PA Squeeze Chute with Neck Extender

Minimize livestock injury & maximize handler safety and efficiency

This model pairs the outstanding Hi-Hog parallel axis cattle squeeze chute with a fully integrated neck extender. The neck extender works seamlessly with the automatic head gate.

This design minimizes livestock injury while maximizing handler safety and efficiency. Neck extenders should reduce head movement and provide safe access to the neck for injections. But not all neck extenders are created equal. Many designs include a fixed neck extender bar that sits out from the automatic head gate.  This design will often result in the neck bar closing on the animal’s head or jaw. Jaw pain may result in slower growth as the animal consumes less feed. The trauma of this experience may also result in the animal balking or refusing to enter the squeeze chute in the future.

To avoid these problems Hi-Hog’s neck extender is designed to extend outward as the headgate moves forward. This design greatly reduces the possibility of animal injury. Funding may be available in some Provinces

PA Squeeze Chute with Neck Extender

How does the neck extender work?

Because our head gate is designed to be driven by the animal and not a handler the opportunity for animal injury or stress is greatly reduced.

When the automatic cattle head gate is set to catch the animal the neck extender bar is beside the head gate bar. The animals head passes both these bars before their shoulders make contact with the head gate. As the animal moves forward the shoulders swing the head gate forward and locks.

Because our neck extender is linked directly to the automatic head gate it’s position is determined by the position of the head gate. As the head gate moves forward the neck extender bars move forward as well. When the head gate locks the gap between the head gate and the neck extender has extended to offer 11” of work space for safe injections.
