Safer Corrals.

I'd worked in hundreds of different corrals (cattle yards) in New Zealand disease testing cattle, and a farm magazine was offering $10 for a good farm idea. So I draw up 11 different ideas I had for gates, latches and chutes, and sent them in. I thought they mIght be able to use a couple of them.

Well not only did they use all the ideas, but they made it their front page article. And paid me $150.00 for it!  I started taking cattle corral designing a little more seriously.

A couple of years later my “One-Man” corrals began featuring in many magazines, to date 55 articles in magazines in New Zealand, Australia,  South Africa, the U.S. and Canada.  Cattlemen were excited that - what used to take 2 or 3 people to do in a corral - they could now do by themselves.

I have since added over 100 new ideas to those original 11, and put them into the packages below - along with 18 of the best One-Man and 2-Man layouts (scale plans). Cost-saving and safety are the major focus of my designs - along with with low-labor cattle handling.

Safer Cattle Handling

In the hundreds of corrals I've worked in I've seen more accidents in the crowding pen than anywhere else.  A raised central walkway like this eliminates the need to get into the pen - making it much safer.  It's makes for a clean comfortable area to work in. And cattle naturally circle around you into the chute.

 There are 5 different 'centre platform' designs including:

*  One where the gate moves only anti-clockwise - so theres no need to return the gate. This allows you to fill the pen behind the gate - saving time.

*  A centre platform pen with two chutes - swing the gate anti-clockwise to fill the first chute, and clockwise to fill the second chute. This system greatly speeds up cattle handling.
