The other day a friend of mine and two other people were trying to get a handful of pairs to go underneath the highway through one of those square concrete culverts. The cattle didn’t want to go for a couple of reasons, deep mud being one of those. I stopped to help them, we got the cattle up to the culvert but they just stood there. I started rocking back and forth from one foot to the other, the cattle started moving around and pretty soon they started through the culvert calves and all. This was one of those many times I have experienced, that what you teach really works. Thanks for all the help.
We built a Bud Box that is 14 X 30 to load trucks. It worked great, even using a portable loading chute. I think it is very important to bring those cattle at a trot into the Bud Box, they sure turn around and load good. The box is big enough to hold 22 yearlings, which was what we were putting in the two big compartments on the truck. I wouldn’t what it any smaller. Once I got the cattle started up the chute I had to stand right at the opening to keep them from going in too fast.
