I stopped using an Injectable parasiticide like Ivomec because that stuff must hurt. I had three cows that almost got to where I could not get them in the chute. Since I have switched to pour on Eprinex, no problem.

LA200 and 300 also causes some chute shyness


Subconjunctival injections with PenG and dex will also cause chute shyness. :frowns:

You have to educate people that some cows have been trained, and others are wild and mean.. Kinda like don't walk behind a horse.
I have some cows that just LOVE people.. True to her name, Kama (Goddess of love) in fact loves anyone who comes around.. She even put up with 3 and 5 year old girls petting her, jumping up and down and clapping.. kinda surprised even me.

This one’s pretty friendly! Most of mine are but this one is exceptional. She’ll put up with anything for a good brushing.

How long have they been there? Thats not really what they're designed for. Can't imagine you can put much tension on them. Esp snow load.

Yeah, that's Dick. He's a gentle giant & loves attention, getting brushed - especially if cubes are involved!
