Cattle Crush

It's that time of the year again when I need to get the cattle tested for TB & Brucellosis. This will be my second round of tests since getting my herd number last year. On top of this I am expanding my small herd of Dexter and getting a few more.Below is a mobile cattle crush that I bartered with a neighbor and I need to spend some time getting it up and running. The floor is completely rotten so I plan on putting in a new one with scaffold boards and tack down some chicken wire on it for some grip. I started this afternoon power-washing off the loose paint and I'm surprised at how well the old layers are coming off.After all the paint is off I will re-paint it and put in the new floor.
