Head Gates
Model 30 & 30T-Heavy Duty Manual Headgate

The Model 30L manual headgate is ruggedly built to handle small calves or your largest bull. This headgate has earned the reputation as the toughest, most dependable headgate in the industry. Now available with optional neck bars and a manual headsweep to control the animal’s head movement. Working on the head and neck area of cattle has never been easier.

Features Include

  • Parallel opening doors and a low step over help prevent a downed animal from choking.
  • Gate closes down to 3” to hold small calves and latches up to 18” to hold your largest bulls.
  • A unique hinging system and slides push dirt and manure to the outside with each opening, eliminating build-up and door jams.
  • Improved positive ratchet lock not affected by weather conditions.
  • Fully opening doors provide a wide exit and prevent animals from stumbling or jumping when exiting.
  • The Model 30T has 6 more inches of gate clearance height and a beefed up control handle for working large bulls, taller exotics or bison. Specify left or right handle control when ordering.

 

Model 75 Hydraulic Headgate

The Model 75 Hydraulic Headgate features “Complete Parallel Closing Action” top-to-bottom, eliminating possible choking and providing a clean, wide opening for cattle to exit the headgate without injuries. These two benefits alone are reasons this headgate will pay for itself time and again while cheaper scissor type headgates will end up costing you more money because of injuries to your valuable cattle.
Removable Neck Bars come standard to help stabilize the animal’s head. Add the optional headsweep to virtually eliminate any head movement. Quiet opening and closing action makes working with this headgate very enjoyable.

Features Include

  • Factory presets hydraulics to 450 PSI on the animal’s neck to prevent injury.
  • Headgate shields slide closed parallel with equal pressure top to bottom to prevent downed animals from choking.
  • Fully opening doors provide a wide exit and help prevent animals from jumping or stumbling when exiting.
  • Removable neck extenders that provide a firm hold for implanting are standard.
  • One-hand controls for easy operation - no manual labor required.
  • Heavy-duty construction withstands heavy feedlot use.
  • Quiet opening and closing action.
  • An optional headsweep controls the animal’s head movement for easy implanting, ear tagging, etc.
  • Simple yet effective design eliminates costly repairs.

 

Model A-25 Automatic Self-Catching Headgate

The A-25 is an excellent headgate for one-man cattle handling, allowing the operator to be behind the animal while it catches itself.

Features Include

  • Spring assisted gates automatically return to the catch position when the release control rod is reversed. The control rod allows you to release and prod the animal from behind for exit.
  • A positive tie rod synchronizes the doors, eliminating troublesome chains or cables.
  • Fully opening doors provide a wide exit and help prevent animals from stumbling or jumping when exiting.
  • Two simple neck and head adjustments allow you to change from large to small animals in a few seconds.
  • Controls can be switched from right to left hand in a few seconds to match your site requirements.
Chutes
Model 450 & 450W Squeeze Chute

The Model 450 Squeeze Chute is the top of the For-Most chute line. Arguably the best manual squeeze chute on the market today.

Every detail has been engineered to offer tremendous access to essential areas of any sized critter. This chute is easy to operate and provides safety to both the cowboy and the critter. Many options are available to customize this chute to fit your needs and your budget. There is not a better manual squeeze chute on the market today. Stout enough to handle any size operation for many, many years.

  • Both sides open from the working side for sorting or access to the animal.
  • Chute sides are 30" wide at the top and taper in with 6 different adjustments from 22" wide to 9" ensuring any size animal will be held securely yet comfortably centered in the headgate.
  • Well known for the best chute trailering system on the market, the 450W features a removable tongue with top-wind jack along with removable fender wheel assemblies. Easy-to-crank brake winch safely raises and lowers chute into position with minimal effort. Fender assemblies protect that expensive pulling vehicle from rock damage.
  • Optional wire floor
  • Optional split tailgate offers greater strength, extended coverage area and a labor saving easy-to-use activation lever. Can be sheeted upon request if enclosed tailgate is desired.

Crowding Tubs

For-Most crowding tub and alley systems consist of individual components that can be configured into almost any design that will accommodate your needs. Our support staff will help you design a system that will meet your needs and provide the optimal handling environment. Study our features and you will discover that a well thought out system will pay for itself many times over. Inferior systems will end up costing you more in the end due to inefficient flow, added stress or injuries to your cattle and your help, or they just aren’t built to last like For-Most.

The tub and alley are completely reversible so they may be set up to match your site requirements - left, right, half circle or straight ahead. Tub and alley panels feature rugged construction with 2 3/8” 10-gauge round tubing and 1 1/2” 14-gauge square tubing throughout, giving you a product that will last for many years. Complete your working system with a For-Most chute for the ultimate in cattle handling equipment.

Our unique alleys are designed to keep you on the ground and off dangerous catwalks. An innovative adjustable overhead grill system prevents cattle from climbing & turning around.
Alley bows control the directional flow with 6’ or 8’ V’d solid panels forming the solid alley. These heavy duty panels pin to the bows and are easily removed for clean out or to access an animal in an emergency.

Our top grill prevents animals from climbing and turning around in the alley, a common occurence in alleys without grills. The grills adjust from 54” to 64” high to accommodate all sizes of livestock.

Single alley sections are 30” wide at top and taper to the bottom that adjusts from 22” down to 18”. Mounting pads on alley bows are provided for permanent installation to concrete.
Overhead alley stops drop behind cattle as they pass through the alley preventing cattle from backing away from the chute. Overhead stop also helps prevent injuries to the animal’s ribs or sides. Alley panels and grills are also available in 2’, 3’, 4’, or 5’ lengths for customized setups.

Nothing on the market today provides a better, more efficient cattle handling system than the For-Most Double Alley system. For-Most was the first company to manufacture an alley system that provides two side-by-side adjustable alleys coming out of the tub. The reason this system works so well is that the cattle see a large 5’ escape hole which they readily go through. Once inside the double alley, the cattle are then funneled into a single alley and then
into the chute.

The system keeps cattle calmer because they don’t need to be prodded and worked up just to go into the alley, therefore, they stay calmer all the way through the chute. It’s a fact that cattle perform better with less stress and there is nothing you can buy that is less stressful than a For-Most working system that includes the Double Alley.

Our innovative double alley design lets you quickly adjust the width of each alley from 30” down to 20”. The adjustment is easily made with no tools in just minutes. The outside panels are sheeted so the cattle can’t see out, but the inside panel is open so cattle remain calmer because they are standing next to a buddy.

The double alley is a great way to increase alley capacity per linear foot of working area. You will be truly amazed at how much faster and easier cattle can be worked in this system.

For-Most is the leading nationwide distributor of Tru-Test scales because we make it easy and convenient to get fast, accurate weights on your cattle. Whether you want to weigh your cattle in the chute, behind the chute or on a platform or separate cage, portable or stationary, For-Most has the solution that will work for your situation.
