Whether in a barn or out in an open pen, sometimes it can be difficult to determine if a gate is open or shut. And if you happen to be driving a cow, whether or not that gate is open can be important to the task at hand. Arlo Shoenrock eliminated the problem by painting gates with highly visible florescent orange paint. It’s a simple idea, but one he says, “that saves a lot of footsteps if we are sorting cows and calves.” Now he can quickly see if the gate is open or closed from the other end of the barn.
