Category:Stocks for animals

English: A cattle crush (in British Isles, New Zealand and Australia), squeeze chute, (North America) standing stock, or simply stock (North America, Ireland) is a strongly built stall or cage for holding cattle, horses, or other livestock safely while they are examined, marked, or given veterinary treatment. Cows may be made to suckle calves in a crush. For the safety of the animal and the people attending it, a close-fitting crush may be used to ensure the animal stands "stock still". The overall purpose of a crush is to hold an animal still in order to minimize the risk of injury to both the animal itself and the operator whilst work on the animal is performed.
