Friday Feature: The Ride Over Gate

Friday Feature: The Ride Over Gate

Every livestock producer has daydreamed about automatic gates to make travel around ranches faster and easier.  But, it is too expensive to provide power and hydraulic cylinders for each pasture gate.  This week’s featured video was produced by the Wrangler Company in New Zealand to introduce their Ride Over GateThe ride over gate is a small, spring loaded gate that allows four wheelers, utility vehicles, and center pivot irrigation wheels to pass through fences to access pastures without ever having to stop to open and close the gate, with no electricity needed.  With their gate system, checking livestock on a utility vehicle can be much more convenient.

Featured Video: Quick Brace Cable System for Fence H-Braces

This week’s featured video was produced by Kencove Farm Fence Supplies to demonstrate the Quick Brace cable system for fence H-braces.  If you have ever been aggravated twisting multiple wraps of wire to tighten braces, there is a new product that makes this process very quick, easy, and aesthetically pleasing.  Mark Mauldin (Washington County) and I saw this product demonstrated at a University of Georgia Fencing Field Day this week and felt it was worth sharing.  Pretty cool concept.  This might even be something you could make yourself at a reduced cost.
