Building corrals .2 years without corrals
4 sets of straw corrals.... 2 for brandings, 2 for calf shipping.
2 calvings seasons using straw alley ways and electric fence.
2 loads of pipe
8 1/2 pallets of dry concrete....
And we are finally building corrals!!! Had two friends come with a skidsteer and got all the posts set in 3 and half days so that was great!!! Now we have all the posts cut and top rails on. Will go pretty fast now. Hopefully will have them done for shipping the end of Sept.

Congratulations!! Love it when a plan comes together.
There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

Great progress, got the rails nice and close, the calves won't be so inclined to stick heads out.

Would it be alright if I run my cows up there this fall and work them in those "Cadillac Corrals"? Those are going to last a lifetime for ya! Nice work and they look swell from here.
