Cattle Sorting Race
Arrowquip’s Cattle Sorting Races are designed to suit any operation with a variety of models that can divert cattle in up to three directions. The versatility of the Cattle Sorting Races allows you to sort cattle in two ways: within the race system and after the crush. Post-Crush Cattle Drafting is now possible by placing the Drafting Gates and Sorting Race after the crush. Unlike manually separating livestock in a pen, running cattle through a system to draft is a safer and faster way to send cattle into different yards. The Post-Crush Draft Gates are designed to allow you to control the draft with one hand and the yoke gate with the other to regulate the flow of cattle. Both sides of the Drafting Gates open fully to provide enough space to access the head of the animal and allow you to pass through the system with ease.
The Cattle Sorting Races are designed with high sheeting to eliminate distractions and keep stress levels to a minimum during this high-pressure situation. Spring-loaded doors attached to a pulley system allow you to quickly change directions without causing any pauses in the flow.
With a variety of models and combinations you can choose from, the possibilities are endless for creating a configuration that best suits your operation’s needs. If you need assistance in finding the right solution for your farm, give our Product Specialists a call and we will be happy help you!

Adding the Post-Crush Cattle Drafting Gates after the crush allows you to easily send cattle into different yards. Designed to work with the Q-Catch® 86 Series Cattle Crush, the Drafting Gates allow a single operator to work the draft with one hand and control the yoke gate with the other to regulate flow. For easy access to the cow and passing through the system, the Drafting Gates feature side access doors that swing open to a full 180°.
Arrowquip's Cattle Sorting Races feature spring-loaded doors and pulley ropes to simplify the process of sorting. With an easy tug of a rope, you can guide cattle into your desired direction.

Sort Cattle Your Way
Pre-crush sorting is used to send cattle into multiple directions within a race system. With the Cattle Sorting Races, you can easily create a comprehensive system that leads to different exits such as a crush or yard. In case a cow that does not need to be worked through the crush enters the system, the Cattle Sorting Race provides an easy way for it to exit the line without disrupting flow.
Post-crush drafting is a much safer way to sort a mixed group of cattle into different pens because it does not require you to be in the yard with them. Using the Base Sorting Race together with the Cattle Drafting Gates allows you to manage the flow of livestock easily by running them through an open system and into the post-crush draft. This method keeps cattle stress levels to a minimum, while saving time and effort.
Sorting is a high pressure point in your cattle handling system. For this reason, Arrowquip Cattle Sorting Races feature 1219mm sheet metal, limiting the ability of cattle to see the operator and making for an easier sorting process.
Left or Right-Hand Setup
Cattle Sorting Races can be configured for operation from the left or right-hand side using the same pieces – whatever works best for your operation.
