The point of balance is at the animals’ shoulder. All species of livestock will move forward as the handler stands behind the point of balance. They will back up if the handler stands in front of the point of balance.

Many handlers make the mistake of standing in front of the point of balance while attempting to make an animal move forward. It is not necessary to prod every animal. If the animals are moving through the race by themselves, leave them alone. Often they can be moved by tapping the side of the race.

This diagram illustrates the general flight zone of an animal. The actual flight zone of an individual animal will vary depending on how ‘tame’ the animal is. The flight zone gets bigger when an animal becomes excited.

The flight zone is also bigger when you approach ‘head on’. Calm cattle are easier to move. If cattle become excited, it takes 20 to 30 minutes for them to calm back down.

Intelligent Design for Livestock Handling

ProWay are continually developing goat handling equipment and facilities. Goats present several differences in comparison to handling sheep, however for some businesses, goat yards need to accommodate mixed species.

Goat Yards & Handling Equipment designed for the booming goat market.​

“Safety-wise, it’s made handling Goats a hell of a lot easier, a hell of a lot better”

THE PROWAY EXPERIENCE​

When it comes to goat husbandry operations such as drafting, drenching, vaccinating or market specific requirements such as long-term holding or quarantine, many of the same principals of sheep corral design apply to an efficient goat processing area. 

While our goat corral designs feature similar bugle lead ups and pen sizes to our sheep handling range, ProWay understand the differences, challenges and risks posed by goat handling and as such, offer robust product upgrades to make processing safer and more productive.

ProWay’s industry backed design and engineering team are committed to continued product development and have implemented effective modifications to improve animal welfare, operator safety and the ease of operation.

Improvements such as our goat specific panel and gate range, walk over weigh crates, and suspended enclosures for sorting and working alleys reduce the likelihood of injury through goats looking to jump or baulk.

The ProWay Goat Bulk Handler has also made waves in the industry, dramatically improving safety and efficiency for husbandry operations such as tagging, vaccinating, drenching and capsuling by lifting and immobilising bulk lots of goats at a time.

Continual improvement driven by feedback from our clients has contributed to ProWay goat yards and equipment to maximise safety for staff and contractors while ensuring timely and stress-free handling
