Lucas Sorrells, Cold Mountain Angus
Portable Cattle Handling Equipment
Grant Award: $8,000
Fourth generation farmer Lucas Sorrells grazes cattle on several different farms, some without cattle handling/working facilities. His new portable chute has allowed him to work the cattle in all of the locations and keep himself and the animals safe. In the future it will enable him to increase his productivity with the ability to monitor weight gain and check for pregnancy. Overall, the chute will streamline his day-to-day operations and allow him to process and sell more beef to his customers.
