It is designed to attach to a sturdy existing corral, or two heavy duty posts, 8" off the ground. The BRY Longhorn Chute attaches to a permanent structure with 6 bolts. Tail ropes may be spaced over a dozen different places to fit the exact length for every critter. Cattle can be released from either side. Two side panels can be opened for branding. Vaccinations are easy with tight confinement. Tail ropes can adjust to all size stock, from a 250 pound calf, to a full size cow or bull. Notice the three adjustments in front. Full size bull, the front panel is 8 foot and the back panel is 9 foot. The widest horned cattle can be measured accurately. Horizontal parallels make humane handling of large horned or poled cattle.

Historic Lineage Chart:revised 1-1-2006. Texas Longhorn Dominate Sire Lineage Chart.
For 38 years, one bull has so dominantly stamped the Texas Longhorn industry that every World and International All Age Champion Bull has carried his prepotent blood. With only a few exceptions, his lineage has set more sale records, created more semen sales and created more real profit than any other bull in Texas Longhorn history.
The Dominate Sire Lineage shows where the great values started, the delicate thread that held it together and how each producer can successfully plan forward using the lessons history has proven from the past.
The lineage documents the greatest Dominant sire line. It includes the 31 sons, 25 grand sons, 19 great grand sons, 50 great, great grandsons, 52 great, great, great grandsons, and 32 of their sons, a total of 210 sires in pedigree schematic order.
Every student, investor, and appreciator of Texas Longhorn history will, at first glance, give the 210 sires a "tip-of-the-old-Stetson" for getting it all together.
