Part of renovating our cattle yards is the new hardware – barriers, gates and a cage de contention to hold cows steady for examination or insemination.
Getting the material off the low loader means putting the pallet forks on the tractor. Rev the engine to get the power in the hydraulic system and lift the half ton cage. It is all shiny with its zinc coating. That won’t last – it will soon get plenty of wear and tear.
And what a nice day for work.
Next we’ll install some of the barriers into the old barn.

very impressive pallet fork you got there.
Very shiny zinc coating, too – and it looks like your tree is about to come into leaf – must be spring!
Is that Tractor Cat behind the tractor?
I know what you mean about shiny and new. Somehow we imagine using the new facilities and all the animals are happy and everything is running smoothly.
I guess if we couldn’t imagine this, we’d have to quit farming.
How exciting! Can’t wait to see some pictures of your new squeeze chute in action! Seeing “Temple Grandin” really changed my mind about what I used to think cattle liked! That’s not an instrument of torture–it’s a rocking chair for cows! 😀
