Unistock Cattle Headgate
The Unistock Cattle Headgate was designed to meet the needs of farmers requiring a headgate that can be operated by one person working alone whilst also keeping stockman and animal safe. It can be supplied fitted to any of the Unistock Cattle Crate MK1, Unistock Cattle Crate MK2 or the Unistock Mobile Cattle Crate or supplied on its own for use in a race system. The unique safety latch incorporates auto catch and auto re-set facilities enabling the stockman to walk away from the headgate after releasing the animal, confident that the gate will re-lock and hold the next one in line. This is of significant benefit to one person working alone with cattle in a race or auction marts needing to pass high numbers of cattle through a headgate in the shortest possible time. The method of neck bar adjustment means that the head yoke can cater from calves to cows without the need for tools or add-on accessories.
- Auto catch and auto re-set facility enabling quick and efficient movement of cattle through crate or race section.
- Special arrangement enables manual operation if required in the case of horned cattle or bull with neck wider than head.
