Mobile Cattle Yards (pages 15-18)


Mobile Sheep Yards • This unit can be easily transported, assembled and operated, by one person. • The yard is versatile and can be taken anywhere on the farm for on-the-spot drenching, crutching, mouthing, tagging, docking and fly strike and any general animal treatment. • The mobile unit allows the operator to utilise the direction of sunlight and wind to ensure a natural stock flow through the yard. • This gives practical results such as faster animal flow, saved time and travel, reduced fuel and labour costs, lower risk of infection from dusty tracks, less stress on the animal etc, therefore maximising farm management.


Sheep numbers stated are based on average New Zealand sheep with light wool. Specifications, parts and model designs may change at any time due to further development.

Rappa Fencing STANDARD RAPPA The first model in the Rappa family. All of the ease, speed and functionality of our larger Rapper machines, but man powered rather than horse-powered. Designed to carry a supply of stakes, and work with polywire, steel wire and polytape, and maintains even wire tension using the same patented slip clutch mechanism. Ideal for smaller users and shorter fence runs.

ATV RAPPA The ATV Rappa makes light work of day to day fencing tasks. Designed to tackle the toughest terrain and most challenging fencing jobs, it attaches easily to your ATV, where it is powered directly from the back tyre. The new model is now ergonomically designed for easier handling, and has sealed bearings for a longer life and less servicing, making it a true workhorse for electric fencing.

DAIRY ATV RAPPA A smaller, lighter, more streamlined version of our standard ATV Rappa, designed for controlling cattle with a singleline fence. Leave the mounting frame fixed to your ATV rear carrier, and you can detach or re-attach the Rappa in seconds.
