Today was another beautiful day. This morning I moved a group of heifers to a fresh pasture.
First I drove them to the pond just incase they wanted a drink.
Most people panic when they are driving cattle to a different pasture and there is a pond near by. That is the last place they want the cattle to go. They think they’ll get in the pond and won’t get out. That is not going to happen. If you handle your cattle properly this is not a concern at all. In fact, if there is a pond near by I drive them right to it and right on through it.
This way you don’t have to worry if they get in the pond, you already know they’re going in the pond, so there’s no worries!
These heifers grabbed a drink and walked right out the other side. Now the only thing they have on their mind is fresh grass.
Filing one by one through the gate.
The grass IS greener on the other side!
