The difference that you see in a squeeze chute with these durable and flexible Blinders installed is literally “daylight and dark.” These Blinders (or Louvers as they are sometimes called) are designed to snap on to the side drop down bars of Priefert Squeeze Chutes at a 45 degree angle to the path that cattle will travel through the chute. Taking into consideration that cattle have a 300 degree line of sight, Blinders help to limit the peripheral view of cattle entering the chute. This shields cattle from distractions outside the chute that could cause them to balk or back up and funnels them directly toward the headgate opening. Blinders have been shown to improve livestock flow and lower the stress level for the cattle being worked. These Blinders are constructed from durable, “rubber like” cast polyurethane that is UV stable; so they are not only flexible and safe for use with livestock, but they are also rust and crack resistant.
