Neck Rails Help Keep Cattle Eating
Neck rails keep cattle from crawling over the feed bunks and out of the feedlot. They also reduce feed waste and reduce feed bunk maintenance. Te Slaa Manufacturing wasn’t the first to make neck rails, but they came up with the easiest way to install them with their Feed Bunk Post with Neck Rail.
“Most cattle feeders will have a welding shop come on-site and custom weld pipes in place,” says Justin Te Slaa. “Our Posts with Neck Rails are ready to go. Just bolt them on. We drill holes to match the type or brand of feed bunks you have.”
The neck rail posts are made to hold two 2 3/8-in. pipe rails. The posts are 40 in. tall and made with 2 1/2-in. sq., 1/4-in. thick steel tubing. They are designed to provide a 15-in. space between the bottom neck rail and the top of the bunk. The bottom neck rail extends 9 1/2 in. out from the post.
Feed Bunk Posts with Neck Rails are currently priced at $60 unpainted and $70 painted. “Prices may be going up if the price of steel increases,” says Te Slaa.
Most Te Slaa manufacturing customers tend to live within 200 miles of the company’s offices in Hull, Iowa. However, their neck rails are widening the customer base.
“We’ve shipped them to Kansas, Montana and Ohio,” says Te Slaa. “We even had a call from a guy in Florida.”
