Down in the Chute.
Calves should never be delivered with the cow restrained in a chute, with possible exception of a side opening chute. Calving heifers or cows invariably go down during the actual delivery. Cows may be examined in the chute prior to delivery. A halter may then be put on and tied low and long to the front of the chute after which the cow is released and can be worked on in front of the chute.
