Hi all,

I use old steel bathtubs for feed and water. Also some timber shipping boxes that are say 4x4

The calves are especially bad and like to stand in bathtubs.

Thinking of building frames for tub so they can be forked, I could add a bar across middle of tub area...or I could make a frame...or modify cattle panels to stop them standing in tubs.

What would be best height so calves and grown cattle can use it, or am I going to have to have different feed areas setup.
Instead of a horizontal bar, is prob better with vertical, anyone know the spacing so both calves and polled cows can practically use it ?
