Portable dehorning headlock works well

This portable dehorning headlock, used by Dawn Settle at Mammoser Farm in Eden, N.Y., makes restraining calves easier and less stressful for both people and animals. The front of the unit is 36 inches high by 2 feet wide, and the entire stall is 54 inches long. The two sturdy base legs feature 4-inch channel iron that is 0.25 inches thick. And, two 5-inch-long handles made from 1-inch pipe make moving the unit a snap.
