Half chute preference?
« on: February 19, 2012, 05:06:23 PM »
Decided to finally get a grooming chute for the few shows I do go to.  Have looked thru past posts on here and have decided on a half chute. I only have shown, and probably will only show long weanlings or yearlings. I figured I only want a 7' long chute. Noticed the "All Aluminum" and the "Sullivans" (which is an 8').  Anyone have either, likes or dislikes?  (Or another brand??) My calves are pretty tame and chute broke at home. Anyone have any personal preferences??

I have one of each. Both are great but the All Aluminum one seems to keep its floor in place better.

We have one of each . Both are Sullivan chutes . I like both but the half chute should only be used with well broke calves. There isn't much to that half chute so I don't think it would take much for one to be upside down in it.

Just curious, what are chutes like those worth new these days?
