Sheep Handling Equipment

Over the years IAE have developed an enviable range of sheep handling system incorporating many farmer driven ideas. The modular nature of standard components make it easy to design either your own full layout or to start with a simple basic idea that can be added to as and when circumstance dictates.
The following examples of simple layouts are derived from utilizing standard components: The "Starter" and "Basic" kits are a gradual introduction however they can be added to at a later date to eventually build the complete system "A".

Heavy Duty Sheep Handling System "A" Starter Kit.

4 x 8ft 2" long sheeted hurdles c/w drilled lugs, 1 x Drafting/stop gate, 1 x race joining arch, 1 x lift & swing guillotine gate to suit swing and slide gate, 8 x coupling rods.

System "A" Basic Kit

4 x 8ft 2" long sheeted hurdles c/w drilled lugs, 1 x Drafting/stop gate, 1 x race joining arch, 1 x lift & swing guillotine gate to suit swing and slide gate, 1 x swing and slide gate, 2 x 8ft long 6 railed hurdles c/w drilled lugs, 1 x 2ft 2" long 6 rail hurdles c/w drilled lugs, 1 x 8ft long 6 rail sliding gate hurdle, 2 x 6ft 6" long radiused hurdles c/w drilled lugs, 15 x coupling rods.

Sheep Handling System "A"

Approximately 10000mm long x 5000mm wide holding 40-60 animals, Sliding gates allow stock to move freely through the 2500mm wide holding pens. Swing and slide gate allows the forcing pen to be full all of the time. Swing and slide gate extends the length of the race when in the closed position. Sheeted race can be tapered if required when working on lambs. Drafting/stop gate at the end of the race can shed animals into two small sorting pens each holding 10-16 animals.

Sheep Handling System "B"

Approximately 13480mm long x 5640mm wide. Traditional 4880mm diameter circular forcing pen c/w ring system gate hinges holding approx 40 animals. 6100mm approx sheeted race has slipway section to suit dipping bath (dip bath not included). Sliding gates allow stock to exit freely from the 2820mm dispersal pens. Sheeted race can be tapered if required when working on lambs. Drafting/stop gate at the end of the race can shed animals into two small sorting pens each holding 12 - 18 animals.

Sheep Handling System "C "

Approximately 15411mm long x 5829mm wide holding approx 80-100 animals. Swing and slide gate extends the length of the race when in the closed position. 7800mm approx sheeted race has slipway section to suit dipping bath (dip bath not included). Sliding gates allow stock to move freely through the 2500mm approx wide holding pens. Sheeted race can be tapered if required when working with lambs. 3 way drafting gate at the end of the race can shed animals into two small sorting pens each holding 15-20 animals or straight on through the exit race.

Sheep System "D "

The corner stone of a most versatile system utilizing a 4880mm approx semi circular forcing pen. Approximately 8600mm long x 4880mm approx wide holding approx 40-60 animals. Further holding and dispersal pens need to be added but initially can be made from interlocking sheep hurdles (not included). Options to put sheep through a narrow sorting race, footbath race or 915mm approx wide treatment race. 3050mm x 915mm stand in foot bath is included. Swing and slide gate allows the forcing pen to be full all of the time. Sheeted race can be tapered if required when working on lambs.

Bugle System

The "Bugle" tapers to naturally force animals from a wider pen into the sorting race via a semi circular forcing pen. Approximately 7300mm long x 4000mm approx wide holding 40 - 50 animals. Further holding and dispersal pens need to be added but initially can be made from interlocking sheep hurdles (not included). Animals can be diverted into a 5550mm long x 915mm wide pen prior to the drafting gate if required. Short swing and slide gate allows the forcing pen to be full all of the time. Sheeted race can be tapered if required when working with lambs.
