Gate trains heifers

freestall gate

We mounted an 8-foot gate to the main gate on the end of the alley of our freestalls. If fresh heifers don’t know how to use the stalls at first, we move them in and tie the gate behind them so they can’t back out. The heifer always lies down in a few hours, and then she is trained.
