Crowding Tub Funnel

Efficient cattle handling is largely dependent on the design of your crowding tub. The funnel crowding tub is the most efficient of our crowding tub solutions. The half-circle version of the funnel tub provides the best of the funnel solution because it will turn the cattle 180° to return your cattle to where they came from.

The curve of the inside funnel panel contributes to the efficiency of the crowding tub. As the pivot gate closes on the livestock the cattle will often turn to face the pivot point of the moving crowding gate and can get wedged in the corner. The curved face of the funnel panel bends into the crowding tub and eliminates the wedge at the pivot point. The cattle can then focus on the exit into the working alley.

See where you are going

The visual relationship between the crowding tub and the working alley is critically important. From the viewpoint of the cattle in the crowding tub your cattle should see clearly at least one body length up the working alley. If the cattle cannot see into the alley or there is something in the alley that distracts the cattle your livestock will hesitate or refuse to enter the working alley without added pressure and stress. The exit of a funnel crowding tub is highly visible. The curved face of the funnel panel flows seamlessly into the working alley directing the livestock clearly to the exit.

Less cattle is more efficient

Handling techniques will also affect the efficiency of your cattle processing. We are frequently asked how many animals you can fit in a crowding tub. Of course this will vary based on the crowding tub design and the size of the cattle that you will be filling the crowding tub with. When you are handling your cattle remember the importance of your cattle’s perspective from inside the tub. To enter the working alley smoothly your cattle need to clearly see the entrance to the working alley. If they can’t see the exit they won’t know where to go and they will turn their attention to the crowding gate. When a crowding tub is overfilled or overcrowded your livestock will be unable to move to find the exit. And if you have an animal standing with its butt in the alley and no room to move your flow will come to a stop.
