Peter Russell, Lyndhurst

“What I like about this system is the panels are bolted together rather than pinned together, which really cuts down the noise. This, combined with the slam catches on the gates were a key selling point.

My two daughters often help out in the yards. The yards provide a safe working environment which is very important to me.

Compared to our old yards, it is a lot less stressful on the cattle and us.”

In addition to running his 364- hectare property “Mt Icely”, Mr Russell operates a rural contracting busines and is a director with On-Trac Ag in Orange, Mudgee & Bathurst, which is a distributor for New Holland agricultural machinery in Australia.

Our Yards in Action

The Steel - used in all our cattle yards & cattle crushes.

All rail profile within the National Stockyard Systems product range are manufactured by either One Steel Australian Tube Mills or Orrcon Steel. The sections are doubly – symmetric oval for increasing bending strength, bruise minimisation and stiffness in stockyard applications. The rail is manufactured to High Tensile Grade 350LO – 450LO, confirms to Australian Standards AS 1163 for structural steel, and is galvanised inside and out for long lasting rust protection. The posts used confirm to the same properties as the rail.

Galvanizers Association of Australia Approved

The SupaGal steel used in all our steel cattle yards & steel cattle crushes is manufactured and tested to meet the requirements of the following specifications:

  • AS/NZ 4792 – Hot Dip galvanised (zinc) coatings on ferrous hollow sections applied by a continuous or specialised process.
  • Minimum Coating Mass: 100g/M2 inside and out.
  • Galvanizers Association of Australia Approved.

“It’s really nice to deal with a professional outfit that delivers exactly what it promised.”

The Paint - used in all our cattle yards & cattle crushes.

In April 2006 National Stockyard Systems commissioned a leading industrial paint supplier to manufacture and supply a custom made – 215 Anti Corrosive Alkyd Based Zinc Phosphate Enamel – to enhance product longevity.
A Dry Film Thickness of 50 microns is sought.

Our Aim

Our aim is to develop, manufacture and market a range of livestock handling equipment that optimises value for clients by increasing stock flow and minimising stress on both operator and stock.

Our cattle yards are designed based on our knowledge of natural stock behaviour, gained over many years of working with cattle. A wide range of sizes are available from small cattle yards through to very large cattle yards.

We strive to design and manufacture innovative cattle yards, built to an exacting quality and practical design. Many of our groundbreaking cattle yard features (including the joining system and slam catch) are registered designs or protected by patents, and offer unique features not available elsewhere in the stockyard market.

We also can adapt our products to refurbish and improve existing yards.
