Sheep Handling Systems
The sheep enter through a walk through guillotine gate operated by a cord - a self-catching hook keeps the gate in the raised position until a further pull on the cord releases it. The gate will also swing open to allow the operator to enter the Race. The Race is 14' long and is adjustable in width from 1' 6' to 4'. This allows the sheep to be worked either from outside or inside the Race. When in the narrow position the Race sides can be sloped inwards to fit a narrow footbath or to make the sheep approach the Shedding Gate in single file.
