Portable Corral GatesQuick corral set-up in any pasture is an easy chore with new "Gates On Wheels" that transport on any tractor 3-pt.
"The idea came to me one day when I had two loads of cattle scheduled to sell. I got to thinking how nice it would be if I could put a few bales down in the field to get the cattle together in one place and then set up a corral around them. It would have been too much work at the time but with this new portable corral you can set up anywhere in minutes," says farmer-inventor Ken Hackert, Sully, Iowa.
"Gates On Wheels" consist of a set of 15 corral gates 10 ft. long that mount together in a neat package for 3-pt. transport. The gates are all carried by one main gate that has fittings for the 3-pt. and long carrying hooks at either end. All the other gates are carried on these hooks.
Made from 15 ga. steel tubing, cattle gates stand 50 in. tall and sell for $55.70 apiece. Hog gates, 32 in. tall, sell for $50.94 apiece. Skid steel loader attachments also available.
