A simple way to sort calves from cows.

Sorting calves away from cows for branding/vaccinating, artificial insemination (AI) protocols, preweaning vaccinations, weaning, etc., can be time-consuming. Some producers use an alley where cows are encouraged to go one way and calves another, but this takes at least two people, good swinging gates, and cattle sometimes bunch up in the sorting area when cows don’t want to leave their calves.
