STATES RIGHAIRD SAYRG'EN'LL, OF ALIX, ALBERTA, OAINALUA.

AIQ'IMAL PEN.

Application filed December llhe invention relates to improvements in animal pens as described in the present speci. lication and shown in the accompanying drawings which form part of the same.

lhe invention appertains in particular to an animal pen or enclosure composed of a number of interchangeable sections detachably joined. at their ends to supporting posts.

The object of the invention is to provide an in'iproved mode of attachment whereby the sections can be secured in such a manner as to render the enclosure easy of assembly and disassembly l t ith the aforegoing object in view, each section has its end members projecting be low and above the normal extent of the section, The approximate ends of two sections to be secured to a post are placed in overlapping arrangement against the post and then a fastening device is fitted completely around the projections at the top of the sections and the post. Similarly, a like fastening device is titted around the projections at the bottom of the sections and also of the post.

The preferred form of-fastening device shown in the drawings comprehends a it shaped wire clip and a plate apertured to receive the ends thereof, which plate is bolted onto the clip by means of bolts threaded on the ends of said clip.

lteferring to the drawings, Fig. 1 illustrates two sections having their overlapping ends secured to a post by means of the present invention.

a details a section constructed according to the present invention.

Fig. 3 a detail of the preferred form of fastening device.

d is a plan assembly view showing the fastening device of the preceding figure htted over the upper ends of two sections and the top of a post.

liilre numerals of reference indicate corre sponding parts in each of the figures throughout the drawings.

lln the drawings, the reference numeral 1 indicates in a general way a section which comprises a pair of outside or end uprights Q; and intermediate uprights 3; all of which uprights are connected by a series of parallel transverse bars 4- and braced by diagonal members 5. The distinctive feature of the section is that the end uprights 2 have their extremities projecting, as at 6, above and e, 1926. Serial as. waste.

below the top and bottom transverse bars in order to receive the fastening devices.

The section is preferably constructed of metal and it is intended to employ a number of these sections in order to erect pens of various sizes according to the head of cattle to be penned.

In erecting a pen, each two adjoining sections are overlapped slightly so that the adjacent end members are positioned one against the other, and supported by driving a post 7 into the ground. A fastening device 8 is fitted completely around the top projections of the overlapped members and also the post. The bottom projections are secured by a similar fastening device.

The fastening device illustrated in the drawings consists of a U-shaped wire clip it having threaded extremities receiving nuts 10 which bear against the plate 11 that is placed over the legs of the clip. This type of fastening device rigidly secures the sections by the tightening of the nuts and possesses the advantage that it can be easily slipped on and off the post.

What I claim is 1. An animal pen comprised of metal sections successively arranged, each pair of adjoining ends being overlapped and the members which form the ends projecting above and below the sections, a post positioned against each overlapped pair of end members, a fastening device passing completely around the top projecting parts of each pair of end members and the adjacent post so as to clamp them together and a similar fastening device likewise clamping the bottom projecting parts of the end mem bers to the post.

2. An animal pen comprised of metal sections successively arranged, each pair of adjoining ends being overlapped and the members which form the ends projecting above and below the sections, a post positioned against such overlapped pair of end members, a U-shaped wire passing around the projecting parts of each pair of end members and the adjacent post, a plate bolted on the legs of the wire to clamp the embraced parts together and a similar fastening device clamping the bottom projecting parts of the end members to the post.

Signed at Alix, Alberta, Canada, this 17th day of November, 1926.
