The Southwest Montana ATV (all-terrain vehicle) Trail Cattle Guard (MTDC-1049) has been developed to replace an earlier design, the Deerlodge Trail Cattle Guard (MTDC-951-2). The Deerlodge Trail Cattle Guard proved to be too short (only 34 inches on each side of a wire fence) to prevent livestock from trying to jump over it. Also, cattle got their legs caught in the 4-inch gap between the rails and could not free themselves.
Keywords: all-terrain vehicles, ATVs, cattle guards.
