James Hoenstine, creator of Cattle Guard Forms

Invented by a cattle farmer for cattle farmers.
James Hoenstine, has a relatively small herd as cattle operations go, but he’s solved a big headache for anyone who’s gotten sticker shock pricing out traditional steel cattle guards. When James got tired of opening and closing gates all day he discovered two things: steel cattleguards are expensive, AND they are heavy. That means you get eaten up paying for the extras. Shipping expenses are huge, and when those heavy steel guards are delivered, the farmer is responsible for getting them off the truck too! Plus, many steel cattle guards need concrete footers, which is an added expense.

James was looking at almost $14,000 to buy traditional cattle guards for just four openings on his farm. He thought, “There has got to be a better way.” While thinking it over, James had a flash of Divine Inspiration. The answer came to him: “Concrete!” And Cattle Guard Forms are the result of several years of research, engineering and refinement.

A Cattle Guard Form is a cast-in-place rigid, polyethylene form with Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer rebar pre installed. The form simply cures with the concrete so all you have to do is place the form, fill it with concrete, and you’re done. Once cured the finished cattle guard meets the HS-20 standard. That means your cattle guard complies with rigid standards used in building highway bridges, and are rated for 32,000 pounds per axle.

By creating a lightweight form made with modern composite materials, we have solved the overexpensive cattle guard problem.
