Calving Pen Video Transcript
At Arrowquip, we believe in innovative design and engineering, while taking care of the rancher and the ranch. Introducing the NEW Calving Pen from Arrowquip. This dual-purpose pen is built for safety, control, and accessibility in the most critical situations. Working with vulnerable animals is always challenging, but with the built-in sweep gate and circular pen design, getting them into the head gate can be done quickly, safely and with minimal effort. For optimal control and security, lock-out points prevent cattle from pushing back on the sweep gate while the built-in partial chute floor keeps the pen stationary, even when handling rowdy animals. The new and improved Calving Pen includes an upgraded back gate with 7 and a half feet of access. This is the largest rear access ever offered in a circular pen and gives you enough space to perform safe delivery when pulling calves. Independently locked top and bottom split gates are located on both sides of the pen, so you have maximum access while keeping the animal secure. To help with recovery, the self-catch head gate opens back into the Calving Pen, so ranchers can closely monitor the animal after a procedure. Designed with dual functionality, the Calving Pen also works as a basic chute to accommodate any type of cattle that requires isolation from the herd, allowing you to perform any treatments and procedures in a controlled environment. With guaranteed maximum efficiency you can gain 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 Arrowquip’s NEW Calving Pen. The bar has been set.

The Calving Pen is built for maximum safety and control in high-pressure situations when dealing with vulnerable animals. Designed as a circular pen, the Calving Pen ensures that cattle are led safely into the head gate with the assistance of the sweep. For added security, the sweep gate features lock-out points to prevent cattle from pushing back against the gate.
To access different parts of the animal, top and bottom individually locked doors are located on both sides of the pen. In the event that a calf needs to be pulled, the wide 7.5’ back gate provides you with enough space to perform safe delivery. Animals placed in the Calving Pen often need time to recuperate after a procedure. The self-catch head gate is designed to allow the rancher to closely monitor the animal while it is in recovery by opening back into the pen to keep the animal inside.
Designed with animal and rancher safety in mind, the Calving Pen is equipped with features that provide great animal control and accessibility in critical situations while minimizing stress and risk.

The half-circle design of the Calving Pen ensures that cattle are easily moved with the sweep gate into the head gate. There are no corners for stressed out cattle back into, ensuring handlers can stay safely outside of the pen. When the sweep gate is locked onto the back gate, the Calving Pen transforms into a basic chute to keep cattle stationary when undergoing a procedure.
Featuring a wide 7.5' back gate, the Calving Pen provides ample space for pulling calves. Additionally, the top and bottom split doors on both sides of the pen have independent locks, offering full side access to the animal while keeping livestock securely contained.
I purchased my maternity pen from B&B livestock in camp point IL! Great to work with them and I wouldn’t buy anything other than an Arrowquip!! I’m so happy with the maternity pen! Cheap insurance for losing a nice momma and/or baby. Didn’t have to use it to pull anything this year but it was very useful to vaccinate/AI my mommas and to graft a second calf on a momma!! 😁😁💕💕💕

The sweep gate enables the handler to quickly and safely secure the animal in the head gate, and features lock-out points to ensure that livestock cannot push the gate back towards the handler. To closely monitor a cow after an operation, the self-catch head gate opens back into the pen to keep the cow contained.
