Our XL chute handles calves as well as the cows and bulls!
We had a Powder River chute but now I wonder how we ever got anything done with it. Bought a Pearson XL about two years ago and wouldn’t trade it for anything! The XL handles calves and big cows just as easy. Seems I end up working some by myself a lot and the self-catch works great! We were at Producers Coop Expo a couple of years ago and compared the Pearson chute to Priefert and Powder River. After looking all of them over and speaking with Ricky Rater, it didn’t take long to have him write up the XL for us and now we have a Cadillac of a working chute. The XL should last us a lifetime; [the] only reason I would think of getting rid of it would be if we sold all our cattle and closed down the ranch!
We have both the maternity pen and a XL Chute with scales. Two of the best things we ever bought. Great products.
