Calving season 2020 is upon.
Well laid out and safe calving facilities are key to easing the pressure during calving season. This is one of the most dangerous times of the year in terms of handling animals on the farm. A calving gate can save time and energy along with a safer working environment.
We have two options of calving gates, our standard 1200 high gate and the 1400 high back grant spec calving gate. The difference being the 1200 high gate is a straight pipe across the bottom allowing it to clear the straw bedding. The 1400 high back goes to the ground in the head locking space as per-grant regulations, this can make the gate harder to open as it will get cot in the bedding. Both gates come with a Spring-loaded neck pipe for width adjustment or quick release. We general fit the calving gate as a dividing gate between two pens as it can be operated from both sides. Our standard sizes are 10ft and 12ft in both, custom lengths we can also make to order.

We also manufacture a fitted calving stall if you would prefer a fitted option. It can come with weld-on hanged or wraparound hangers. It also comes with most of the same features as our calving gates with Spring-loaded neck pipe for width adjustment or quick release.
The cubicle dividing gate is ideal at the start of calving time when housing space is at a premium. It allows for easy separation. The dividing gate is mounted on the cubicles by two brackets that side over the cubicle. This gate is a two-bar fence that separates cows while housed. It is easily moved to any part of the cubicle shed to separate cows that are about to calve from the rest of herd.
