OUR CATTLE YARD GEAR
Our cattle yard system can be easily modified,
relocated or sold at a later stage.
Quality and customer satisfaction is the focus of M & M Stockyards. When you deal with us you are dealing directly with the manufacturer, not an agent, so our cattle yards can be modified and customized to your specific needs. We will computer draft your cattle yard designs to suit any existing structures and quote on yards to suit you.

Our focus is quality and customer satisfaction
Steel We Use for our Cattle Yards
M & M Stockyards prime stockyard product is all first grade material from the Australian Tube Mills. This material is galvanized on both the inside and the outside of the material and has the highest galvanized coating for this type of steel on the Australian market.
We use 3 different size materials for the rails in our cattle yard panels and gates.
- 50 x 50 x 1.6mm gal square rail (shs)
- 75 x 40 x 1.6mm gal oval rail
- 115 x 42 x 2.0mm gal oval rail (as shown)
Our Cattle Yard Panels
Our standard cattle yard panels are either 2.5m or 3.5m long and 1.7m high. We use three types of panel rail material - 50 x 50 x 1.6mm gal shs (square hollow section), 75 x 40 x 1.6mm gal oval rail or 115 x 42 x 2mm gal oval rail. Both the 50 x 50 and the 75 x 40 cattle yard panels have 6 rails per panel and the 115 x 42 cattle yard panel has 5 rails.
M & M Stockyards can also manufacture cattle yard panels to custom designs and sizes.
50 x 50 Cattle Yard Panel
75 x 40 Cattle Yard Panel
115 x 42 Cattle Yard Panel
M & M Stockyards cattle yard panels are priced complete with our low noise cleating system, our unique joining pins, galvanized post caps, galvanized foot plates, 400mm long - 12mm round foot pins. All inclusive cattle yard panel pricing!
We also offer a cattle yard panel post upgrade. Our standard panel posts are manufactured with gal material that is 1.6mm thick, we offer an upgrade to 2.5mm thick gal material, as this is the part of the cattle yard panel that is sitting on the ground. We have priced this upgrade at a cost of the material only. All of our other components (gate frames etc) come standard with a minimum of 2.5mm thick gal material.
Manufactured by Aussies
We have many other unique features in our full cattle yard designs and individual components
Cattle Yard Panel Joining / Pinning System
M & M Stockyards have recently introduced a new feature to our pinning system that makes setting up the yard components more streamlined. Our zinc plated pinning system consists of 2 "u" shaped cleats that are connected with a unique tapered end solid pin. This system is the same at both the top and the bottom of each end on all our components.
Loading Ramps for Cattle Yards
M & M Stockyards have a cattle yard loading ramp to suit all stockyard systems.
3.0m Gal Steel Floor
3.6m with Timber Floor
5.0m with Timber Floor
Our cattle loading ramps are built to last.
Our most popular cattle loading ramp is our 3.6m loading ramp with a timber floor.
This loading ramp is manufactured with a heavy duty base and front buffer.
The sides of this loading ramp are gal sheeted up 600mm and the rails above the sheet are
115 x 42 x 2mm oval gal material. The timber floor is a lot quieter than a steel floor ramp.
The 3.6m cattle loading ramp can also be fitted with two different styles of walkways on either side of the loading ramp.
M & M Stockyards 5.0m cattle loading ramp is manufactured with a 1.4m flat load out section. The flat load out section has an access door on one side and the loading ramp comes complete with a walkway with a handrail. The walkway and access door can be on either side of the ramp. This ramp is built heavy duty and has the timber floor to reduce noise.
The 3.0m cattle loading ramp is designed to suit the smaller yard systems. It is manufactured in 50 x 50mm gal square material with the sides sheeted 300mm. This loading ramp has a gal sheeted floor with 40 x 40mm square material welded across it for grip and strength.
