Handling Equipment

Free Use of Cattle Handling Equipment

Have you used the Handling Equipment program? We'd like your feedback - please take our survey

Thank you for your interest in the Center for Beef Excellence’s program for the free use of the handling equipment. 

The equipment is available for use by Pennsylvania cattlemen on a first-come, first-serve basis for up to 21 days at a time. Users must be able to pick-up the equipment and return the equipment to its original location by the end of the allotted time. The equipment comes with its own trailer. A liability waiver must be signed by the user before the equipment can be obtained and the user assumes all risks and damages. Click here to download the liability form.

Please allow up to 4 weeks for your application to be reviewed and dates assessed for availability. A CBE member will contact you once your application has been processed. Please note that dates requested do not guarantee availability.

Please fill out the form at the bottom of this page to submit your request to borrow CBE’s handling equipment. Your application will be reviewed and assessed for availability.
