For use on feedlots and ranches where a variety of large cattle and calves are handled. The V shape prevents the cattle from turning around. Do NOT use the V chute at slaughter plants or in dairies. For slaughter plants use a chute with straight sides spaced 30 in. (76 cm) apart. The oneway gate design can also be used in a chute with straight sides. Build a square oneway gate. For slaughter plants the chute fence should be 5'6" (170 cm) to 6'(183 cm) high.
Note: If the walkway is more than 24 in.(61 cm) off the ground, a handrail must be installed for worker safety.
