A REPORT ON THE UTILITY OF LIVESTOCK AND VEHICULAR UNDERPASSES

BY REVIEWING DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTON DETAILS, AND BY INTERVIEWING PROPERTY OWNERS, INFORMATION IS COMPILED ON THE UTILITY OF INSTALLED MACHINERY AND CATTLE PASSES; WHETHER, FOR A GIVEN FARM OR RANCH OPERATION, THE DESIGNS ARE ADEQUATE, SUB-STANDARD OR SUPERADEQUATE. COMPARABLE LIVESTOCK UNITS WILL BE DERIVED FROM THE COMPILED CASE STUDIES TO AID IN SELECTING AN ADEQUATE STRUCTURE IN A GIVEN SITUATION. A SMALL STOCKPASS OF EXCESSIVE LENGTH IS KNOWN TO BE UNDESIRABLE, PARTICULARLY THOSE LOCATED IN DRAINAGE AREAS. TOPOGRPHICAL LOCATION SEEMS TO BE THE MOST INFLUENTIAL VARIABLE, GIVEN AN ACCEPTABLE SIZE OF STOCKPASS. /AUTHOR/
