Taking Cattle Handling to a New Level With the Turret Gate

The way that feedyard owners handle cattle has a massive impact on gains and the overall health of the animal. Many of you have used the snake and tub concept originally designed by Temple Grandin (i think?) When I was at the NCBA convention I ran into a very cool booth that was giving live demonstrations of their new cattle handling technology system. Not only is the Turret gate easy on the animal but it also can be operated by one employee with a remote control. From what I saw, not only is the Turret Gate safe for the cattle but also for the operator.

I love talking to entrepreneurs that have invented something at tradeshows.  You can just feel the passion for the product during the interview.  Watch the video and see what I mean.  It is hard to argue with a lot of the concepts presented with Moly Manufacturing in this video.
