The new Q-Catch 87 Series Mobile Crush and Race gives you consistently safe and efficient cattle handling no matter where you're working cattle. From the new electric jacks and 8' Easy Flow Adjustable Cattle Race section, to the rubber floors you've been asking for, everything on this system has been designed with cattle flow and ease of use for farmers in mind. With the new 3E yoke gate design and Easy Flow Race removable panels, you can utilize natural cattle behaviour to keep your herd flowing in the right direction.

You can do it all with this portable duo, and take your mobile cattle crush anywhere you need it with ease. This compact system has been redesigned with an improved towing setup to ensure you're in for the smoothest ride possible, every time.

Government TB Testing Regulations

As per the Government of UK website’s tuberculosis testing guidelines, your testing and handling facilities must:

Allow safe movement of cattle;
Include a suitable handling system (such as a crush and penning system linked by a secure race);
Make it easy for inspectors to restrain and examine cattle, clip their hair, measure the skin with calipers, and give them injections;
Be in good working order;
Be suitable for the size and breed of cattle that have to be tested; and
Be well-lit so inspectors can read ear tags and carry out the test.
We have been actively AI'ing cows and have also just did our spring work of cows, calves, and bulls through our Arrowquip crush and raceway. I have to say it was done effortlessly and the most efficiently that we have done in years.

A Mobile Crush and Race that Simplifies TB Testing

The Q-Catch 87 Series mobile crush is an ideal solution for TB testing, offering excellent access to the neck of the animal. The 324mm TB access area right at the front of the crush allows your vet or testing personnel can easily access the neck of your cattle to complete SICCT testing. This access to the neck is available on both sides of the crush, ensuring that you can complete testing quickly and effectively. An added bonus with the Q-Catch is that it is a low-stress environment for your livestock, so handling them regularly will not cause unnecessary stress.

    Interested in the difference between q -87 and q74 series

    • 0 Arrowquip Team

      Hi Todd, here is a video showing the differences between the Q-Catch 87 Series and the 74 Series!

  • 5 Bill Webb

    The Q-87 portable chute and alley is one of my best purchases in some time. We have found it to be the safest way to vaccinate any and all of our beef animals from calves to bulls. When they enter the alley and are weighed they remain calm going thru the chute and are restrained for shots and wormer application. It has given us as well as the cattle a far superior sense of safety than what we were used to. Really are satisfied with this purchase !

    I am really pleased with my new portable Q 87 cattle chute and alley. It makes working the cows, calves and bulls much easier as well as much safer. I have been maintaining this herd since 1984 and this is my first chute of any kind. The cattle move through and stay calm from entry til exit. Also I have the Gallagher herd management and weigh system. This combination is really a great system. This past Saturday we ran them all through for vaccinations, weighing and wormer application and it was another enjoyable experience using this setup. Thank You Arrowquip !!!
