A lot of work around the ranch is done with ATV’s these days. From fencing repairs to rounding up for health checks, the machine is incredibility useful in almost any pasture.
This cattle guard is built specifically to accommodate the traffic without using a gate. We’ve even made them for golf carts to cross through fenced in lands!
The picture above shows how simple and straight forward the overall design is. The structural integrity is extremely solid with 1-1/2″ square tubing. The 11 gauge steel is finished in a gray enamel.
The ramp is 14″ in height and won’t allow all ATV:s to cross. The larger 4-seat version require a slight modification to prevent bottoming out. We lower the height a bit and extend the overall length for the longer wheel base.
The design for the 2-seat versions is 91″ long and 72″ wide and with the ‘wings’, measures 87″.
The guard is extremely easy to put in use. It is a free-standing structure and as long as the ground is fairly flat, it can be set in place for immediate use.
Identify the area in the fencing where you’d like to be able drive your ATV through. Make a cut in the center of the area and pull the fencing back. This makes it easier to prepare the ground once the fence is out of the way.
It’s important to make sure your installation area is fairly flat to help prevent the crossing from moving when driving over. We’d recommend adding crushed gravel to assist with drainage if there’s a lot of moisture in the area. A buried railroad tie can also help prevent movement and provide a secure anchoring point.
Once the surface is prepared, simply set the one-piece cattle guard in place and tie your fencing right to the uprights of the crossing.
Also consider applying a grass killer or weed block under the guard. This will prevent it from becoming overgrown and hiding it from your livestock. You want to keep the rails of the guard prevalent so cattle don’t ‘accidentally’ walk onto it.
Square tubing – 1-1/2″ x 11 gauge
Overall dimensions: 72″ wide (87″ exterior) X 91″ long
The center of the ramp is 14″ in height
Finished in gray enamel

Cattle guards can provide years of effortless livestock containment without the need for gates. You no longer have to stop, open a gate while fending off cows only to pull forward and repeat the process again. They allow an effortless crossing for vehicles while creating a secure livestock barrier for your animals.
A Traditional Concrete Foundation Is Not Always Needed
One of the criticisms of getting a guard is the time and labor associated with an installation. To make things much easier for driveways and use on private property, there are now three different designs that don’t require a concrete foundation!
These new designs don’t require the digging and the pouring of cement foundations seen with traditional installations. They are built to be quickly and easily added by setting directly on the ground.
Below are the new removable box and integral box designs made to make installation quick and easy
Setting these cattle crossings directly on the ground is the easiest installation option available. This type of setting requires a specially designed feature called a box.
The box is a steel skirt that surrounds the perimeter to prevent dirt from entering below the guard. It’s important to keep the area below the top rails clear of dirt and debris so animals can’t walk across. If the vaulted area did fill with dirt, it would fill in the areas between the rails creating a bridge that would allow animals to simply walk across.
Keeping the area below and in between the rails clear is necessary for an effective barrier.
There are two designs for cattle guards that are built to set directly on the ground: Welded and Removable Boxes
Welded Box Cattle Guards
The box on this design is created by welding a steel skirt directly to the perimeter of a traditional cattle grid. This allows it to be set right on the roadway without digging a traditional foundation. The area beneath the top rails is preserved from dirt ‘creeping in’ by the box.
Picture of a Boxed Cattle Guard
Note that the box does not provide any additional structural support, it only keeps dirt from getting in below the top rails.
Some will bury the guard to match the height of the roadway. Others will simply lay it down and push dirt ramps up on either side for crossing vehicles. Either of these installations will allow vehicles access to cross over the structure.
This design is very popular for low traffic areas such as driveways and remote areas that don’t require a traditional concrete foundation. Construction sites also find them useful as they can be moved from job-to-job.
If the guard does need to be cleaned out, you may drag it out of place, remove the accumulated debris and move it back in place. Easy to maintain, keep clean and even move to another location if desired.
Another unique design that doesn’t require a concrete foundation is the removable box option. Like the boxed option above, this one is built to rest directly on the roadway.
The removable feature means you can take the guard out of the box without disturbing the surrounding site. See the picture below and note how the site would be preserved even if the guard is removed.
Removable Box Cattle Guard
The most common installation for this design is to slightly bury the box in the ground and set the guard inside. The box preserves the surrounding area when you lift the grid to clean and remove debris below. Set the guard back in the box when done with minimal disruption.
The box options are available on all the round top rail grids, from the 8’er all the way up to the 20′ Cattle Guards.
Foundations without Cement
Make sure you foundation will provide the support and security needed for a long-lasting installation. If your site isn’t exactly level or your require additional security to keep the guard in place, there are a couple of options available.
Pouring cement is not the only available option for securing a foundation. Simply burying a set of railroad ties and securing the guard to them can solve many ‘walking’ issues.
