The EZ Rise Cattle Guard has been successfully used on horse farms and cattle ranches since the early 1990s. There are many different locations and applications that these guards are effective. Setting one in the entrance to a hay barn or hay stack keeps the cows from following the tractor into the hay lot. The relocation application also makes it very effective for leased pastures, rotational grazing and seasonal grazing such as winter wheat pastures and temporary electric fences. The ability of heavy machinery and equipment to safely drive over the unit makes it very attractive for the oil/gas field, wind energy locations and construction sites. Locations that are on hills or slopes allow our cattle guard to be used without the risk of soil erosion from the pit washing out during periods of wet weather.
