IAE…..very easy to lift about😂
Everything seems to be lighter and cheaper made nowadays to save on build costs, the first cattle hurdles needed two people to lift them and couldnt be bent or bowed unlike the latest ones. IAE seem to have gone to sleep during covid and have let ritchie takeover . Everybody seems to stock Ritchie products now

Does anyone make cattle hurdles with small bars at the bottom to hold sheep/lambs as well. We have Ritchie cattle hurdles here which hold ewes but no use for lambs.
We use alloy cattle hurdles an turn them upside down.woudnt be any good for small lambs but fine for fat lambs/ewes.

I’ve just sold some on here to a forum member with extra bars in the bottom

IAE a lot better than Ritchie in my opinion neighbour has Ritchie I hate them. Quality might be ok on Ritchie but such a pain that a pin cannot be left in the eyes without dragging on floor, you have to put the pin in box section when hurdles not together whereas with IAE the top eye is high enough that pins can be stored in hurdles all the time for example when carrying.

I have a set of IAE. They are fine, if a little cheaply made. I also have a set made by GST fabrications (Google them). These hurdles are so superior to IAE that its laughable. They were cheaper than the IAE's too.

I've had 8 IAE hurdles for about 6 years, still in good shape, ideal for making mobile pens as I can carry them by myself. Stack them on top of tractor bucket tied on arms with string. Crush on the back. Makes job easy.
