Our Story:

"I was not satisfied with what was available so I built the head gate I wanted to use"
– Norman Martin
By operating a family farm and a small manufacturing shop, not only do we know what farmers need but we know what farmers want. This led us to developing a heavy duty head gate that could withstand the growing weight of cattle, decrease processing time, and address our personal frustration and that of the local community expressing a desire for something better than what they already had.

As a result, during long days one planting season, we began to sketch out our ideals and imagine how we could create something that one person could operate without any hassle. This is why Cow Catch-r breaks away from the traditional squeeze function and opts for a simplified solution – the neck extender.

Then, from testing ideas and prototypes, we came to the current models of head gates. We’re confident our line-up of headgates and chutes efficiency and effectively meet the needs of the hobby farmer all the way to the feedlot facility.
