The man who rolls up his sleeves seldom loses his shirt.

— Thomas Cowan

We are watering the cattle out of the drinker in the barn lot (where the corral is located). One of the cows was so relaxed about the corral that she “placed” her 24-hour-old calf inside the Bud Box while she went out to graze.

But, really, this isn’t all that remarkable in any way. The only reason livestock appear “afraid” of the corral (or gate or feeder or anything similar) is that we are pressuring them incorrectly. When you apply proper stockmanship, fear isn’t an issue, and the livestock respond in the ways so you can get the job done.
