Firstly apologies as I know I am breaking the first and most sacred rule of TFF and be assured I will fully repent over the forthcoming calving & gate tying season. The first rule of course being “suggesting there is a better solution than baler twine too any problem!”. Each year we build additional calving pens in our straw shed, the pens are roughly a hurdle & a half deep, well last year I realised that scaffold tube fittings also secure cattle hurdles. Two of them on opposite corners are solid ! We used them all last year without issue ,but this year I’m treating myself to some plastic covers for the excess bolts ! Got a sack of 50 2nd hand for £30 from a scaffolder on a Friday afternoon...Again apologies and I can only ask for your forgiveness !
