Cattle Yards: Smart-Yards™ - Beef

Yards are like a ute, you need them, you abuse them and expect them to work when you want to. Wood or steel are the main elements used in constructing yards, both have advantages and disadvantages, which ones apply to you, only you will know. A choice of steel yards has however proven superior to wood by many farmers. Design, flexibility of change, value retention, saleability of yards as a chattel when a farm is sold, full depreciation in year of purchase, no breaking rails ever are all benefits which appeal.... look further into the options we offer. Proven and solid designs for a robust farming profit future.

Robust Construction

With 40% Visual Barriers Stock Are Intimidated

All Smartyard systems are extremely robust and solid, no wonder they have a 10 year bend it or replacement warranty on the 6 rail and 7 rail heavy panels and gates. If you are after a solid system which will last forever this is it. Do not settle for weaker systems, smaller rails or greater rail spacings. Cattle are so much more settled when they are confined, when cattle feel how solid the yards are they are intimidated and settle easier and handle with a lot less stress.  The heavy wide rails in a Smartyard do that. Safe, solid and super smart. Want to learn more talk to us 0800 80 90 98

Tru Curve™ Panels

Curves Move Cattle Faster

Tru Curve™ panels are a unique feature of the Smart-Yard designs. Tru Curve™ is proven to make cattle flow and work for you, rather than you doing the hard work the design does it for you. With or without catwalks. Full 180 degrees works best but part curves are also an option. Optional reduccing width feature allows you to reduce the width of the race and avoid those animals turning on you. Engineering would rather see us have straight panels and just make it up from short and long panels, but nothng works like a tru curve so our motto is do what is right and what works best for the stock and farmer.

Sliding Gates

These fast acting split sliding gates (like elevator doors) provide clear vision to ensure easy cow flow. Double acting gates ensure quicker closing off the gab so next animal in line does get stopped much easier then with single acting gates.  Steel and  wooden yards options, open and screened. Also note these slide gates have vertical rails so cattle can not climb up! or break legs. Slide gates should never have horizontal rails!  Equipped with our unique self locking door system to ensure animals following do not open the gate once it is shut. Great solution to make farnming ezy

This ramp is build to the highest standards. Catwalks on both sides and an escape deck with side gates.
