I saw that too. Some yearling bulls are miserable little buggers at BSE time and a few heifers at AI time about kneeling front end down in the chute. Definitely going to try it.

Do you see any downside? Clearly, you're right there monitoring and as soon as they get up the sleeve/bag is removed - or prior, if something isn't right. Sure beats a hot shot, opening one side of the gate, halters, etc.

I clicked on that to watch, it didn't have anything to do with cows. Or chutes. Or sleeves/bags.
What did I do wrong?.

:unsure: Don't click on "Watch Now". Click on the "white arrow" to play.
Thanks. That wasn't there when I tried earlier. Pretty neat!

We were told a long time ago when a cow/heifer didn't get up after calving to yell in their ear.
That works most of the time but wouldn't apply in this situation.

Bubba probably has more cow handling tricks in his little finger than most of us get in a lifetime. He runs a buy/sell station in Fairfield, works great for those of us intimidated by a sale barn. I’ve always heard good things about him.
