Your Common Cattle Handling Equipment Problems, Solved.

My cattle move and thrash around when I’m tagging and vaccinating. How do I keep them still? +

A head restraint such as the Head Holder, or Head Sweep or Neck Extenders if you have a hydraulic chute will help keep the animal’s head still and in place.

How do I get better control of my calves for branding, banding and trimming? +

The Calf Restrainer Bar tucks into the hip joint, immobilizing the hip and securely containing the animal, so you can brand, band or trim with ease!

Can I trim cattle in an Arrowquip chute? +

The Calf Restrainer Bar safely restrains calves or lively cattle by tucking into the hip joint, immobilizing the hip and securely containing the animal.

My cattle go down in the chute often. How can I help prevent this? +

Add a Sternum Bar to your chute to provide additional sternum support. By limiting space at the bottom of the chute, the bar helps keep cattle upright and prevents them from going down in the chute.

Is there a way to prevent shoulder bruising when catching cattle? +

Add a Rubber Neck Cushion Kit to your chute to help reduce the chance of shoulder bruising in the head gate while adding to creature comfort.

I’m having trouble getting a secure hold in the head gate on my large bulls. What can I do to help this? +

The Bull Catcher adds a focused pressure point to the head gate and makes catching and securing bulls, and even cows and calves much easier!

Is there an easier way to trim and work on my calves? +

The Calf Restrainer Bar provides excellent access for branding, trimming and banding.

How do I keep my cattle from backing up in the alleys? +

Try installing Alley Stops in your alleyway. These stops ensure that your cattle will not be able to back up in your alleyway and are especially useful if placed directly behind your chute to prevent overcrowding.

Sometimes my small calves are tricky to catch, and I have trouble holding them in the head gate. How can I make this easier? +

Consider adding the Bull Catcher to your head gate. Even though it’s called the “Bull Catcher,” that doesn't mean it’s only useful for catching and securing bulls. By adding a focused pressure point to the head gate, it helps secure even the smallest calves in the head gate.

How do I get better flow in my alleyway? +

Cattle often back up, stand still or overcrowd each other in an alley due to a lack of flight zone access. Cattle love light and are naturally drawn toward it. With Arrowquip's 3E technology incorporated into the Easy Flow Alleys, you're able to adjust the paneling to be high on one side and low on the other with Easy Flow Removable Alley Panels. This ensures that cattle don't get distracted and gives you unobstructed access to cattle’s flight zones.

How do I prevent crowding at the chute? +

Prevent backups and overcrowding at the chute by installing an Alley Stop in the alley section directly behind your chute.
