The Warren County Cooperative Extension has livestock handling equipment for lease to farmers and producers who operate in the county.
According to livestock agent Matthew Place, one item that is available is a squeeze chute, built for small ruminants like sheep and goats. The chute allows for full restraint for animals for vaccinations and other work and has a tilt feature that allows for the animal to be laid on its side for hoof trimming or other types of needed treatment.
There also is a portable cattle-working facility available for lease. Place describes this as a portable corral system that has an alley and headgate built in. The whole assembly can hold up to 50 head of brood cows.
For more information about leasing these pieces of equipment, contact the Warren County Extension Office at 252.257.3640 or email Matthew Place at firstname.lastname@example.org.
