For-Most Livestock Equipment's Model 375 Squeeze Chute is a single-side squeeze built for years of safe, dependable service. The 375 keeps the animal centered in the headgate regardless of the side adjustment. The right-side adjustment operates independently of the chute floor, eliminating manure buildup as an obstruction to side adjustment.
Boasting the same chain mechanism as For-Most's popular Model 450, the 375's foot panels are raised to 31 in. to make nursing a calf and footwork easier. In addition, the chute's right side swings open completely, and the chute offers generous access to the animal's neck.
