Cattle Vet Crush & Head Bails Plans


Cattle Vet Crush & Head Bails Plans Book includes plans to build a crush or head bails (head-gate) with the following features:

  • sheeted lower side gates
  • baulk gate
  • needle gate
  • rump push-up ratchets and bar (anti-backing bar)
  • sliding entry gate

These plans are the same as our other Cattle Crush & Head Bails Plans except that these plans do not include the ratchet kit. Instead, they include drawings of the ratchet parts so that you may make them yourself or have them made for you. If you purchase these plans and need the cad dxf files to have the parts either laser, plasma or water jet cut, please let us know by email and we will send the files to you via email.

You can include everything that is shown in the book such as sheeted lower side gates (sheeted lower gates protect the animal and the operator from injury if the animal kicks), baulk gate, needle gate and the rump push-up ratchets and bar (anti-backing bar) or just make yourself a simple vet crush.

Plans to make just the head bail (head gate) are included in the book if you only need a head bail. The entry frame of the head bail is the same width as the race gates and weigh crate in our Cattle Handling Equipment Plans Book, so it can be adapted to fit most of our other equipment plans.

A materials and cutting list is also supplied for both the vet cattle crush and the head bails.

The 75mm caster wheels for the crush can be found here Cattle Sliding Gate or Cattle Crush Wheels. The crush head bails require 2 wheels and the sliding entry gate requires 3 wheels.
