Got the Stock Tank, Squeeze Chute and Wash Rack done today. This way the cows go thru the barn with Portable Panels making them head for the Chute Door and the only way out is into the Chute. This should make it alot easier to get them in there now. The 2 1/2 x 1/4 inch steel pipes for the tie posts are set in concrete below the slab and have welded on rings of 1/2 inch steel to snap quick release tie down to hold the cows with for washing them for show and brushing them to. I put a plug behind the trough for the stock tank heater. Nothing left to do except paint some exposed wood on the eves. Mark H.

Well I have to give credit to Shelby! That is the way she wanted the Squeeze Chute. I just followed directions to keep the Ladies happy and built what they wanted. Mark H.

I did not allways do things right. My wife said don't you use a level and tape when you build? I used to wing it but they would get mad when it was not plum and square! So I started taking my time and measuring twice, cut once and put it on paper first and get there OK on it. That way everybody was happy. Doing it on paper first saves lots of hassle in the end.
