Quality Steel Calf Cradle


The Quality Steel Calf Cradle has been developed by Mat Hudspith, in collaboration with Malcolm McClymont and Ron Purse of Richmond fame and has been designed with the decades of combined experience of Western Queensland stockmen, to get the most out of your equipment with the least amount of risk to your stock and workers.


              • Easy single person operation
              • Tipping table at ideal working height
              • Self-catching head bail
              • Side and rear gate for ease of access
              • Calf runs available
              • Enclosed sides for animal and worker safety 

"Designed by Cattlemen, For the Cattle Industry"

With its rugged construction to handle even the most robust calf, a self catching head bail, adjustable single action clamp and a tipping table that sits at the optimal height to keep both the animal and the worker out of the dirt and in a comfortable position, the Quality Steel Calf Cradle will meet all of your calf husbandry needs with safety, reliability and durability.

Pie House Drive Through

We recently completed a set of media/digital display cases for the new Condon Pie House. Working alongside NQAV Townsville, we were able to come up with a solution that was practical and aesthetically pleasing.

This project proved challenging from both a technical and design point of view, as it had us working not only on a concept outside of our typical manufacturing process, but also with materials foreign to the experiences of our team. Being able to draw on the knowledge and experiences of our very diverse team, we have been able to produce a finished product that is not only fit for use, but will help to set Pie House apart with their modern and clean digital menu boards.

QSFE has prided itself on providing the best possible quality of product along with the friendliest and best possible customer service that only a local team can provide. A project such as this brings with it not only a steep learning curve, but also a realisation that our capabilities really are as diverse as the many possibilities that are out there.

Cattle Crush and 5 Way Draft

Over the 30 years of Quality Steel Fabrications and Engineering being in Richmond, Matt Hudspith has worked alongside cattlemen of the area developing Cattle Handling Equipment suited to the way they work their Cattle. Our 5 way Draft originally was a copy of a 3 way draft on Yan Yeah Station, which was owned by Jill Phillips 30 years ago. Our 5 way draft has been made to handle large animals so it is a little longer than others. Matt  changed the Block off Gate so it was more Efficient then developed a self catching head bale. Others have copied this now, It was originally Matt Hudspith's idea.

A Race attaches to the Crush which attaches to the 5 Way Draft. This helps with Weaning, Checking, Ear Tagging, Spraying Etc. Penning and Separating your Cattle. Which helps to keep Costs down by helping to keep the whole process efficient.
