Sheep Catering Cart
South Dakota sheep raiser Allen Griepp, of Watertown, designed this "sheep catering cart on wheels" for catching sheep in a pen and wheeling them to a spot to be sheared or checked over.
All you do to use the cart is push it up against the sheep's back legs, then pull the sheep back into the cart and onto an 18 in. wide seat, strong enough to hold a 300 lb. sheep. A seat-belt type buckle and strap allows you to secure the animal in the cart.
To unload, you just pull a lever which drops the seat down, sliding the animal onto the ground.
Griepp adds that his wife likes the cart for doing yardwork "because it's easier to wheel around than a wheelbarrow".
Griepp estimates the catering cart could be built for about $160.
