    3E System: Easy Entry & Exit

    The redesigned head gate features Arrowquip's 3E System through its barred curtain-style doors. Since cattle see more light through the head gate, they are easily drawn towards opening, making cattle behavior work for you. With straight sides, cattle will not choke if they go down, no matter the size of cattle.

    Single Lever Operation

    The Q-Catch Cattle Head Gate features Arrowquip's renowned single lever push-pull operation. The ergonomic handle allows you to catch cattle over and over again without becoming fatigued, and provides secure catches every time.

  • Q-Catch Cattle Head Gate in half-open position for smaller livestock

    Auto-Adjusting Head Gate

    The Head Gate automatically adjusts to the size of the livestock you are working without requiring secondary levers and awkward adjustments. Simply open the Head Gate to the size you need for cattle entering the chute! No adjustments needed.

The working chute has all of the adjustments needed. I love the way the head catch works for placing ear tags but yet safe on the animal.

    best design for a calving chute and our need we found, vet loved it to being able to have access from both side for the calf and from the back helped us with a prolapse vet said it took him 3 times as long without that feature. have been extremely happy with product. Thanks

    I have used several different brands and this chute is the best. We have a how calf operation and it is nice not to have to stop and adjust the chute for different sized cattle

      It's great to hear we're your top choice! Thanks for sharing, Brian.

    With other crushes in the past when the cattle have their head in the head yoke occasionally they get on their knees and because other crushes get narrower at the lower part of the head holder then they have problems.

    The full length bars at the front of the Arrowquip crush stop the cattle almost choking themselves when they have their head trapped in the head yoke section if they fall to their knees.

      We're happy to hear your cattle are having an easier time now with our head gate! Thanks for the comment, Jane.
