This curved crowd pen and chute had solid sides that avoided outside distractions for the cattle.  Cattle move easily through a curved crowd pen such as this one, and enter the single file chute (entrance at arrow) more easily if they can pass through the crowd pen without stopping.  The operators should wait until the single file chute is half empty before refilling the crowd pen.
