Adjustable Easy Flow Cattle Race
Arrowquip’s improved Easy Flow® Adjustable Cattle Races are designed to be safer, quieter, and more efficient. Cradle-shaped and fully adjustable, the Easy Flow Races can accommodate cattle of any size with easy adjustments. With spring-loaded locking systems and safety latches, you can quickly modify the width of the race from one side by simply pulling on the adjustment cables. Adhering to low-stress cattle handling principles, the Easy Flow Races have caulked flat sheeting and nylon bushings over the slam-latch pins to reduce noise. Additionally, the race sections bolt tightly together to eliminate the need for pins.
The Easy Flow Races now come with the 3E: Easy Entry and Exit System with the NEW removable panels. Cattle only see what you want them to see in the Easy Flow Races. By modifying the panel sides to your preference, pressure zone handling techniques can be applied to regulate flow with ease. For further customisation and control, rolling race gates and kicker panels can also be added to create the race system of your dreams. There are infinite configurations possible to suit your needs.
With easy adjustments, excellent animal control, and the utmost in animal safety, the Adjustable Easy Flow Races are designed to provide increased efficiency in your complete cattle handling system.

The cradle on the Easy Flow Race is fully adjustable from 750mm to 458mm, giving you the ability to accommodate animals of any size and keep them from turning back. You can easily change the settings of both sides of the race from one side by pulling on the adjustment cables connected to the spring-loaded cam-slam latches. For added security, the adjustable sides include safety latches to ensure they do not drop down unintentionally.
You can now customise what cattle see in the Easy Flow Race with the removable panels. Adjusting the sheeting height to your preference allows you to apply point of balance handling techniques effectively to regulate the flow of cattle. The standard Easy Flow Race comes with two removable panels and extra panels are available, if needed. For easy storage, the removable panels bolt onto the sides of the race when not in use.
Integrated Cattle Race Scales
Arrowquip’s NEW Cattle Weigh Crate can be integrated within your complete cattle handling system at any point to provide fast and accurate weigh-ins while keeping livestock flowing efficiently through the alley. 8’ Easy Flow Cattle Race Sections can be fitted with an aluminium cattle weigh platform, giving you the option to integrate a weigh crate within your race system seamlessly.
While other Cattle Weigh Crates have straight sides, limited adjustments, and can be a point where calves may turn around, a consistent cradle-shaped race that narrows to the centre ensures that there is no point in your handling system where livestock can turn back. The adjustable sides range from 750mm to 458mm to accommodate cattle of any size, and the adjustable 3E Panels allow you to control what cattle see while in the alley to minimize stress.
Simply add the conversion kit that features an cattle weigh platform and rolling alley gates to your assembled Easy Flow to create a Cattle Race Scale Section to your alley system. The heavy-duty aluminium cattle weigh platform features stamped 1/4” aluminium plate for proper cattle traction in the cattle weigh crate, and can be placed at any point within your race system for convenience.
Easy Flow with the 3E System
With the customisable removable panels, you can control what cattle see in the race. This allows you to use light to your advantage together with point of balance handling techniques to regulate cattle flow. When handling small calves, you are able to control their movement easily by using low sheeting on the working side. Additionally, the Easy Flow Race features a lowered bottom bar on both ends which reduces foot traps when entering and exiting the race.
Better Cattle Flow With S-Flow
An S-Flow System generates constant flow of cattle by incorporating arcs into full handling systems. S-Flow is best applied when handling large groups of cattle for drafting or loading into a trailer. Based on cattle’s instinct to follow curves, consistent movement can be maintained as they are repeatedly convinced that they are escaping. You can create a curved system with the Easy Flow Cattle Races by adding kicker panels, and connecting a 3E Budflow® Forcing Pen to create the draw required for crowd movement.
The Easy Flow Races are designed with quiet features all around to improve cattle movement, such as caulking on sheet metal and nylon bushings over the slam-latch pins. By bolting the Easy Flow Races together, pin rattling is eliminated to keep stress levels at a minimum, and allow cattle to flow calmly through the race system.
Mix and match 8’ and 10’ sections together with the optional rolling race gates and kicker panels to create the race system of your dreams! With durable panel clips available, you can also attach the Easy Flow Race to the rest of your cattle handling system.
