Manual Squeeze Chutes
A squeeze chute should be designed for efficiency, safety, and maximum productivity while adhering to proper animal science and low-stress cattle handling practices. By removing pressure points and ensuring a clear line of sight, a good manual squeeze chute will ensure that cattle do not feel pressured. When cattle are under less pressure and walk through the manual chute instead of running, it limits injury to livestock and the rancher, both issues which are often seen in self-catch chutes. Reducing noise is also a vital part of eliminating cattle stress, and is often overlooked with most livestock equipment. A manual squeeze chute that is quiet keeps the animal calm when working them.
