Modular aluminum gates customized to suit your livestock application. Portable, lightweight panels are perfect for lambing pens, field gates and lanes.
Improved in 5 key areas…
- 2 ft modular design system. Cuts shipping costs. You can receive a 10 ft gate kit by UPS/SpeeDee. Orders over $100 ship FREE within the contiguous USA.
- 36" height (vs 41" on original design). Much easier to climb and reach over.
- Horizontal supports are closer together to better contain lambs and goat kids.
- 360º Hinge reduces bulk by allowing panels to fold flat.
- Universal Connecting Hinge connects panels together to form pens, or to attach other livestock handling equipment.
- PrimaGate™ 2 (Item #913701)
- Complete 4 ft gate includes: (1) left and (1) right end panel, (2) joining dowels, (4) bolts and (1) connecting pin.
- PrimaGate™ 2 Extension (Item #913711)
- Includes: (1) 2 ft center panel, (2) joining dowels and (4) bolts.
- Connect several gates together for long, adjustable mobile barriers.
- When used with the 360° Hinge, assembled panels will “accordion” or fold flat for convenient storage or transport.
- The Universal Connecting Hinge enables panels to fold flat for storage or transport.
- Lightweight. Half the weight of comparable steel bar gates/panels.
- Heavy duty. Assembled gates are as sturdy as our original one-piece design.
- Vertical top bars discourage jumping and reduce risk of animal injury.
- 36" height, tall enough to contain small ruminants, short enough for the shepherd to comfortably work over.
- Redesigned animal-resistant pin connections. (Pins no longer "pop-out" unexpectedly.)
- Won’t rust. Aluminum always looks new.
- Ships in 2 ft sections, to save $$ on shipping. Orders over $100 ship FREE within the contiguous USA.
- 36" tall
- Interlocking tongue-in-groove panels (24"W x 36"H) can be assembled together to create 4', 6', 8' and 10' gates
- Horizontal spacings: 2.75", 3", 3.5", and 4" (from bottom to top)

How to Assemble
- Remove black end caps. (A hammer/mallet and blunt chisel/screwdriver may be required to drive them out.) Place panels welded side up. Insert connectors in one of the panels. The bolt holes in the connector are offset, so make sure the holes are up when inserting. Partially thread the bolt into the connector through the slotted hole in the panel. Repeat this on the other end of panel.
- Insert the attached connectors into the remaining half of the gate, making sure that it is oriented properly.
- Squeeze the two panels together. Note: The two panels have a tongue and groove feature and they must interconnect. Thread and tighten all bolts.

We designed the original PrimaGate in 2017 for use in our own 100-pen lambing barn. A year later, the gates look as new as the day they were installed. But our shepherds asked for several improvements: 1) Shorter in height—to ease reaching in and climbing over, and 2) Less space between horizontals—to prevent escape.
Our customers liked the gates, but disliked the shipping costs.
So we set out to solve both problems. The result is PrimaGate 2. It’s a unique modular gate (assemble to suit) that is as sturdy as the original one-piece design.

Excellent customer service when ordering by phone. I was very pleased that the PrimaGate arrived 4 days before ETA. It is super easy to assemble and sturdy; perfect for temporarily penning up a new momma ewe with lambs.

I have purchased 10 gates, extension panels and pins to use for kidding. I can put these together, set up pens, and tear down with out a second person. This year our goat project 4-H kids had raised enough money thru bake sales and a Feed-A-Farmer day to purchase 7 gate and extension panels to use at our county fair. One of the extension panels was damaged upon opening the box. I contacted the company, was told to send a couple of photos of the damage and now the extension is on it’s way! A wonderful company to work with. Our kids will continue to raise money to purchase more pens!

Awesome item. If anything it’s over-engineered as I am used to the sheep hurdles in the UK but cannot find them here. These are easy to use and light, so will be buying more for new lamb pens.

Great gates, easy to put together. We are using several with the extenders and universal joints to make a lambing jug. We will also likely use them during shearing. I like that they can be reconfigured easily. Quick service and a good product!
