Yes rancher youve been drinking...... :wink: It does curve a bit, the ground wasnt quite as level as it should be so I had to improvise. There is no concrete on the feed area, just frozen ground. I will likely use our scraper and take all the black dirt out of that area in the summer and pack clay and gravel into it. That pen is 160 ft by 375 ft long. Feed bunk is about 370 ft long. A lot of 2x8's went into building it as well as 1x6 boards. Denny, The windbreak boards are free standing about 4 ft above the corral planks.
A fellow here made a feedlot similar to yours, but soon the bull calves wouldn't eat very well. What happened was the upper board was too low and they sored their necks on it. Rubbed all the hair out even. He had to raise the board and they started eating again. I found that very interesting.
