Restrain stock with Headbails that can take the strain

Animals hit the headbail with extreme force. Te Pari headbails are engineered to withstand anything that’s thrown at them making animal restraint safer for beast and operator. This makes a standalone Classic 1000 Headbail the ideal retrofit solution for animal restraint in your existing yards. The healthcare of any herd of cattle is almost impossible without a headbail. It is often considered the yard’s most important feature.

Which type of Cattle Headbail do I need?

In general terms there are two types of headbails; self-catching headbails and full opening manual concertina-style headbails. Self catching headbails such as the Te Pari Automatic Headbail can be adjusted to accommodate different size animals. The vertical double doors swing in automatically to lock when the animal moves forward. This gate is intended for quieter cattle without horns and normally need adjustment for different sizes of stock.

Full opening headbails, such as the Classic C1000, are more appropriate for a group of mixed sized cattle because they do not need adjustment for different size animals. The doors slide in from each side and lock at any position. No matter what type of headbail you select, it is important that it is fitted, adjusted correctly and maintained. Te Pari headbails are designed for safe and easy operation, with minimal maintenance.
