Cattle Chute Head Restraint: Designed to work with Priefert Squeeze Chutes, Headgates, and the Priefert Calf Table, this Head Chain can be used to securely restrain an animal’s head. With the chain threaded through the chain loop, pull one end of the chain across the front of the animal’s head and secure the end of the chain in the chain lock. Simply pull on the other end of the chain to tighten it over the bridge of the animal’s nose, and then pull upward until chain catches in the V at the top of the chain loop. Bring the remainder of the chain across animal’s neck, behind the ears, and secure the appropriate link into the chain lock. This creates a “halter like” restraint, allowing safe and easy access to the animal’s head, perfect for when you need to doctor an animal’s eyes or read tattoos.


When choosing a head restraint, it is important to consider the handling tasks that you complete on a regular basis. A Head Restraint can be a huge benefit to your operation, or a major downfall. Taking the time to do your research will help you determine which type is right for your needs, so the next time you manage your cattle will be easier than ever before.