When vehicles cross the steel grid, they can impart lateral forces across the barrier. This repeated force and promote movement in the structure. This is especially true if your site isn’t perfectly level.
Bolting your guard to buried ties creates a wider foot-print for the transfer of weight from the rails to the ground. It also creates a more stable setting that protects from lateral movement.
As with any construction, your structure is only as secure as your foundation. When selecting your site, it’s important to provide proper drainage to prevent sinking or moving.
Avoid drainage issues by setting the guard on a bed of crushed gravel. The gravel allows the water to pass through to the ground beneath with minimal disruption to the surround supporting soil.
As with any building, a contractor who is familiar with the site and local conditions (drainage, freezing levels and even local building codes etc) should be consulted for a long-lasting installation.
If you have any questions on selecting a guard for your project please let us know. We’d also be happy to forward a quote with shipping for your review!
Not everyone needs a high-capacity grain bin. A lot of people have small amounts of feed they need to store, dispense and manage and don’t need a giant bin hulking on their property. They just want something they can use to feed with buckets and not motorized augers.
For this purpose, much smaller and more manageable feed bins are desired.
Small Feed Bins
These great little bins will dispense almost any loose material. They are popular for storing heating pellets, bulk seed, corn, and yes of course grain.
These bands are sealed tight to keep out bugs and moisture. The poly material contains a UV inhibitor and it’s designed to be used Outdoors year-round the large slide valve is big enough for range cubes and enlarger granules. Simply pull the steel handle and the plate slides open and allows you to control the flow of grain into a bucket. A paragraph please note that an auger is not available with this Bend, 4 lower volume use. The roof and lid are both made of polyethylene well the walls are made from galvanized steel. The large lid locks down so it won’t blow up and prevents any rain or moisture from entering the bin.
These bins are very easy to install. To keep shipping costs low, they ship unassembled and only require minimal skills to put together. Here is a diagram of the larger 65-bushel bin fully assembled.
To get a sense of how it’s done, click on one of the assembly manuals below:
The bins allow large-size materials to pass through the manual slide valve at the bottom. This works great for managing all types of materials, not just animal feed.
A lot of homes burn pellets for heat. This includes corn and pellets designed specifically for burning in a stove. When using this system a method of storing and dispensing is made easy with the small feed bin.
It keeps the pellets or corn dry and protected from moisture and allows for manual dispensing to a bucket set under the bin.
The mini-feed bin is great for filling buckets and feeding animals by hand. It’ll also dispense range cubes as large as 3/4″ round by 2″ long. The large locking lid opens very wide for easy filling and its smaller size makes it very manageable.
There are two different available sizes. Each bin is 5′ in diameter and the extra capacity is created by adding a second steel ring wall section. The diameter remains the same but it adds 2′ to the overall height
As mentioned above, the bins ship unassembled on a pallet to keep shipping costs low. We can ship them around the country and if you’d like a quote with delivery right to your door, just let us know and we’ll forward one for your review.
Grain bins provide efficient efficient management and storage for all types of feed and other loose materials. The heavy-duty construction protects the elements in rodents alike.
These are high-capacity bins that are commonly found throughout the United States. They offer large storage capacities and heavy-duty construction for use almost anywhere.
Barn World has a large selection of both metal grain bins and poly in a variety of sizes. Whether you need 108-bushel capacity or 975, there is one for you!
Metal Bulk Feed Bin Design
These heavy-duty steel grain bins are built to hold High capacities of loose material outdoors year-round. It stores and protects from the elements, pests, and rodents alike.
Below is a partial diagram of an assembled bin for review. Note the steel wall seams have overlap drip guards and won’t let water into the bin. This design culminates in a 16″ diameter opening at the bottom of the hopper sections.
This allows a multitude of attachments such as manual slide valves and motorized augers for unloading.
The waving bends in the steel walls are there to create additional vertical strength. The walls have a 4″ wide corrugation that adds an estimated 25% increase in strength over a wall without corrugation. The corrugation also creates a release point for free-flowing. The waves of the Steal reduce the downward resistance on stored material and help reduce any bridging or ‘hanging up on the interior of the walls.
The G-90 Steel
G-90 is a designation for the finish that coats the steel. It refers to the amount of zinc that remains on the material after a hot dip in zinc. The 90 means that there is a minimum of .90 oz. of zinc per square foot. This provides excellent protection from corrosion and rust and allows the bins to be used exclusively outdoors, year-round.
Top lid that can be controlled while standing on the ground via a lever. Simply pull the lever, and it opens can you fill the bin without ever leaving the ground.
The lids have a vent built into them to release hot air and moisture that may build up inside.
The bins are built by assembling them on their sides and then standing upright. A cement pad is used to anchor the legs to the ground to prevent tipping in high winds when empty.
