Cattle Producers Get First Hand Look At Cattle Handling Equipment At Oklahoma City Farm Show

Thu, 18 Jun 2020 12:16:53 CDT

Cattle Producers Get First Hand Look At Cattle Handling Equipment At Oklahoma City Farm Show Cattle producers can get an up-close view of the latest cattle handling equipment during the Oklahoma City Farm Show now underway at State Fair Park. Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Associate Farm Director and Editor KC Sheperd talked with Joey Gamble, Priefert Rodeo and Ranch Equipment, and Tim Fuller, rodeo announcer and Emcee for the cattle handling demonstrations.

Today we have 8 squeeze chutes from manufacturers from throughout the country, Gamble said. This allows you to see all the different manufacturers and how the equipment works, Gamble said.

Acknowledging that many producers work alone or with the aid of their spouse, Gamble said todayís modern equipment is designed for safety and convenience.

Our number goal is to make it safe for ranchers and animals, Gamble said. You want to make it as easy as possible and without stress, he said.

You are basically giving them a hug to hold them still while you give them a vaccine, wormers and ear tags, Gamble said.

Fuller explained the importance of the event.

You can go to your local dealer and see the equipment but here you can see the equipment actually working to help make an educated decision, Fuller said. Itís come a long way from the old railroad ties and panels wired together. Now we have a fully automatic chute with scales, he said.

Fuller noted they are giving away $500 each day on every demonstration towards the purchase of the chute.

Itís really neat to sit down and watch them work because you seldom get that chance, Fuller said.

Overall, Fuller said it really just gives the producer the opportunity to see which squeeze shoot is going to work best for them.
