Go-Anywhere Calf Corral
"Lets me take care of newborn calves without worrying about their mothers," says Earl Skriver, who built a go-anywhere calf corral that he carries to pastures with his pickup-mounted big bale handler.
Constructed out of 2 by 6-in. lumber, the corral is 5 ft. sq. and 4 ft. high. It lifts easily with the lift arms of the bale handler. When the ground is muddy, he can transport it with a tractor front-end loader.
When Skriver finds a newborn calf in the field, he simply sets the corral down over it. Then, he climbs inside and works with the calf without worrying about the mother.
