Australian National Field Days (ANFD) – Wrap Up

Chris and Nathan are back on deck in the office today after attending the Australian National Field Days (ANFD) in Borenore (15 klm west of Orange NSW) last Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

They achieved really good sales over the 3 days and delivered and set-up the display cattle yards from the ANFD site to a happy customer on Sunday. We would like to thank the customers that purchased the yards and other gear at the field days and we hope we can help those who showed interest in our products in the future.

We would also like to thank the very friendly volunteers and staff of the Australian National Field Days for their hard work and dedication to running a very professional and well organised event. If you couldn’t make it this year, make sure to put the ANFD on your calendar for next year. Field days like this help manufacturers, retailers, primary producers and government organisations showcase their products and share information and it is the ideal location for you to compare the product quality and customer service of those in attendance.

At M & M Stockyards we pride ourselves on manufacturing quality products and providing excellent customer service and remember when you purchase from M & M Stockyards, you are supporting a family owned and operated Australian manufacturer that employs locals in the rural community of Manilla, NSW.

Well it’s the final day of Agquip 2019 but there is still time to check out our quality Australian made stockyards on our site wx21-23.

On site we have a complete 180 head cattle yard system, a complete 340 head sheep yard system, cattle crushes, our 5.0m and 3.6m heavy duty timber floor loading ramps, our unique heavy duty 3.6m adjustable loading ramp and our 3.0m loading ramp. We also have our curved ratcheting cattle yard safety force and our very popular hay and trough feeders on display.

Our focus is on manufacturing quality products and providing high level customer service.

Cattle yard questions?

Just some of the cattle yard questions we will ask

When you deal with M & M Stockyards you are dealing directly with the manufacturer.  You will soon discover that M & M Stockyards are not the average cattle and sheep yard manufacturer, we take the time to ask the relevant questions to ensure your stockyards are what you need and not just a combination of panels and gates. We pride ourselves on providing impeccable customer service from drafting your custom design to delivery and set-up on-site. Below are just some of the points or questions our friendly staff will cover before preparing your custom design cattle yard plan or quote:-

Material:  What rail material would you like your cattle yards manufactured in 50 x 50 rhs, 75 x 40 oval rail or 115 x 42 oval rail?

Heavy Posts:  We have an upgrade to our panel posts available, our standard posts are 1.6mm thick.  Would you like to upgrade this material to 2.5mm thick?

Cattle Crush:  What type of crush would you like to include in your new cattle yard system?

Weighing System:  Are you going to be weighing in the cattle yard system?  We may need to modify the design to accommodate for weighing.

Cattle Loading Ramp:  We have a range of cattle loading ramps which one would you like included?  

Calf Race and Cradle:  Do you want a separate calf race in your cattle yards? Do you need a new calf cradle?

Race Walkway:  Our cattle races can be fitted with a raised man walkway would you like to include a cattle race walkway?

Extra Slide Gate in the race:  Do you want a slide gate in the cattle race one section back from the crush?

Side Loading Trucks:  Do you need to side load your cattle trucks? We may need to modify the cattle yard system to accommodate this.

Slam catch on the rear of the force:  Would you like us to put a slam catch gate on the rear of your force section?  When we do this we upgrade the frame on the gate to a heavy duty frame.  Depending on the design of the yards, we have a few different ways of manufacturing these.

3-Way Drafting Section:  Some of our designs allow for a 3 way drafting section to be placed in front of the crush.  Would you like to include this?

Force Yard Reduction Gate Section:  This gate reduces the size of your force yard would you like this included?

Delivery and Set-up:  We have our own truck fitted with a HIAB crane that allows us to deliver your yards to the site where you need them and we will stay and help you set up your yards if you would like us to.

And finally:  How did you hear about us?  Are you a repeat customer? or did you see us on the Internet? At Ag-quip Field Days? on a Roadside Sign? or did one of our other wonderful customers recommend us?

M & M Stockyards are not just selling cattle yard panels and gates we take the time to discuss your particular needs and customise our cattle yards to suit you.
