I think it is an alright size for now. If the heads get caught, all you do is calm them down and slide them into the wider part, or just let the heifer out all together. Or just do what my husband did once when our largest bull got stuck... šŸ¤£ Rub oil or grease all over the head and neck and slide it down! LOL

Could you remove the floorboards and use a hacksaw to cut off the metal support bars? If so, how much more room would you add?
I would probably save up to buy a larger chute eventually, but for now you should be fine. You will probably need one in the future because as you grow your herd, cattle size varies greatly.
