Efficient livestock handling through better design
Hi-Hog’s livestock equipment delivers greater efficiency through better design. Like the S-Alley the U-Alley was developed by Hi-Hog to take advantage of the instinctive herding behaviour of cattle to create a cattle working alley that flows faster and with less effort. Unlike the S-Alley the U-Alley does not travel in a straight line. This compact system is most often used where physical space is limited. For best operation we recommend the U-Alley is set on a level surface.
Each U-Alley section covers a portion of a curve with an inside diameter of 20 feet. The inside width of the alley can be adjusts from 18” to 32”. Hi-Hog offers two U-Alley sections. The smaller alley section covers 45º and has an inside length of 9’. The longer alley section covers 60º and has an inside length of 12’.
Cattle handling equipment designed for easy operation
The 9 foot and the 12 foot U-Alley lengths can be combined to create a wide range of U-Alleys configurations. Each configuration offers a different length and angle. This can be critical if you need your cattle squeeze chute to be in a particular location.
The U shaped cattle handling alley can be built with both sides 66″ high, or with one side of the alley at 66″ and the inside of the alley at 60″. The optional walkway will work with both heights of alley. These walks hang on the inside of the curve.
Better cattle handling systems through better design
A wide range of alley spreaders can be used in the creation of your U-Alley. The 32” fixed-width alley spreaders will allow you to build a non-adjustable U-Alley. In most cased however the adjustable 18” to 32” alley spreaders are used. The adjustable U-Alley spreaders are available with or without rolling doors. Additionally, Hi-Hog also offers a number of adjustable transition spreaders which will allow the U-Alley and the S-Alley to be combined.
