The codes of the yards refer to average working capacities not a mythological made up figure that some other yard suppliers quote. See below info for more details. The National Stockyard Systems numbers will work for that number of average sized cattle. (A bit like a kitchen where 8 people can stand in it or 2 people can work in it. If you had 8 people standing in the kitchen, nobody could work in it).


  • Realistic yard working capacities are quoted. Generally capacities and total holding numbers are based on area requirements to handle and work 400kg cattle.
  • Cows and calves will require double this area.
  • A circular yard with the same perimeter has a greater surface area than a square or rectangle yard (and stock flow better).
  • Holding capacities quoted on our plans are based on 400 kg dry cattle
  • Cows and calves should never be tightly forced or in the race together

The longer panels utilised in non-pressure areas result in yard larger than they appear on paper/screen.
