  • The Chute Louver is designed to snap on at a 45 degree angel to the animal travel path. The Design took into mind cattle have 300 degrees of sight due to having eyes on the side of their head. We have limited their peripheral view to obscure outside activity. This allows the louver to work toward the “Flight Zone” of the cattle. Once an animal gets past its point of “Balance” (90 degrees from animals front shoulder) their instinct is to move away from the movement.
  • Cattle also can see color. By utilizing black material, louvers shade and blend all shadows and reflections, keeping smooth transitions through chute.
  • The number of louvers used can be modified, depending on chute design, personal preference and working style.
  • Diameter for Statesman Chutes; recommend 5 louvers for operator’s side
    • 10 louvers recommended to cover both sides of chute
