If you’ll be handling all sizes of cattle
and using the box for both processing
and loading trucks, you might
consider making it adjustable to suit
each class and need. This can be done
with the addition of a partition gate
inside the box that would shorten up
the length as needed and lay fl ush
when not in use.
DESIGNED TO FEEL ‘OPEN’
You’ll just want to be sure you
allow enough space that the box feels
‘open’, but not so much that it feels
too open. According to Bud Williams
Stockmanship, spacing of 5-6 inches
between boards or panel rungs works
just fi ne.
The only solid side you may want
to consider in your Bud Box construction
is the gate where the cattle
enter the box. A solid side here can
make the opening into the alley more
apparent and seem more inviting.
