Calving Gates

Calving Gates

Calving gates were once a luxury item to have in your shed but in recent times they have become a necessity. They offer vastly improve safety and stress free enviroment for farmer, animal and vet. Although we canôt claim to have invented the calving gate, we would like to think we are at the fore front in their design and innovation. We started with a simple 3 in 1 calving gate in 2010 and now have three models and have them go onto be used for many other jobs other than calving such as young bull dehorning, calf dehorning and AI. All our calving gates are custom made to suit your individual requirement. We maintain a stock of gate parts throughout the year so that one can be assemblied to your requirements in a little over a week.


Since 2010 our calving gates have been sold throughout Ireland and the UK.


The MK I to III series of gates are truly multifunctional gates. Its main advantage over a rigid or conventional calving gate is that the main gate can completely close around the animal. This allows for more effective "Marshalling" of the animal into the head lock section of the gate. It can also be folded flat against the wall it hangs off. Stability in the working position is achieved via our unique drop down leg. 

The MK III is the latest in Bo Steel's ongoing research and development into how calving gates can make your life easier and safer. So whats next?
* Headlock gate - extra position to allow small stock such as calves to be handled, ideal for dehorning calves.
* Operating/Close over gate - more room to allow milking or training calves to suck.
* Caesearan Gate - This can now also be used to close the gap in the Drafting gate preventing stock from entering the calving pen when in use.
