Steel pieces improve palpation rail
My palpation rail holds about 10 cows at once, but I normally need to manage five cows or less. My new device holds them in place.
I made a bar out of a scrap piece of 1-1/2-inch solid round steel. Then, I welded a curved flat steel piece to its end to make it fit onto the palpation rail. Next, I welded small pieces of rebar at 45-degree angles on top of the back of the palpation rail every 12 inches. Now, the bar catches on the rebar to hold cows in.
