Item Number: Adjustable Straight Alley Parts

In addition to Hi-Hog’s S-Alley and U-Alley you can also consider one of three straight alley sections. The straight sections are most commonly used as part of a combination alley to create a custom alley made from standard stock products.

4'-6" Straight Alley

This is the shortest of the three straight cattle handling alleys.

Item #86 is a 4' long sheeted panel and it is available only in the 66" height. The livestock panel will connect with our stationary alley spreaders, our adjustable S-Alley spreaders or the 'S' side of our U-to-S Alley spreaders.

To turn this alley section into a 4' sorting section, or a palpation cage, replace one or more of the #86 with an item #85.

7' Straight Alley

This is the middle length of the three straight cattle handling alleys available.

The 7′ long panels are available in two heights. Item #250 is 66” high while item #251 is 60” high. These panels will connect with our stationary alley spreaders, our adjustable S-Alley spreaders or the ‘S’ side of our U-to-S Alley spreaders.

If you wish to sort livestock out of this section replace item #250 or #251 with item #1380 or #1375.


9′-3″ Straight Alley
This is the longest length of the three straight cattle handling alleys available. The 9′-3″ long panels are available in two heights. Item #240 is 66” high while item #241 is 60” high. These panels will connect with our stationary alley spreaders, our adjustable S-Alley spreaders or the ‘S’ side of our U-to-S Alley spreaders.

In most situations, where an alley travels in a straight line, the S-Alley would be preferred over a straight sided alley. There are situations, however, where the introduction of a section of adjustable width straight alley can add value to your system. Because Hi-Hog’s alley components are based on a common connector system you are free to combine alley types to get the alley you require.

Below are four examples of situations where adding an adjustable straight alley section can improve your cattle handling system.

Sometimes the introduction of a straight section of alley between the crowding tub and working alley can provide your livestock with a more welcoming view into the alley. Introducing the straight section in these cases will improve cattle flow and handling efficiency.
