The Cattle Yard Gates

   The gate system and joining system are protected by Australian Registered Design
   No 304108 and Provisional Patent Application No. 2005902463. This revolutionary
   gate and joining system was also awarded the Encouragement Award at the
   prestigious "The Land & NSW Farmers Association Farm Inventor Of The Year
   Competition" at Ag Quip 2005.
The system is exclusive to National Stockyard Systems Pty Ltd.



Mitre Cut and welded for strength (not straight cut or

Gusset braced to maintain frame square.

Auto stop on top of gate combined with bottom stop prevents gate twisting after repeated slamming.

Ground pin cleats standard. (Ground pins supplied in standard pricing with all yards).

Gate swings back 180 degrees to follow cattle flow and generally rests beside a panel to prevent stock being stuck behind it. Also a 2.5-meter gate can be closed while standing 5 meters from the latch.

Fail safe stop prevents gate flying past slam catch.

Gate will swing over 90 degrees through if cattle flow direction is required to be reversed. This is simply achieved by lifting the gate.



Solid continuous gudgeon allows for vertical movement to override the fail safe slam catch if required

Slam catch is standard on all gates under 4.1m on all yards from GP 5 Rail to Bullock 6 Rail. Even small yards for small numbers should facilitate easy, low stress and enjoyable stock handling.
Not just a generic gate. Note the left hand or right hand closing of the gates. This tailors each gate to cattle flow requirements. (Pictured is a right hand closing gate).

Most gates close on the outside of the yard. As the gate can be swung and latched from any position this means you are closer to the centre of the yards which means less walking.

Slam catches standard on all gates under 3.3 meters

Double entrance gates are supplied with an 800mm long chain so they can be chained back to an adjoining panel to facilitate stock entrance.

(Gate cross-over latches also available)

Two chains and catches are supplied with all double gates. Both gates can be chained back against the panel.

"I think I was one of the first to order a set even though I was a bit skeptical about how good they'd be... but... they are absolutely brilliant and Angie loves the gates".

Yards are a big investment and they needed to be got right to suit our particular requirements. We researched very carefully before deciding to go with National Stockyard Systems. Another pleasing feature is that the yards are a lot bigger than they look on paper.
