How a Bud Box Works
- Cattle enter the Beef Buddy® easily, as they have an unobstructed view through the panel at the opposite end
- You close the entry gate behind the cattle
- Cattle naturally turn back to where they entered
- When turning back, they see the open race gate and flow through easily
- Cattle move into the race with no force
Open End Panel
The open panel at the end of the Beef Buddy® ensures that livestock move into the box with ease, as their view is unobstructed.
…When we installed our first Beef Buddy, it worked perfectly. When the cows were in the Box, we could stay at the crush and have cattle walk up to the crush without anyone going near them. We now have 4 Beef Buddy’s at different sets of yards including one that loads a working race from one corner and a loading ramp from the diagonally opposite corner. The principal of having cattle squeeze past us and head straight for the daylight in the corner (which is the race entrance), works really well…

Man Gates on either side of the race entrance increase operator safety, as there are two gates where the handler can exit the box.
Sheeted Entry Gate
The fully sheeted entry gate guides livestock into the race entrance with ease, ensuring that they transition smoothly through the box.
