The sliding end gate keeps them in the alley. I do not want any no backs hanging in my alley.

George I likely can't justify this set up with my numbers either, but my kids love to help with the cattle and I needed safer facilities than what I was using. Maybe someday I will have the numbers to justify it.

To be honest I haven't yet run the herd through it, only doctored a couple critters in it. So I cannot say if it will cause animal hesitation to get on the concrete, it never seemed to bother the couple critters I doctored. My place can get very soft and muddy which is why I wanted it on concrete. I will be preconditioning and preging soon which will be the first real test.

Let us know how you like it after running the herd through it.

I looks beautifully built for sure. I have never used a straight squeeze alley, in our immediate area they are all curved and solid.

At my point in life, it's : I wanted it. I bought it.

I've always wondered about using mats over the concrete
