First we gave a three hour talk in the “classroom” on the value and basics of Stockmanship. Then we traveled to Rex and Amy Hamilton’s farm where they had this group of calves all ready for Richard’s demonstration. These were sale-barn calves that had been trained to drive when they first arrived, though hadn’t been “driven” in a month. They showed how the early training pays off and they don’t forget!
Loading took 30 seconds from Richard walking toward them after opening the trailer gates until the trailer gates were locked.
