Herding Gates

How to make gates that work for herding cattle

Every farmer knows that livestock will go through any open gate anywhere on the farm, unless you want them too.

If you are planning out a new property or just looking at some new fences to make your paddocks easier to control, consider your gate locations as a part of the initial design.

Placing your gates in a corner wherever possible gives you more options when you are herding your livestock as the animals will instinctively corral into a corner before they trample headlong toward and open gate in the middle of a fence line.
