One of our four calving gate designs. Comes as two individual gates – the locking yoke and the operating gate. The head locking yoke is installed adjacent to the wall/gate, this allows the cow to be secured.
This set comes at separate items, the locking yoke and the operating gate. The head locking yoke is installed adjacent to the wall/gate, and the operating gate hangs from the open side of the yoke. This means the animals will be secured in the yoke and can then be secured against the wall/gate using the operating gate and chain.
This locking yoke follows a similar design to the Jourdain headlock, this however, is better suited to calving and other procedures. If the cow were to fall the horizontal lower bar is close to the floor and also the yoke has a removable bar to ensure she is not harmed. When locking is not required the yoke can be used for feeding. The locking yoke should be mounted between two posts (not included as standard but available) or between a wall and a post.
This gate attaches to the side of the locking yoke not the post ensuring it is close for working at the cow. The operating gate has a number of gates within it to aid the farmer, top gate for doing operations and lower gate for accessing the udder of the cow for milking the cow or getting a calf to suckle. The double hanging height allows you to adjust the hang height of the gate to correspond to the animal size. The operating gate can come with an optional caesarean fold down table.
