Mucci, Deb ; Vachowski, Brian . 2006. Improved All-Terrain Vehicle Cattle Guard. 0623 2313P. Missoula, MT: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Missoula Technology and Development Center. 4 p.

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.
