Cattle Sorting Poles and Paddles
Sorting poles are one of the most essential tools used in sorting and controlling ranch livestock.
Ranchers know that a key element of controlling livestock is communicating with them through means they understand. Animal behaviorists like Temple Grandin have emphasized the importance of coaxing cattle to cooperate through means that do not cause them to injure themselves. Lower-stress environments also reduce worker injury and prevent stress-related production decreases.
U.S. Whip prides itself on offering some of the toughest sorting poles available on the market. Whether you need a heavy duty, medium or a lightweight sorting pole, we have the right pole for the hardworking cattleman.
One of those ways to communicate with livestock, of course, is touch. Sorting poles allow you to have quick contact with an animal without causing pain or triggering a fear or startle reflex. You can effectively direct your cattle into squeeze chutes, alleyways, and pens with the right sorting pole.
The popular Rattle Paddle has been proven to be one of the most useful tools for working cattle. The rattle of the BB’s inside the paddle head makes this a great tool for sorting cattle.
