Our Manual Cattle Squeeze Chute - The Proven Standard

Built in the USA by skilled craftsmen, our patented designs have been used in the industry for over 50 years. We were the first to introduce vertical sides. And our manual cattle squeeze chute offers many options to help you configure the right chute to meet your needs. The heavy, rugged construction of our manual chute is powder coated for durability and designed for livestock and operator safety.

Our Working  Chutes Feature:

  • Vertical sides that allow cattle to move into chute easily and stand in a natural position.
  • Automatic adjustment as the chute is squeezed for any size animal, with no climbing the sides or excessive slipping.
  • Neck panels that are hinged and swing out for safe access.
  • Wing gates that are hinged for quick, easy opening, and optimum safety, plus they are removable to give a larger opening. (Double wing available for branding!)
  • Side boards that are removable for foot work and milking.
  • Diamond-plate steel flooring that improves traction and increases safety.

See these features in the photos below!

Also check out the new Pearson Prime which offers even more features including quieter operation, rump ratchet bar, and even more convenient access through wider wing gates and bottom doors.

Customize your manual squeeze chute with lots of options!

Making sure you get the right piece of cattle handling equipment is important to us. We offer options like: Head Gates, Tail Gates, Sides, Palpation Cages, Extra-long Chutes, Scales, Kits and Upgrades. 



Our manual cattle squeeze chute is available with a self-catch head gate or a manual head gate. See our Head Gates page for more information on each option.



An aluminum tail gate with automatic lock-up/lock-down is operated by a rope and pulley system from the front operating position of the chute. Constructed of structural-grade, extruded aircraft aluminum for the best combination of strength and low weight. This tail gate is standard on all working chutes. A horizontal rolling gate is also available.


Side Options

We have many side options available including single side exits (left or right), double side exits, vet doors, and our new dutch door option. Get more information about all of our working chute side options

Palpation Cages

The optional Pearson Palpation Cage (pictured at the top of this page) is ideal for artificial insemination and pregnancy testing. The chute tail gate can be used in the manual chute or cage.

XL Option

Our new Extra-Long Chute combines Pearson's proven design with palpation doors built in on both sides of the chute. The palpation section squeezes with the rest of the chute resulting in no place for calves to turn around. The extra length is also convenient for longer animals.


Pearson is a national distributor for Tru-Test Weighing Systems.
