Fixed Cattle Handling Systems

  • Cattle easily become distracted when moving through confined spaces, therefore our race panels are fully clad to a height of 1560mm to reduce distractions and aid flow
  • The semi-circular forcing pen turns the cattle through 180 degrees which is driven by research suggesting cows have a tendency to return to the direction they came from
  • Narrow personnel gaps provide the handler with access to the holding pens or egress in emergencies
  • It is advised that the race exit points towards the cattle housing or field as cattle will move better when going in the direction of their housing environment
  • Fixed Cattle Handling System
  • FCHS with curved race

  • Crowding pen
