Hunter Headbail


Headbails are also available in extra heavy duty. See the Bullock Pacifier section for info on our heavy duty headbail range. Features are the same as the Hunter Headbail but considerably beefed up construction.







Designed to minimise dirt build up (thus rust). Easy to clean.

The inconvenience of grease nipples is eliminated.
Yellow soft handle grips for safety and quickly locating control levers.

Bolt down lugs fitted to base.
Off side operation available but will incur a lead time and a price premium of 5%

Bail arms will automatically open if the bail arms are opened to within 4 inches of the side of the crush. This prevents hip caps being knocked if an inexperienced operator does not fully open the headbail when releasing the animal.

Rear catch available with drop-away handle.


A chin lifter can be purchased separately and can also be fitted to most other headbail & crushes in our range.

The Hunter Headbail (or other headbails in our range) are all ideal options to rejuvinate an old crush by replacing the headbail but not the crush.
Replacing an aged and obsolete headbail with a new headbail is a simple and economical option to rejuvenate a crush.




Features and Benefits of our Headbails

Diamond shape yoke prevents excessive vertical head (thus whole body movement), minimising the need for engaging the chin bar. All chin bars put pressure under the throat which hinder some tasks such as bloat bombing. The Diamond shape yoke is a much more functional design.

Heavy Duty Slide Lock Headbail with infinite incremental catching positions. Quiet no-noise operation.

Drop - Away catching and release handle for safety. Auto engage to facilitate catching. Australian Registered Design Application No. 14007/2008.

Vertical open baffles. Vision of cattle is not restricted hence cattle will walk up closer to it. Makes catching easier.

Chin bar facilitates tasks such as ear tagging and pink eye treatment where restricted head movement is required. Chin bar is standard and can be released via one-handed operation. The over centre operation will not jam and can be released if under pressure.

Galvanised steel construction and then painted with Anti Corrosive Alkyd Based Zinc Phosphate Enamel which is custom made for National Stockyard Systems by a leading industrial paint supplier. A Dry Film Thickness of 50 microns is sought.
