Tarter’s CattleMaster Series 3 is the economical, fast, and safe solution for smaller cattle operations. This all-purpose chute even makes it easy to work cattle by yourself.

The Series 3 has a number of great features that will save you time and protect your investment.

Let's start with the tailgate. An easy-to-use pull handle allows you to operate the tailgate near the entrance so you can encourage livestock to enter. The tailgate automatically locks when opened. When closed, durable steel bars prevent cattle from getting out - and others from getting in - allowing cattle to see into the chute. It’s more likely they will want to enter when it’s their turn.

Next, the CattleMaster Series 3 head gate gives you a number of options that allows for easy adjustments to fit the various sizes of your livestock. 

The Manual head gate is easy to operate with a simple lever to get the job done. The Automatic head-gate does the catching for you, so there’s no need to stand at the front of the chute.

Once livestock are in the chute - a single lever squeeze mechanism lets you apply pressure safely - keeping them still and calm.

With one hand, you can easily access the top half of livestock for branding, vaccinations, and deworming. Removable panels make working the lower half of cattle safe and quick.

And if you need to work larger cattle, there's a side door to allow livestock to exit.

"There is a lot less chance of a cow getting in contact with the operator so there's a lesser chance of me getting injured if I am here by myself.

When I run them through it seems pretty simple. It’s pretty easy. They go right through it. I feel pretty safe running my cattle through it."
Taylor, Dunnville, KY

"The chute is well built.  It’s a nice piece of equipment. 

I think the Series 3 it’s a good investment for any small farmer like I am. It’s well worth what you have to pay for it. "
