I was reinforcing my loading chutes to accommodate this big bull on getting rid of. The electric pole I was using as a post was so darn big when I put it in I couldn't adjust it once it went in the hole. Turns out it was leaning in and the width of my cattle Chute after the panels are in is only 26 inches wide. My 9 month bread Caw can squeeze through with her sides touching and rubbing you think a 1500 pound Bulls going to go through this. chute? Hate to have to cut this expensive post out but dont want to not have the bull go through. That darn 10 foot post was a beast to lift by myself. I already trimmed the post with a chainsaw some.

Wouldn't bother me a bit. I prefer 28" if I'm building but have sent bigger bulls and cows down narrower.
