The Commercial 576 Head 'Beast'
This impressive yard is designed for serious producers who require substantial yard capacity and efficient flow. The main entry point to the yards is 6m wide, and all internal gates are a minimum of 3m wide. We custom-designed this yard specifically for a customer managing large mobs of cattle weighing between 600-800kg.
The Pre-Draft holding capacity of this yard is approximately 280 head, with a Post-Draft Holding capacity of around 290 head. If you require three-way drafting, constructing a large holding pen to facilitate right-hand drafts can be easily achieved.
At the heart of the yard lies a spacious non-stock area, providing operators with ample room. It serves as a designated workstation for those demanding days in the yards, offering a comfortable and functional space.
The Forcing Circle can be operated effortlessly via a handle accessible from the Catwalk.
For yards of this magnitude, we typically incorporate air-operated drafting gates that are driven by EID and/or weight. For more detailed information on these systems, please don't hesitate to reach out to Onefarm.

When it comes to scoping a particular design on a confined site, overall yard dimensions are helpful to understand the overall footprint of a design.
Onefarm can provide more dimensions where required to aid with deciding on a design.
For larger Commercial Yards, a site visit is recommended. Using a drone, we take an aerial shot of your site for our design team to superimpose different yard designs to scale.
Including Loading Ramp Area - 35m x 42m
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.
Holding Capacity - 576
Working Capacity - 392
