Robust hinged sections can be manufactured with drop end frames, drop channels and treated timber plank base.
Crest Feed Barrier: This new style feed barrier is the latest addition to our range of feed rails. The absence of top horizontal bar reduces restriction for the animal. The diagonals of this barrier are bowed forward to provide the animal with extra reach. The crest feed barrier increases head and neck comfort due to the unique design there is less friction to the neck.
