Farming 101: Moving the Bull

If you have a Jersey bull calf that you are trying to get to go through a gate, but does not want to go through the gate, he automatically pulls in the opposite direction. Simply turn around and pull him away from the gate. He will automatically pull against you, in the direction you want him to go. Then, you can let him back through the gate, allowing him to think that he is winning the tug of war.

Ha Ha!!

People always make cows and farm life sound easy and beautiful. I kind of thought so to until the Lees cow stood on me, their baby calf jumped on my back, and the Mommy and the Baby got in a tussle while I was attached to "big momma". WOW!!

Cows are a pain sometimes, and I have tried what you talked about with some success before LOL!
