head chute plans
« on: February 27, 2019, 09:29:39 PM »
Don't know if this is an appropriate place to ask this question... but, here goes anyway.  Does anyone have any plans/pictures for a homemade head chute.  I would purchase a commercial head gate, looking to be able to build the chute.  I don't need to spend $4000 for a commercial one for my small herd.

Look at Craigslist or some pages on Facebook. You will be able to find a used one for probably cheaper than you could make one and probably more sturdy.

I bought a clipping chute from JOHN PATTERSON in Houston in 76, still have it,  have made dozen or so replicas since for others.  Materials about 250,  can send you picture if it would help.  It is not a self catch.

Cowman 52 id love to see some pictures. I am looking to build one also.
It's suppose to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it great.
