Installed a used cattle squeeze chute at the number 2 farm. Won't have to haul cattle to the home farm to work on them.

I like those roundabout designs.

Nearly built my cattle pens that way, but went with a funnel design to my chute and headgate. Probably should have gone roundabout.

Let us know how it works for you!

Good deal, can you lock it up to ward off rustlers?

We have an old barn that needs tearing down. and a shed for cattle put up.
We are trying to figure out what to do with out braking the bank.

Nice setup and putting it on concrete was smart.

Yeah, if you can't see your working pens from the house, better lock 'em up!

People don't realize that LOTS of cattle are stolen and hauled off by using the ranch pens.

I had a hydraulic squeeze chute, worked great. We mounted the pump and motor well away from the chute due to noise, ran pipes overhead in the working shed. Had a cat walk along the alley, handy pushing them forward, tail sticking for bangs tests, pour on treatment, etc.

A good set of working pens does make working a bunch of cows a lot easier. Easier on crew and cows.

The solid walls work well for the cattle, I like something I can climb if I need to.

We had them too. Gotta have cats around a barn where feed and tack are kept.
