I've found that this corral has been very useful. Having a securely fenced, hard-fenced, area is in my opinion a necessary part of every farm. Being able to keep and contain an animal securely has meant that I could sleep at night when I had a breachy cow, or when I purchased new stock from the auction, or just wanted to separate the males from the females to time the breeding.
This particular corral, after two years of use, has had a buildup of manure and chips and hay that's probably 2 to 3 feet deep in places. And the design isn't one that allows a tractor to get in to clean it out. What to do?
I'll be cleaning ditches and digging in water lines and doing other end-of-year tasks with this little beauty. It's really pretty fun to operate. like having a bionic arm. Liking it a lot.
