Reversible half circle crowding tub with item 250

The drawings above show the parts required to create three different sizes of cattle crowding tubs with the 7' sheeted panel. All of the above designs can be set up for clockwise or counter-clockwise operation.

The three-section tub will redirect the cattle approximately 150°
The two-section tub will redirect the cattle approximately 120°
The one-section tub will redirect the cattle approximately 60°


To maximize efficiency and minimize stress ensure your livestock can, from their view point in the tub, see clearly into the exit alley.

NOTE: do not overfill your tub with cattle as this will make it more difficult for your livestock to turn and face the exit.

NOTE: do not overcrowd your cattle in your tub as this will make it more difficult for your livestock to turn and face the exit.

Hi-Hog half circle cattle sweep with 250Designed for safety

The value of a safe, reliable and efficient crowding tub should not be overlooked. The crowding tub is critical to the overall efficiency of the handling system yet many crowding tubs fail to consider the challenges of the working tub environment. The crowding tub is often filled with anxious livestock and the ground is often slippery and uneven. This creates a dangerous environment both to your livestock and to you the handler.

Remove Foot traps

For this reason, Hi-Hog’s heavy duty tub spreaders run overhead rather than on the ground. Pipes or flat steel ground braces create foot traps for your livestock and tripping hazards for the handler. To eliminate foot traps Hi-Hog also extends the sheeted curved tub panels all the way to the ground.

Tall sides

For better control the tub panels are 66” high. On occasion livestock sometimes get their feet up on the top rail. This is why the top horizontal rail extends to the overhead tub spreader to ensure legs don’t drop down in between the panels.

Noise reduction

Calm livestock are easier and safer to work. This is why Hi-Hog caulks the sheeted metal tub panels to minimize noise.
