When it comes to a livestock operation, spring and summer are often a hectic time when handling cattle, goat and sheep no matter where you are located. As winter eases into spring, you will likely be busy kidding, lambing, sorting and transporting your herds where they need to go.

As you already know, moving animals that have been overwintered, and their new offspring can be tricky as this is a stressful time for them, causing them to balk at walking into a chute or loading truck.

Our team at D-S Livestock Equipment is familiar with this scenario and offers a range of quality animal handling equipment that can make your job easier!

Sorting Equipment

Our 8-foot portable loading ramp – LR96 comes with balanced 10″ wheels which are easily pushed from either end of the device.
This ramp has five height setting adjustments at increments of 2, 2 ½, 3, 3 ½, and 4 feet. The bottom is 12″ wide to keep animals from turning around. The ramp has angled sides with the top having side panel adjusters to accommodate various loading heights.

Bi-Fold Sorter With Stop – the BS800 has a center panel which folds flat when you are sorting left or right, except when it is in a neutral position, the panel folds out flat to create a stop. The operation of the sorter is done through a 30″ handle with a trigger that locks and unlocks the sorter. It’s 30″ handle keeps you away from the sorter so animals can exit better. The BS800 also supports your raceway panels at the best angle and width.

At D-S Livestock Equipment, we keep a significant inventory on hand to make meeting your orders faster, and we can ship products internationally as well. We are also one of the only providers of hot dipped galvanized livestock equipment, which translates to no paint and no rust.
