The 186 Head Working Area
This is the Working Area of our 186 Head Yard - design that can fit into any larger yard design. This is very similar to the Working Area in our 223 and 273 head yards.
The Working Area within a set of yards often represents the most intense and demanding section. It is widely known that steel provides superior strength and long-term viability, making it a popular choice for yards. By harnessing the strength and modularity of steel, you can optimise your yard's functionality and durability.
Whether you are retrofitting an existing set of yards or constructing a brand new one, the modular nature of our steel Commercial range proves to be a valuable asset. It seamlessly integrates into any yard design, ensuring a seamless and efficient installation process.
The forcing circle has a capacity of 17 head, allowing for a generous 1.5m² per head. As with all our designs, each Force Pen load accommodates approximately 2 race loads. In this case, the forcing circle can hold 2 race loads of cattle, depending on their size.
The seven-section race spans 14m and can comfortably hold approximately 9-11 cattle, depending on their size. Included is a mid race sliding gate for managing the race load in tighter compartments.
To facilitate your installation, timber adaptor brackets are included in these packages. Our experienced Onefarm team can install them for you. Alternatively, we provide comprehensive and easy-to-follow plans with every package, empowering you to handle the installation process yourself.
Discover the utility and efficiency of our Working Area within the 104 Head Yard, where strength, modularity, and efficiency converge. Trust Onefarm to deliver exceptional quality and performance for all your yard requirements.
When contemplating yard capacity, it is crucial to contemplate Holding Capacity and Working Capacity separately.
It's comparable to a kitchen where eight people can stand, but only two people can work efficiently.
If there were eight people standing in the kitchen, no one would be able to work.
The same principle applies to cattle in yards. When handling cattle, they require ample space for turning and movement.
Based on your average adult cattle (450kg), we use 1.5m2 per head for Holding Capacity, or 2.2m2 as a guide for working capacity. This differs based on whether you're running Cows & Calves, Calves alone, Bulls etc.
Race Length - approx. 14m
