â€œWe have used Bateman products for several projects on our 200 cow dairy farm and on each occasion have been very pleased with the service they have provided. Their area fieldsman James Heath is exceptional and draws on his experience of other handling systems and knowledge of Bateman products to aid in the layout and design of the systems to ensure efficient and speedy cow flow and importantly a safe and secure handling of the cows. In our view this input from James is just as important as the price of the system. We would not hesitate to recommend Bateman products and Jamesâ€™ planningâ€œ
Robert and Anne Graham - Lasenby Moor Farm, Ripon, North Yorkshire
We were needing feed barriers, gates and water troughs to divide a shed into pens for wintering cattle. The shed is needed for temporary grain storage at harvest, so all the cattle barriers had to be removable. As this was a job we were only likely to do once, we wanted to get it right and we wanted it to last. After explaining to L M Bateman what we were looking for, their salesman Wez Hall came up with a plan which we then tweaked a little here and there. The quote he came back with was very competitive but I think it was more their reputation and the build quality that decided it for us. We installed it all ourselves with a bit of help from the local builder and everything fitted in as planned with no problems. Now that it is all up it seems a shame to put cattle in and get it all mucky. I am most impressed with the weight of metal used in the feed barriers, you certainly would not want to try and lift one yourself. I am pleased with our purchase and hopefully it will continue to please for many years to come.

LM Bateman provided us with an excellent service from the design, manufacture and delivery of our new cattle handling system. It has truly transformed the way we handle cattle, making it safe and secure for the animals and the people operating the system. The service Bateman provided was impeccable from start to finish, they worked with us to create exactly what we wanted something that is totally unique in this field. We now have total confidence in handling our livestock and cannot thank Bateman enough.
