Trimming Chute Mounts On Front-End LoaderYou can trim hooves yourself instead of hiring a custom operator with an inexpensive new do-it-yourself "tipping table" that attaches to a tractor front-end loader.
Developed by Canadian Jack Taylor, the top of the new table bolts to the upper lip of a loader bucket. The weight of the table is carried by two 15-in. tires. To work cattle, the table is first held in the upright position against a fence or side of a building. Once an animal is strapped into place, you simply lower the front-end loader to lay the table on its side.
Taylor says he got the idea for the trimming table from a neighbor. "He wanted something that would be less expensive than the big self-contained trimming chutes."
The new unit mounts on any front-end loader and can be quickly detached. The table can be positioned against a corral panel to form a chute or it can be fitted with an optional add-on side panel held by extension arms to form its own chute. An optional head gate is also available.
Taylor says the new tipping table handles the largest cows and bulls. Sells for $995 (Canadian).
