Livestock Halters & Leads
Around the barn, livestock halters and lead ropes are essential for animal husbandry practices. Teaching the members of your herd to lead properly makes daily handling, veterinarian visits, and health care procedures much more convenient to perform.
At The Cheshire Horse, we carry an extensive selection of halters, neck straps, neck ropes, and leads for cows, bulls, alpacas, goats, and sheep. With high-quality livestock brands, including Hamilton Products, Perri's Leather, and Weaver Leather, you know that you are purchasing durable pieces of equipment which will withstand the test of time.
Nylon halters and neck straps are popular due to their strength, durability, and ease of care. They are available in a rainbow of colors, allowing you to easily identify which halter belongs to each member of your herd. Leaving your halter on for too long may result in irritation, so if you need to leave it on for extended periods of time, consider outfitting it with a padded noseband cover for increased comfort.
Rope halters and neck ropes are designed for training and handling purposes. The thin material allows the handler to easily direct the animal's attention and provide additional pressure as needed (the pressure is released quickly when the handler relaxes the lead rope). These innovative halters and neck ropes increase the level of communication between the handler and animal. Due to the fact that they are fitted with knots instead of buckles, they are not recommended for turnout.
Outfit your goats, dairy cows, beef cattle, alpacas, llamas, and sheep with a new halter and lead rope set. If you have any questions regarding sizing or the livestock halters and leads that we carry, we encourage you to speak with a member of our friendly and knowledgeable sales staff.
