The worlds most advanced roping chute.
The RC98AI has a Laser Eye that detects the presence or absence of an animal in the chute. When a steer is released with one push of a button, the laser detects his absence. While ropers are roping, the tailgate automatically opens allowing the next steer to enter. Once the steer is detected, the tailgate shuts and the chute is loaded and ready to go.
Priefert’s Manual Roping Chute is the quietest, most durable chute on the market. This chute’s easy fingertip touch release and spring assisted opening ensures that every roper gets the same release of the steer or calf. The split tailgate eliminates ropes, pulleys and knee knocking levers. Both the front release gate and the tailgate can be operated from either side of the chute, either from the ground or from horseback. It’s the overall ease of use that makes Priefert’s manual roping chute the number one chute choice for ropers the world over.

A short history……. Marvin Priefert, a Nebraskan corn farmer, took up a cattle ranch in Texas in 1962. After seeing his neighbour work cattle with a guillotine-style Head bale, which would often let the cattle get choked down, Marvin knew there had to be a "better way" and he began working on a head bale prototype. In 1964, Marvin Priefert invented the first gliding-action, fully-opening Head bale. This Head bale design featured two gate yokes that would slide open when the operator lifted the lever, allowing the animal's head to pass through the opening. The operator then pulled the lever down to slide the two yokes of the Head bale back into place, closing securely onto both sides of the animal's neck. Confident in this design, Marvin built a second one of these head bales for his neighbour. He went on to patent this invention as he had many others, but this time, he took it a step further and decided to manufacture and sell the item himself. Here began Priefert Manufacturing and the start of world changing cattle handling innovation.
Arguably the very best head bale on the market, Priefert's Model 91 is the only head bale that works effectively both in Manual and Self-Catch mode The Model 91 makes it easy to run lots of cattle on Manual or catch that sick cow or two when you are by yourself with no one else to run her up the race to the chute.
Infinite locks (GUARANTEED FOR LIFE) eliminate the need for pre-sorting the herd as cow, calf or bull can be caught one behind the other without pre-setting a different locking width. There's no need to block the next cow in line as with its scissor action full-length opening; as one cow exits, another can be caught right off her tail. For an outstanding value, don't settle for less than Priefert's Model 91 Auto / Manual head bale.
