I just wanted to introduce myself to the board. I've been lurking for years, but just recently decided to join. We

We currently are planning to put some new pens up. Current pens are old cedar and i'm spending more time repairing them than working cattle. I'm going to attach an image of the pens that i've designed. Please, pick them apart and impart some wisdom on this ol' soul.

Thanks,
3BCC

Just off the top of my head, I noticed your 14' alleys. I built new working pens a couple years ago with 12' alleys and wish I had made them 10' instead.

I've definitely thought about the gates between the top and bottom pens. I hadn't decided yet but the more i think on it the more i like it. Will the 10' alleys be sufficient for the bud box design?
