As you know, a cattle grid is designed to keep your livestock from wandering away from your property. They also work to keep your cattle safe. They can be made from a variety of materials, but concrete cattle grids have a unique set of benefits that you’re going to love.
At Graham’s Precast Concrete Products, we make top quality concrete cattle grids that are ideal for agricultural purposes. Here’s why you should choose them over other types of cattle grids.
Unlike painted or metal cattle grids, concrete can withstand wet conditions without corroding or rusting. So even when it rains, your cattle grid will stay in good shape and perform the job it’s meant to do.
Metal grids need to be replaced more often because wet weather wears them out until they don’t work anymore. If your grid is painted on, moisture can wash away the paint and you’ll have to repaint them.
Livestock is heavy so you need a cattle grid that can stand up to being walked on by cattle. The strength of a concrete cattle grid means repeated daily use without worrying about cracks or other damage.
With metal, your heavy animals may cause it to bend or crack, which will require repairs or replacements. This isn’t the case with concrete, which won’t break due to heavy livestock.
Many cattle grids are used to prevent animals from crossing the roads that border your property. A concrete cattle grid is safe for vehicles to drive over, allowing you to continue using the road for more than one purpose.
You’ll be keeping your cattle where you want them and can still move around your property with ease without concern that the grid will damage your tyres, wheels, or undercarriage of your vehicle.
As you may have gathered, concrete cattle grids are much more low maintenance than painted or metal ones. Because they hold up to weather, livestock and vehicle traffic, your concrete cattle grid will stay in top working condition for many years without a lot of repair or attention.
This frees you up to focus on other important tasks while still having a functional grid on your property.
Now that you know the great benefits, we think you’ll love and appreciate concrete cattle grids as much as we do. Contact us at Graham’s Precast Concrete Products for further assistance or to place an order.
