Easy Flow Adjustable Cattle Alley
Easy Flow Adjustable Cattle Alley Video Transcript
At Arrowquip, we believe in innovative design and engineering, while taking care of the rancher and the ranch. Introducing Arrowquip’s new and improved Easy Flow Adjustable Cattle Alleys. These cradle-shaped alleys are built to be safer, quieter, and more efficient than ever before with a design that uses cattle behaviour to your advantage. The newly integrated 3E System includes patented removable panels, which allow you to modify the height on both sides of the alley. This saves you significant time and effort, especially when combined with point of balance handling techniques for optimal flow. With newly added adjustment cables, you can effortlessly adjust the width of the alley from just one side, going from 30 inches down to 17 inches in maximum width. And with a narrow base, working livestock of any size is much easier because they can’t turn back around. For increased safety, the sides drop down fully in case an animal needs to be released immediately, while the NEW safety latches prevent this from happening unintentionally. With this improved patented design, alley sections bolt together tightly using one bow instead of a pin-clip connection, reducing noise, cost, and space. You can also create any configuration you want with the Easy Flow Alleys, whether it’s a straight or curved alleyway leading to a chute or a load-out. With Arrowquip, you’re guaranteed maximum efficiency, resulting in higher profits, and more time to do the things that truly matter to you and your family. This is innovative cattle handling like never before and a new global standard in the cattle equipment industry. This is the NEW Easy Flow Adjustable Cattle Alley. The bar has been set.

Arrowquip’s improved Easy Flow® Adjustable Cattle Alleys are designed to be safer, quieter, and more efficient. Cradle-shaped and fully adjustable, the Easy Flow Cattle Alleys can accommodate cattle of any size with easy adjustments. With spring-loaded locking systems and safety latches, you can quickly modify the width of the alley from one side by simply pulling on the adjustment cables. Adhering to low-stress cattle handling principles, the Easy Flow Alleys have caulked flat sheeting and nylon bushings over the slam-latch pins to reduce noise. Additionally, the alley sections bolt tightly together to eliminate the need for pins.
The Easy Flow Cattle Alleys now come with the 3E: Easy Entry and Exit System with the NEW removable panels. Cattle only see what you want them to see in the Easy Flow Alleys. By modifying the panel sides to your preference, pressure zone handling techniques can be applied to regulate flow with ease. For further customization and control, rolling alley gates and kicker panels can also be added to create the alley system of your dreams. There are infinite configurations possible to suit your needs.
With easy adjustments, excellent animal control, and the utmost in animal safety, the Adjustable Easy Flow Alleys are designed to provide increased efficiency in your complete cattle handling system.

The cradle on the Easy Flow Cattle Alley is fully adjustable from 29.5" to 18", giving you the ability to accommodate animals of any size and keep them from turning back. You can easily change the settings of both sides of the alley from one side by pulling on the adjustment cables connected to the spring-loaded cam-slam latches. For added security, the adjustable sides include safety latches to ensure they do not drop down unintentionally.
You can now customize what cattle see in the Easy Flow Alley with the removable panels. Adjusting the sheeting height to your preference allows you to apply point of balance handling techniques effectively to regulate the flow of cattle. The standard Easy Flow Cattle Alley comes with two removable panels and extra panels are available, if needed. For easy storage, the removable panels bolt onto the sides of the alley when not in use.
Integrated Cattle Alley Scales
Arrowquip’s NEW Weigh Crate can be integrated within your complete cattle handling system at any point to provide fast and accurate weigh-ins while keeping livestock flowing efficiently through the alley. 8’ Easy Flow Cattle Alley Sections can be fitted with an aluminum cattle weigh platform, giving you the option to integrate a weigh crate within your alley system seamlessly.
While other Weigh Crates have straight sides, limited adjustments, and can be a point where calves may turn around, a consistent cradle-shaped alley that narrows to the center ensures that there is no point in your handling system where livestock can turn back. The adjustable sides range from 29.5” to 18” to accommodate cattle of any size, and the adjustable 3E Panels allow you to control what cattle see while in the alley to minimize stress.
Simply add the conversion kit that features an aluminum cattle weigh platform and rolling alley gates to your assembled Easy Flow to create a Cattle Alley Scale Section to your alley system. The heavy-duty aluminum cattle weigh platform features stamped 1/4” aluminum plate for proper cattle traction in the weigh crate, and can be placed at any point within your alley system for convenience.
Easy Flow with the 3E System
With the customizable removable panels, you can control what cattle see in the alley. This allows you to use light to your advantage together with point of balance handling techniques to regulate cattle flow. When handling small calves, you are able to control their movement easily by using low sheeting on the working side. Additionally, the Easy Flow Alley features a lowered bottom bar on both ends which reduces foot traps when entering and exiting the alley.
Better Cattle Flow With S-Flow
An S-Flow System generates constant flow of cattle by incorporating arcs into full handling systems. S-Flow is ideally applied when handling large groups of cattle for drafting or loading into a truck. Based on cattle’s instinct to follow curves, consistent movement can be maintained as they are repeatedly convinced that they are escaping. You can create a curved system with the Easy Flow Cattle Alleys by adding kicker panels, and connecting a 3E Budflow® Tub to create the draw required for crowd movement.
The Easy Flow Cattle Alleys are designed with quiet features all around to improve cattle movement, such as caulking on sheet metal and nylon bushings over the slam-latch pins. By bolting the Easy Flow Alleys together, pin rattling is eliminated to keep stress levels at a minimum, and allow cattle to flow calmly through the alley system.
Mix and match 8’ and 10’ sections together with the optional rolling alley gates and kicker panels to create the cattle alley system of your dreams! With durable panel clips available, you can also attach the Easy Flow Alley to the rest of your cattle handling system.
