Optional Neck Extender
The neck extender works seamlessly with the automatic head gate. This design minimizes livestock injury while maximizing handler safety and efficiency. Neck extenders are designed to reduce head movement and provide access to the neck for injections. But not all neck extenders are created equal. Many designs include a fixed neck extender bar that sits out from the automatic head gate. This design will often result in the neck bar closing on the animal’s head or jaw. Jaw pain may result in slower growth as the animal consumes less feed. The trauma of this experience may also result in the animal balking or refusing to enter the squeeze chute in the future. To avoid these problems our neck extender is designed to work in conjunction with our automatic head gate.
