#1 Selling Portable Corral on Wheels

Rawhide Portable Corrals by John McDonald are designed to make your work easier and your farm, ranch or livestock production business more efficient. They are an excellent alternative to hauling cattle home to process — you can work on site by yourself without lifting!

In 2002, John McDonald invented and designed the first ever hydraulic portable corral on wheels with multiple pens and a 200 head capacity. Since then we have expanded to multiple corral options and additional features including an increased capacity.

Update: We now offer our PATENTED Torsion Suspension system on all of our portable corrals and new products (see below). This makes the corrals easier to pull not only on the roads and highway systems, but through pastures as well. 

NEW Product Alert: Rawhide Windbreak. The same great portable design with a twist. John McDonald has introduced the Windbreak, which can withstand 50+ mph winds. Not only is it great for stopping wind, but it has a built in loafing shed and calving pen option. Those that want to go a step further can also add a head gate option. More information to be added on to our site soon.

We use our Rawhide Portable Corral System for everything!! We wouldn’t be where we are today without it. From working cows and calves in the spring, rounding them up from the pasture to move or bring home, sorting off the calves in the fall, and having bull pens. It is our system!!

I’d be lost without the Rawhide! We use it to preg check all the cows on corn stalks and it’s used daily seems like for various tasks we need to complete! We use it more then we ever thought we would when we first bought it! Sure saves a lot of time and works great!
