Go Anywhere Calving Pen
"It's a great aid to the `calving process' when problems occur during birth, or the newborn calf needs nursing assistance," says Powder River of its new portable 10 by 10 ft. "go anywhere" calving pen.
Its adjustable, self-catch headgate has an exclusive safety feature: Should the animal being attended lie down, a quick foot-trip release near the bottom of each stanchion widens the gate opening for immediate relief.
The self-catch headgate holds the cow or heifer secure while she's crowded by the 7 ft. (2 piece) crowd gate over to the 10 ft. (2 piece) bow gate. The 2-piece gates are hinged so the bottom or top sections can be swung together, or independently.
A 30-in. wide roll gate (on rancher's right) provides easy access to the versatile new calving pen. It's made of 1.5 in. 14 gauge square tubing. Sells for $1,975 in Canada, $1,750 in the U.S.
