Dennis, feedlot manager, and Richard discuss important aspects of feedlot stockmanship.


Working a pen of cattle.

Dennis asked Richard for a demonstration on driving these bulls out of this pasture. First, you start from the gate you want them to go out of.

The bull in the pond just couldn’t miss out on the great movement and had to come join in.

They are lining out nicely to the gate.

And they are starting to go through the gate.

And they are all through the gate, down the lane, and have no thoughts about turning and coming back out.
