TURRET GATE & FZA SYSTEM
FLIGHT ZONE AVOIDANCE SYSTEM
The TURRET Gate is an advanced gate design that shuttles back through the centre Turret, repositioning behind waiting animals. It eliminates the need to swing the gate back open into the path of waiting animals and virtually eliminates the need for humans to be in with the cattle. The TURRET Gate can swing forward and back and, at the same time, shuttle.
The TURRET Gate is very easy to use and does not require experience or skill to operate. The automated movement lowers the stress on cattle by eliminating human contact in potential high-impact areas. Less staff are required and most importantly the staff are safe.
The Remote Control enables the user to operate the Gate from up to 30 metres away. The TURRET Gate operates on low pressure with the hydraulic pressure release set so cattle cannot be crushed or injured.
The TURRET Gate virtually eliminates contact with animals in this high impact area with the use of its 320-degree operational Swing and Shuttle feature.
REDUCES STRESS ON ANIMALS
Automated movement lowers animal stress, increasing their safety and virtually eliminates human contact with animals in potential high-impact areas. Humans are removed from the animals flight zone while the animals flow through the TURRET Gate without added pressure or the use of electric jiggers. The remote control helps create this no-stress area for animals and humans.
LESS PEOPLE, LESS STRESS, ADDED SAFETY!
THE TURRET GATE HELPS KEEP YOUR CATTLE CALM AND YOUR PEOPLE SAFE.
The TURRET Gate is easily installed and up and running in no time.

Automatic Livestock Drafting System
For automated cattle draft systems, Catagra Group work in conjunction with MBI Engineering. MBI have considerable knowledge of automation within the mining industry and have applied this experience to create a prototype automated hydraulic drafting system with the Silencer Hydraulic Crush. This prototype was installed on a property handling up to 1,000 head per day.
These systems can be programmed to draft via remote control, weight or RFID tags, giving the farmer the information that they need at the time of drafting, without the need for sifting through files and records to see how their livestock is performing. This system interfaces with the customer’s weigh indicator to provide the benefits of automation. This removes human error during the drafting process and ensures the animals go where they are meant to.
Silencers cattle handling equipment is endorsed by Temple Grandin who has had tremendous influence within the cattle industry by educating people on cattle behaviour and yard design.
