All-Stainless Crowd Gates
(Nothing less than 304 stainless - same as your Milk Tank)
Why stainless? Because in our case, the cost of stainless and hot dip galvanized gates are just about the same, fortunately or unfortunately, depending on your point of view. 

The Environmental Protection Agency drove all Galvanizers in the State of Wisconsin out of business.  Nearest Galvanizers are either south of Rockford, IL or west of Minneapolis, they however d not have vats large enough for these gates. The nearest hot dipper with large enough vats is in Nebraska, 800 miles from Rhinelander. That's four trips per gate and at almost $4.-/mile  freight alone comes to $12,000. Then add the cost of the hot dipping, and you might as well make the whole thing out of stainless.
