Corral Design

Post by njg123 » Wed Jul 01, 2020 6:39 pm

What is the most effective shape for a Corral? I am thinking 3 entries/exits. 1 large to get cattle in effectively, 1 shoot back to pasture, then one towards the gate for loading.

Does anyone have any helpful blue prints or tips available.

Thank you in advance.

Here's one I designed and built some years ago. It works pretty well. Sizes could be adjusted to accommodate the number of cattle you'll be working. If I had to do it again I'd probably make the alley 10' instead of 12'.
