It takes 40 years to learn how to handle cattle, but you can go to Philadelphia and learn to be a lawyer in eight.

— Bud Williams

This afternoon Tina and I were able to help a friend gather his cattle from this 80 acre pasture. This friend usually used the feed bucket to get most of them into the corral. He asked whether we’d be able to gather them all using stockmanship, and I said certainly, yes we could. And we did. Unfortunately, it’s hard to see the cattle above the abundant grass in the pasture as they stream toward the corral gate!

Here the cattle are easily standing in the corral before we even got the gate shut. There was no running in, finding no grain, and running out again before we could get there and get the gate shut. They were happy to be there because they were driven in correctly.
