Makes great footing for cows

bottle cooler blocks light

I made this grooving bull float to create good traction on the concrete in our dry cow yard. I bought a 4-foot magnesium bull float for $90 and added grooving bars made of 3/4-inch aluminum rod attached every 4 inches using predrilled holes and self-tapping screws.
Lastly, I ground it smooth on the bottom to leave a smooth textured surface that is effective, long lasting and animal friendly.
