Sheep Loading Ramps

ProWay have designed a range of sheep loading ramps that are regarded by livestock carriers as the best available. If you ask a livestock carrier he can tell you why ProWay sheep loading ramps work so well and why other ramps do not.

ProWay have worked with The Livestock Transport Association of Victoria in developing approved saleyard loading ramp designs.

Contact us to discuss your loading ramp requirements as we have a range of mobile and permanent options.

Points to Consider….When Purchasing a Sheep Loading Ramp
  • An 8m sheep loading ramp is required to reach the third deck.
  • 900mm internal width is recommended by truckies, this means if one sheep stops, another will continue to flow past. Single file sheep loading ramps are slow and inefficient.
  • A non-slip walkway and handrail is needed for operator safety and access to stock when loading.
  • Fully sheeted 1 metre sides promote stock flow.
  • A sheep loading ramp should pull forward when it is raised, so there is no need to move the truck.
  • A drop over truck bridge is recommended to minimise leg injuries.
  • A self-engaging safety bar for adjustable ramps ensures safety if a winch cable breaks.
Truck access to the sheep loading facility should also be a consideration when looking at installing a new sheep loading ramp. As a minimum trucks need approximately two truck lengths in front of the ramp.

Livestock carriers also prefer to back in on their right hand side for better vision of the ramp. Ensure that the ground where the truck is parked when loading is level ensuring the truck is not leaning one way.
