Large and small
When these panels are coupled together in
pairs along the leadup system sheep are directed 90 degrees either left
or right. Two pairs together will result in a 180 degree change in
direction. These aids are ideal when feeding sheep in single file and
space is critical or obstacles have to be avoided, e.g. inside a shed or
attaching to existing yards.
NON BACK LEADUP RAMP
Essential for best performance for all handling
machines. Provides an automatic positive non-backing block for sheep
entering a confined working area. Unit is 3 metres long in 2 pieces for
portability, suitable for loading sheep onto a ute, or weighing scales.
Gates are closed by the weight of each sheep on the floor and re-open
when the sheep moves forward. Sheet metal V base and hinged panel
attachments at entrance. All galvanised sheet metal frame.
Include a clamp on tumble gate section, which can be
reversed for opening either way, this creates an excellent portable
sheep classing race. A swinging gate can also be fitted to form a short
drenching race or selected entry race.
The gates are swung within an RHS framework
ready for assembly with portable panels or they can be fixed into
permanent sheep yards, air operated for remote operation or manual with
The dual leadup system provides an
excellent approach to any handling system. With enough storage to
contain 20-30 sheep in single file one person and a dog can easily move
sheep forward for processing. The system consists of a pair of entry
gates in adjustable width frames, three 3.3 metre standard panels, adjustable with dual race frame, two funnel
gates with free swinging centre gate and an adjustable single race frame
where the sheep leave the system. A single leadup system will work
effectively as well but extra length is required to have sufficient
sheep ready. To deter sheep from backing, spring loaded hock bars can
be clamped on the panels and strategically spaced for maximum effect.
Sundry leadup components
Forcing pens usually consist of two 2.4
metre filled panels with a 2 metre filled gate-in-frame creating a
triangular force into a single or dual race.
