ashley and glenda gardiner love their cattle yards
  Ashley & Glenda Gardiner, Bunnan
"The yards are absolutely marvellous. We could not be happier. We have to do most of our cattle work on weekends and it is a pleasure to process our cattle with ease."
Calf Race Outside. An extra rail is added to both sides of the calf race. Calves cannot get their heads through the smaller spacing. Note the double slam on the common force gate.

  Don McFarlane, Cudal
"I spent two days at the Orange Field Days and National Stockyard Systems had the best quality yards there".
