DLS highly recommends headlocks to be used for feed fronts for cow comfort and ease of work on the farmer. DLS does, however, offer other options for producers looking for different alternatives. The Feed Rail can be used for both heifers and cows. It’s a simple 2 3/8″ pipe with a 3/16″ wall that can be mounted to the Jourdain octopost or a structural post with the Jourdain feed rail bracket. The angled feed front is another option that is most commonly used for heifers and calves. This uses a 2 3/8″ pipe with a 1/8″ wall. There are both fixed and adjustable headspace options with the angled feed fronts. Both the Feed Rail and Angled Feed Front are durable and hot-dip galvanized.
