I agree... they both have merit... and a place. Depends mostly on how the operator prefers to work the cattle. Personal preference. I personally prefer a box vs. a tub, for the reasons that I've clearly stated. I've got nothing against those who prefer a tub. It's a free country.You have been on a kick about tubs. They both have their place.
Agree as well... that's why I always suggest mounting a "crowd gate" hinged on the lane entrance in a box. You might not need it most of the time, but it can for sure be a lifesaver (potentially literally) when you do.I would never encourage some one to build facilities with out a way to pressure the cattle through. It's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.
