Plastic Carpet Protector Works As Cattle Scratcher
A length of clear plastic carpet protector, secured around a 2 by 4-in. board, makes an excellent cattle scratcher for Stan Harder's herd of purebred Red Angus cattle. A length of chain attaches to each end of the 2 by 4, and it hangs in the corner of a corral.
"The carpet protector is reversed so the little knobs that normally hold the protector to the carpet are on the outside," says Harder. "The knobs penetrate the hair and are just the right length to scratch the hide. Our cattle use them constantly so they last only about a year. However, it costs me only about $5 to make a new scratcher."
