Animal Catcher
It's almost impossible to rope a calf on a moving ATV, and it's dangerous, too, since the lasso can get wrapped up in the wheels so quickly. We've got an effective solution to the problem with our patent-pending "Animal Catcher." It's a 1-in. dia. aluminum tube 5-ft. long with a 3-ft. wide Y-shaped extension on one end. U-clamps attach the lasso to the handle. When you drop the loop over a calf's neck and slow the ATV down, the pressure causes the clamps to release and the calf goes down immediately. It's a simple design that really works great. We've built a working model and have a local welder ready to begin production if there's enough interest. We expect to charge about $40 for our "Animal Catcher." (William and Bert Loehrer, R.R. 1, Box 129, Milbank, S. Dak. 57252)
