Arrowquip's Cattle Sorting Alleys are designed to suit any operation with a variety of models that can divert cattle in up to three directions. The versatility of the Cattle Sorting Alleys allows you to sort cattle in two ways: within the alley system and after the chute. Post-Chute Drafting is now possible by placing the Draft Module after the chute. Unlike manually separating livestock in a pen, running cattle through a system to draft is a safer and faster way to send cattle into different yards. The Post-Chute Cattle Draft Module is designed to allow you to control the Cattle Sorting Alley with one hand and the Head Gate with the other to regulate the flow of cattle. The gates on both sides of the Draft Module provide enough space to access the head of the animal and allow you to pass through the system with ease.

The Cattle Sorting Alleys are designed to with high 4' sheeting to eliminate distractions and keep stress levels to a minimum during this high-pressure situation. Spring-loaded doors attached to a pulley system allow you to quickly change directions without causing any pauses in the flow.

With a variety of models and combinations you can choose from, the possibilities are endless for creating a configuration that best suits your operation's needs. If you need assistance in finding the right solution for your ranch, give our Product Specialists a call and we will be happy help you!

    4' Sheeted Sides

    Sorting is a high pressure point in your cattle handling system. For this reason, Arrowquip Cattle Sorting Alleys feature 4' sheet metal, limiting the ability of cattle to see the operator and making for an easier sorting process.

Pre-Chute Sorting

Pre-chute sorting is used to divert cattle in multiple directions within an alley system. By pairing Arrowquip Cattle Sorting Alleys with Easy Flow Alleys, you can easily create a comprehensive system that leads to different exits such as a chute, loading ramp, or yard. In case a cow that does not need to be worked through the chute enters the system, the Cattle Sorting Alley provides an easy way for it to exit the line without disrupting flow.

Post-Chute Cattle Drafting

Post-chute cattle drafting is a much safer way to sort a mixed group of cattle into separate areas because it does not require you to be in the pen with them. Using the Sorting Alley together with the Cattle Access Gates allows you to manage the flow of livestock easily by running them through an open system and into the Post-Chute Draft Module. This method keeps cattle stress levels to a minimum, while saving time and effort.
