Common Uses
  • Lambing/kidding jugs
  • Sick pens
  • Shearing pens
  • Short-term field gates
  • Portable handling yards
  • To divide larger pens
We designed the original PrimaGate for use in our own 100-pen lambing barn. Two years later, the gates look as new as the day they were installed. Our shepherds use them daily and know their strengths and weaknesses. So we asked how to make them better?
  1. Shorter in height—to ease reaching in and climbing over
  2. Less space between horizontals—to prevent escape
  3. Less expensive to ship—our customers liked the gates, but disliked the shipping costs
The result is PrimaGate 2. It’s a unique modular gate (assemble to suit) that is as sturdy as the original one-piece design.
  • Modular design—Unique interlocking panel system allows you to create gates that are 4 ft, 6 ft, 8 ft and even 10 ft in length.
  • Reduced shipping costs—2 ft sections can be shipped by UPS/SpeeDee. Orders over $100 ship FREE within the contiguous USA.
  • Shorter height—36" height (vs 41" on original design). It’s now much easier to climb and reach over.
  • Horizontal supports are closer together to better contain lambs and goat kids.
The lightweight PrimaGate 2 arrives as a pair of 2 ft wide end pieces (to make a 4 ft panel). Center sections can be added to extend the panels in 2 ft increments.

Universal Connecting Hinge
Customers love our PrimaGates, but they have been asking for a better way to make 3-way and 4-way panel connections. We’ve also been asked for a hinge connector that would allow folks to connect PrimaGates with a Creep Feeder Gate, or other livestock handling equipment.
We’ve think we’ve made a better hinge and can’t wait to share it with you!
