Why portable?
This is a very common question that no matter where we go people seem to ask, but it’s not the whole question that created this company.  About twenty-five years ago the company founder was approached and asked a simple but serious question, to a rather serious and growing concern in our area.  The task laid before him was not so simple.  Can you make a safe, durable, easy to operate, portable cattle corral?  So with that in mind R.L. Wilson tackled the task and designed, patented, and manufactured the first truly portable corral.
It hasn’t been an easy task, but after the last twenty-five years we have been able to adapt and continue to grow.  The ranchers who asked the original question where looking for a complete self-contained gathering system that was portable, fast and easy to set up, strong enough to get the job done, stay in one piece and keep the rancher safe.
So we have answered that call and now offer four different units to handle your gathering and cattle working needs, and they’re all portable.  Whether you’re a smaller outfit running twenty-five to forty head per pasture with multiple pastures, or you’re a bigger operation running fifty or more per pasture with multiple locations, we have a unit for you.  It may be our Portable Corral or for the bigger guys we offer the Sorting System both of which are standalone units.  Maybe you just need some support equipment like our portable Chute and Alleyway systems (with or without tub or working pen) or The wing that can work as a gathering wing at the rear of the corral or as a sorting system then reconfigured into extra pens.  Whatever the job now you can quickly go to the cattle, do the job and move on to the next task while saving time and money.

The Processor is offered in three sizes for the convenience of ranchers and cattle producers throughout the world and the main difference with this design is the ability to customize the corral upon ordering by including a hydraulic alley, head gate or loading chute.

The design of the Processor continues to impress cattle producers with its versatility and ease of use.