Adjustable Loading Ramp for Cattle Yards
This ramp is the latest edition to our heavy duty range of loading ramps. The 3.6m adjustable ramp has some stand out features including an easy to operate load brake winch for height adjustment. The standard heavy duty buffer is designed to adjust with the floor height. The unique advantage of this is that when the vehicle backs up to the ramp, there is solid contact. Height settings are from 1200mm (truck height) down to 500mm (box trailer) with 100mm increments. The section of ramp floor which is adjustable is pivoted back 1800mm or approximately halfway along the ramp. Since the gradient is never too extreme this helps with livestock flow when loading or unloading. Inside sheeting of the ramp has been increased to allow for adjustment. Ramp materials consist of 115 x 42mm oval rail, buffer is manufactured using 125 x 75 x 3mm galvanized RHS. Floor consists of 100 x 50mm hardwood timber, these boards, like the standard 3.6m ramp, can also be replaced easily. The features that a lot of adjustable ramps on the market today lack we believe we have addressed. Practicality, durability, safety and strength were all considered when designing and manufacturing the 3.6m heavy duty adjustable loading ramp.
Quality Australian Stockyards
Gates for Cattle Yards
M & M Stockyards manufacture many different styles of gates, with various hinges and catches
Double Hinge Gates and Frames -
this gate is our most popular type of gate. It has a unique hinging system that allows the gate to swing freely through the frame in both directions, practically 360 degrees. This type of hinging system also allows the gate to lay flush on the panel it is connected to, out of the way of stock and handlers.
Single Hinge Gates and Frames -
will open 90 degrees in both directions or the gate can be manufactured to hit up on the frame and swing one direction 180 degrees.
Chain Catch -
In our chain catch system we use 14mm round bar with a reinforced spacer system so the chain is secure but can be easily released. We use this catch on the majority of our gates because it is fast and it has no protruding parts like a bolt system can have. Also, a gate with a chain catch can be secured even if it is not quite shut.
Single Hinge Gates with Spring Slam Catches -
This gate is manufactured in a heavy duty frame that has corner bracing to ensure the slam catch is supported. We have two different styles of slam catch gates. The positioning of the gate within a yard, will dictate which gate is suitable.
Slide Gates -
This fully reversible gate is built using heavy duty materials with 115 x 42 rails in the gate. The gate has a pull shut mechanism so you do not have to reach through the frame to shut the gate.
Double Hinge Lock Up Gates -
are included in all our designs with a drafting pound. This gate will swing through the frame or the operator can engage our unique locking mechanism and convert the gate to hit up on either side of the frame. This gate is a very handy gate to have in a drafting situation.
Designed and built in Australia, for Australian conditions
3 or 4 Way Drafting Gates -
These gates can be included in the race section and are either 2 or 3 gates connected overhead. The gate hinges have tension adjustments to tighten the hinge to hold the gate in the desired position. The gates are hinged on a heavy-duty frame and come complete with two heavy-duty drop bolts. Each gate has a section of poly belting that will swing past the head of the beast in the crush.
Forward Operation Manual Drafter -
The Forward Operation Manual Drafter has been manufactured to draft cattle quickly and efficiently without the operator leaving the crush to select the direction of the animal.
The drafting gates are controlled by a remote handle that extends to the operational position of the crush. This allows the operator to remain at the crush whilst opening the required gate. The selected gate automatically returns with the release of the handle.
Two access gates are positioned forward of the drafting gates to provide an unimpeded workspace at the head of the animal.
Many of our cattle yard designs can incorporate a 3 or 4 way drafting section
Force Yard Reduction Gates -
This gate section is manufactured in a heavy duty frame. The gate has a spring slam catch that locks in two positions to reduce the size of the force yard.
Cattle Crushes -
Our stockyard systems can incorporate the majority of cattle crushes from any national supplier.
Weighing Systems -
Our cattle yard designs can incorporate any stockyard weighing system. We are a national agent for Ruddweigh Weighing Systems supplied by Gallagher Australia.
Delivery and Installation -
M & M Stockyards can deliver and install your new cattle yard system. This is done by one of our fully trained staff members, with your assistance. We have our own truck and trailer fitted with a crane to make unloading on-site no problem.
