Crushes & Head Bales

Durable, Adaptable and Proven Performance

A short history……. Marvin Priefert, a Nebraskan corn farmer, took up a cattle ranch in Texas in 1962. After seeing his neighbour work cattle with a guillotine-style Head bale, which would often let the cattle get choked down, Marvin knew there had to be a "better way" and he began working on a head bale prototype. In 1964, Marvin Priefert invented the first gliding-action, fully-opening Head bale. This Head bale design featured two gate yokes that would slide open when the operator lifted the lever, allowing the animal's head to pass through the opening. The operator then pulled the lever down to slide the two yokes of the Head bale back into place, closing securely onto both sides of the animal's neck. Confident in this design, Marvin built a second one of these head bales for his neighbour. He went on to patent this invention as he had many others, but this time, he took it a step further and decided to manufacture and sell the item himself. Here began Priefert Manufacturing and the start of world changing cattle handling innovation.

Automatic / Manual Head Bales

Arguably the very best head bale on the market, Priefert's Model 91 is the only head bale that works effectively both in Manual and Self-Catch mode The Model 91 makes it easy to run lots of cattle on Manual or catch that sick cow or two when you are by yourself with no one else to run her up the race to the chute.

Infinite locks (GUARANTEED FOR LIFE) eliminate the need for pre-sorting the herd as cow, calf or bull can be caught one behind the other without pre-setting a different locking width. There's no need to block the next cow in line as with its scissor action full-length opening; as one cow exits, another can be caught right off her tail. For an outstanding value, don't settle for less than Priefert's Model 91 Auto / Manual head bale.
