We are deciding between roll gates or guillotine style gates.......both would require an apparatus built over the chute/lane in order to work effectively. The guillotine has the added benefit of being able to release or shut it from a distance away, which I like, so right now it's in the lead on gating solutions.On your chute, maybe you could construct a guillotine gate with use of a rope and pulley? That's what we bought when we got my equipment. They are awesome. Knowing you and the way you create something out of stuff nobody else wants, my bet is that you could make a Jim Dandy guillotine gate.
We'll also have a head gate style gate but will build that here....the prices of headgates, even for goats and sheep, are astronomical! We've got tons of materials we can use from the destruction of the large pallets, so most everything will be built here and materials sourced here.
