Hydraulic Cattle Chutes
A hydraulic cattle chute is a squeeze chute that is operated using hydraulic controls for the tail gate, head gate, squeeze, and head sweep. A well designed hydraulic chute will adhere to low-stress cattle handling practices, with focus on keeping the animal and the rancher safe. When looking for a hydraulic cattle chute, you want to ensure it is durable, well-made, and quiet. Specifically, watch for engines that are mounted on top of the chute, as the noise made by the engine could spook animals and cause them to be chute shy as a result.
