This is our Squeeze Chute. It has escape doors on both sides, 3-drop down doors on both sides, exit gate works both ways for auto close or manual. There is a hole for a pipe to keep animal from laying down in the Chute. Also there is a chain & lever to squeeze the sides up against the cow to hold it still. Got this one for 800.00-900.00 used but it was never used yet so I guess you could call it new. Mark H.

Hi, Mark, very similar to the one I have, mine is made by Flexi-coil, a few cosmetic changes, but that is about it. Have mine "plumbed" into an alley way system, have yet to build a "palp" gate behind the sqeeze, also need a walkway around the alleyway, about two feet off the ground to be able to reach the animals inside. Some year I might get all this done! Have a gooder,R.E.L.

This is it's tempory spot for it. I have some 1 1/2 inch box steel that comes out 4 ft on each side to keep it from tipping over if a big cow gets upset. I will bolt it to a concrete pad just outside of a door in the barn that will allow the cows to be forsed into it from the inside area. That way it is the only way out and I hope they will think the are getting out befor the gates close behind them. Mark H.

Mark as a thought. If You have space to do it havin the chute under cover is mighty nice,comfortable,pleasent and havin lights ta boot will make it so nice tha vet will pay You. Think about it.

I was told never work for a guy with lights in the barn. He'll work you all night.

I just hate to carry around a flash light to see. They kind of come in handy for those nights something is sick or the cows are upset about something in the pasture and I need a clear shot to solve the problem. Mark H.

Good point there! It will be shelterd and a light will be on the ridge of the Barn above it. I hadn't planed it for the squeese chute but now that you said that it will work for both. We don't get much rain around here so that is not a problem. But if the weather is bad it can be covered with a tarp to keep it off us. Mark H.
