Grant Award: $6,000
With the addition of a Rawhide portable corral system, Rice Family Farms will have needed equipment to safely and efficiently work their cattle.
Since their cattle are located on multiple locations, having a portable system to use for cattle handling is a priority for the farm. To add more value to their herd, they are actively working towards enhancing the genetics of their herd which requires the use of Artificial Insemination and Embryo Transfer practices.
The system will allow for increased animal safety and lowered stress in the process. It will also reduce labor of cattle handling and let one person work the cattle. Since there are no portable corral systems available for rent in their region, purchasing their own is their only option.
