For catching sheep and/or goats by the neck or leg.
It’s both a leg and a neck crook, obviously—but the most important advantage is the self-locking lever on the leg portion that ensures that an animal’s leg, once caught, remains caught until released by human hands.
Triangle point at end of leg shaft allows crook to be used as walking stick over treacherous ground.

This thing is absolutely amazing. I can’t say enough about it. It is so light and strong! Having come from a traditional wooden neck crook the Kiwi Crook is absolutely way easier and less exhausting to use.
With the next crook up there is a point on the bottom of the foot crook so that it can double as a walking stick. I ranch over hilly terrain and am on my feet constantly. This device is rigid enough to be used as a walking stick.
The first thing I grab when I enter the animal area is this Kiwi Crook!

EXCELLENT! Works great with both lambs and grown sheep. Saves a lot of time and energy in catching sheep.

I love these crooks. I have tried many different types from different places and Premier alike and I prefer these hands down. The two functions make it invaluable and multi-functional, and having something at each end keeps the animal from pulling it out of your hands. The crook part also curves back in, keeping the animal from too easily slipping back out once caught.
The only reason it’s not the perfect crook worth 5 stars is that the fiberglass does breakdown and start to splinter over time, especially out in the sun — in the fields during summer. Also the neck hook is a tad small for my thicker necked ewes and my rams.

I have boer goats. I am 64. When I need to catch kid goats, I use the hook. It saves on my back. I would recommend this product to anyone who has goats or sheep.
