The Kosmo Kid and I have been working on building a crowding alley.
We are gaining.
Pretty much completed. We plan to put a squeeze chute on the front and try it out tomorrow.
It replaces an old wooden plank alley
That has worked very well
For the past fifty years. I used to help our neighbor work cattle through this alley many years ago. We bought the ranch in 1986,
and saw no need to change the alley system until now, when it finally wore out.
This one has gates at the back, which the old system didn't have. The heavy steel part is 28 feet long plus the four-foot gates,
whcih makes the total alley 32 feet long. This is the same length as the old wooden alley. Hope it works as well as the old one did.
