the animal struggled after only a short period of time. It wasn't long until the Munks Livestock Sling was born. This new sling was the first of its kind, made from durable nylon material, which results in fewer body sores, it has many advantages over other options including adjustability to prevent animals from being in danger of falling out of the device.
