Damn what professional looking plans you draw. Are you a draftsman, architect etc by trade? Is this rough cut saw mill 1x"s, or dressed pressure treated? If rough-cut, what kind do y'all use there? Here, we'd use pine saw mill rough cut for buildings, and rough cut oak for the pen/corral sides. Good job, Rafter SHow narrow? I like my chutes 28" wide. It takes an exceptionally large animal to not be able to push through, and you don't want a small cow or large calf to turn around in the chute and come back at you.
By the way, below is the drawing I did for some pens I built at a rent pasture about 10 years ago. It works pretty well. If I was going to change anything I'd have the alley at top 10' wide instead of 12'.
