Our Story

We started Coon River Gate Company, LLC in 2015. The EnduraGate however, has been in use on our farm for many years. After designing and manufacturing various EnduraGates for our own calving and feedlot facilities we decided this was something all cattlemen should benefit from.

All of our original prototypes are still in use on our operation today and we feel confident that you will see the value and versatility in our gates. We stand behind our products and want you to know that if there is an issue with a gate that is our fault, we will take care of it! When you call us, you talk directly to us, not an automated system.

Our family has been farming and feeding cattle here in Sac County, Iowa for more than 125 years. Our promise to you is that we will be here for you now and in the future.

We are on our 3rd group calving. The calving gates work great … better than we even hoped for. We will plan to get some more gates soon.
