CALVING TIPPING CHUTE
Hi-Hog’s small animal tipping table is an ideal chute for handling stock such as calves and goats.
The self-catch, auto-return headgate is activated and locked by the animals themselves. This frees the operator to work more effectively from the flight zone of the stock. Working from behind the animal will minimize livestock stress and increase processing efficiency. With your stock secured in the headgate the chute can be squeezed and tipped in one smooth motion. The adjustable width ensures you can set the table to restrain and elevate your goat or calf (up to 450 lbs). Four spring loaded sheeted side access panels swing down independently to provide clear access to the full length of your animal. To access the feet the sheeted foot panel can be swung up and/or removed. Dally cleats are also provided at each end of the table to safely secure legs. An optional neck extender is also available on the calf tipping chute.
Whether you’re calving heifers, grooming show cattle, or performing general treatments such as preg tests, semen checks, embryo transfers, C-Sections, starting calves, milking out cows, treating utters, or treating feet. The calving chute includes all the core features of our larger calving pen. Like the calving pen the calving chute provides full access to both sides of your animal. The included connectors make it easy to integrate this chute with existing penning. Many ranchers locate the calving chute where they can easily lead an animal such as in an existing alley way.
The self-catch calving pen headgate with adjustable stanchions is centered in the front panel to provide unmatched access to the cow. The centered position of the cow offers excellent access to either side which is particularly good when you are trying to get twins to suck, or if you’re trying to milk out on one side while a calf sucks on the other side.
CALVING BARN SYSTEM DESIGNS
In most situations where an alley travels in a straight line the S-Alley would be preferred over the straight alley options shown here. There are situations however that challenge our designers to create a system that will fit within our customer’s facility where our traditional S-Alley and U-Alley systems will not work. This is when we call on our straight alley sections.
