Today I found a portable cattle chute 18 miles from home.
My neighbor is looking to borrow one to work his cattle in because the Department of Agriculture's "loaner" chute got drowned and destroyed during Hurricane Irene. So there was none to lend, until I went a driving over hill and dale and saw this vintage beauty sitting in a field with nothing to do....
It ain't pretty and it looks like it will jostle our old bones some, but it will get the job done.
Needs some oiling, that's for sure.
Hope we can talk to the owner and get it borrowed some day.
Any other suggestions on how to get this ancient chute up and running smoothly ?
