I think the old type steel dairy stanchions are about seven inches. (I'm just going outside..I will measure). They often had pre-drilled holes to add a piece of wood on the inner side, for a younger animal..marion
7 to 8 inches average unless you have a real small cow, if it ends up to close you can take a little off 1 of the uprights Suzanne

I'm excited to finally have a stachion. We had plenty of scrap wood laying around(We're a family of pack rats for building materials. LOL) So the whole thing is practically free except for the rubber stall mats we picked up for it and the bolts to secure the head gate.
Thanks, of course now I'm blushing because for the past week I've been saying "station". Because some how I overlooked the "n", even though I have been reading and reading about them for the past couple of weeks. Then you say "stan-shun" and I thought "there was an "n" in there!?!? Even went and double checked in the tree of knowledge to see that "n" I missed for the past couple weeks. LOL

claytonpaul: A bull was put on her herd Late Last May so she was expected to be due between May1 and August. They quoted me August so I wouldn't be disappointing by a late arrival.

alpacalexi: My mini jersey cow is pregnant, however the last couple days her udder has deflated. My vet saw her on the 23 and said delivery in a couple weeks Is there a reason for her deflating?

Trim: She probably aborted a while back. That happened to one of my animals. She was bagging up but within a short while of her "due date" she began to deflate. I had no idea what had happened. I was seriously bummed out.
