Auto Head Gate 110

This heavy duty self-catch headgate, which is standard equipment in our Calving/Trimming chute and Calving Enclosure, can also be bolted to a set of posts.

The economical calving headgate has many of the same features as our heavy duty Automatic PA cattle squeeze headgate.  Unlike the PA cattle squeeze head gate this head gate does not include sheet metal side guards or a head-tie-down chain. Both the headgate handle and the width adjustment drop pins are simplified.

Like the PA cattle squeeze head gate the calving head gate will open fully both in and out of the chute. This eliminates the threat of hip lock found with other head gates.

Front Calving Enclosure Frame

This is valuable for both vets and calves. The frame comes with a man gate on either side of the head gate. Each man gate comes with slam latch plungers latches.

66" high side panels with stability extension

the heavy duty side panels for the calving enclosure are 12′ long and 66″ high. The headgate frame for the calving enclosure is attached to the panel at the 10′ mark with 2′ of panel extending beyond the headgate. These two extra feet provide stability to the enclosure so that it will not tip forward when the cow enters the headgate. The six rails on the panel are spaced closer at the bottom to keep young calves contained.

The back end of both panels come with a sleeve which allows the top split panels to pin securely to the bottom split panels. The bottom left panel includes a chain which can be used to span behind the cow and drop into the chain latch on the bottom right panel.

Rear frame & Gate - Item 1160

Calving Enclosure Parts

Rear frame and gate for calving chute

The frame on the rear gate is 7′ high so it will fit in most barns. In fact this frame and gate are often used by ranchers where standard 8′ frame and gates won’t fit. The gate height on this frame & gate is 66″ high, the same height as the side panels. The six rails on the gate are spaced closer at the bottom to keep young calves contained. The frame is reinforced with gussets to keep the plunger latch and striker plate aligned. The connectors used on the panels and the frame and gate are mounted at our standard height so they will tie seemlessly in with any panels in our product line.
