Sheep Yards by National Stockyard Systems

  SHEEP LOADING RAMPS


We make a range of loading ramps varying in length from 3.0 metres to 5.0 metres.

Width is 740mm to aid sheep flow. If the ramp is too narrow all movement is stopped if one sheep baulks as the sheep following cannot file past the one that is baulked.

All ramps have our patented concrete floor. Sleel floors should be avoided due to noise and sheep do not like stepping on a shiny galvanised floor. (They think they are walking on water.)

Ramps are generally located off the apex of the working race and V Race. Two gates with no external support frames are swung off the back of the loading ramp. These swing back and fold flat against the ramp when not loading. This allows uninterrupted access along the race for operator and dogs when not loading.

Sheep will load very well up the ramp if located in this position as they believe they are by-passing the race and draft.

Our sheep yard loading ramps are identical to our cattle loading ramps with the exception that the sides are lower. Please see our main Loading Ramps section for more information.
