Cattle Siren FAQs
Both the standard and heavy duty PIERCE cattle siren reach cattle as far away as one mile.
This product brings innovation on how to feed cattle. Most cattle are naturally attracted to the sound of the siren. If some of the herd don’t initially respond the first feeding will cure that. We, at PIERCE, know that as long as they can associate feed with a siren, they will keep coming to it.
Here we look at the heavy duty and standard cattle siren what are the differences? Which one will work best for your application?
Standard Cattle Siren:
- 105 db max volume
- 2 minute max run time
- 6 month warranty
Heavy Duty Cattle Siren:
- 120 db max volume
- 10 minute max run time

The differences in the standard cattle siren and the heavy duty cattle siren are easy to see. The heavy duty boasts a louder siren that runs for 8 minutes longer than the standard, as well as sounding a bit louder. We suggest the heavy duty siren for daily use. If you’re using the siren a couple times a week the standard should suit your needs.
