A Turn Key Solution!

A Turn Key Solution!

A Te Pari’s product consultants visits the farm to understand the current and future yard requirements. Following the visit, our CAD design team creates a realistic 3D concept of the proposed yard.

Features to take into account when searching for the perfect location are flow, entry and exit, light, loading, access, drafting and more. After the concept is drawn up, the farmer is provided with a scaled render of the yard on a Google Earth map positioned . 

For many clients Te Pari coordinates and oversees the earthwork and drainage developments. If the farmer wants to do the earthworks themselves, we will supply a concrete plan so that the yard area for site works can be prepared.

We recommend that main traffic areas of the yards are concreted or ideally the entire yard. Te Pari can supply and place the concrete for the site as part of the turnkey project.

As part of your turnkey package Te Pari will delivery the yard right to your farm site and unload with a crane. When the site is ready, Te Pari’s own fully equipped installation team will erect and commission the yards

10 Features of a Te Pari Steel Yard...


NZ-Made Anti Bruise Rails

All yards are built with top quality NZ-made oval tubing called Cattlerail on all horizontal rails. This tube has the strength of a square tube however the large flat side makes it animal friendly - no single pressure points and no sharp edges. Deflection analysis has shown that Cattlerail is the strongest in its class.


The Ultimate Gate System

This patented gate design has no bottom brace reducing ‘muck build up’ in the yards and eliminating trip hazards.


Hot Dip Galvanised

All steel components are hot dip galvanised and rust proof. During galvanising each yard component is cleaned in acid to remove all traces of scale or rust, then dipped in galvanising zinc, coating it completely in places unreachable by spray or powder coating.


The U-Bow System

The U-Bow system is uniquely manufactured to leave the upper area of the race completely free of any obstructions or overhead braces.


C-Force Gate System

The Super C-Force Gate System is an optional heavy-duty 3.2m revolving steel gate which reduces the size of a circular force pen as the cattle enter the race. The gate locks quietly into the special gates of the circular pen every 0.5m, moving the cattle up to the race. The pen can hold approximately 15 head of cattle meaning the operator can process 2-3 race loads of cattle before having to refill from the main pens. Almost no need to climb into the forcing pen.


Proven Designs

Te Pari has a wide range of proven plans designed for integration with crushes, scales and drafting systems. With 100's of yard in action for many years you can be assured that a Te Pari Yard actually works!


Wide Catwalk

The Te Pari Cattle Yard uses catwalk braces that attach to the side rails of the panel and to the ground. Timber is then fastened to the braces, which are 1.0m wide, providing plenty of room for several people to work on the catwalk simultaneously. A handrail is optional and recommended in some designs where cattle are regularly held in the area next to the catwalk.


Quiet & Compact Slam Latch Design

The nylon sleeved slam latches are super quiet and safer as animals are kept calm and stress free. The gate latches automatically from either side. The strike plate is extremely compact with rounded edge to prevent stock damage/bruising.


Calf Reducer System

This system allows the user to narrow the width of the race by moving the panels in. Quick and easy to adjust and prevents calves from turning around in the race.


Drop Top Panel System

Outside panels are 1.80m high and inside panels 1.45m high. The lower inside panels allow the operator to bend over and work the stock with ease. For large animals the optional Drop Top Panel System can be fitted to the inside of the race. These panels are 1.8m high, and the top rail folds down to the normal working height of 1.45m. This provides protection if handling large cattle and the option of easy access for younger stock.

The Te Pari design advantage

The Te Pari design advantage

All livestock enterprises have unique requirements, because of this the best cattle yard design is the one that is tailored to suit your operation. We use our range of standard designs as a benchmark for working capacity which are then fine-tuned to meet the individual needs of our clients. In some cases we design from scratch, drawing on our extensive design experience to create a facility specific to your needs.

Te Pari will measure your site to record existing fence lines, laneways, sheds, trees and other infrastructure which need to be incorporated in your new facility. For green field sites we discuss, and review your site selection to ensure it will meet your needs including best access for stock, operators and trucks. We then present you with a 3D render of the proposed design for review and then quoting.

The 'Stockbend' warranty!

The 'Stockbend' warranty!

The force that cattle normally apply on a panel is sideways due to the way they move within the yard. This means the amount of deflection that a rail will sustain is a critical measurement of its real strength. A taller oval profile rail may look stronger but if it has a narrow width profile it will be weaker in action. 

Te Pari panels are stronger! Why?

The custom made Oval Rails in a Te Pari panel are 48mm wide and approx 15% wider than all other market alternatives. 

Our Warranty...

If any yard panel is bent through sideways motion of stock within 60 months of date of delivery we will replace the panel at no cost to you.
