Working the Winter Herd

I smelt winter today! The wind is blowing from the north and it’s getting colder.

    It is always good to hear the cheery cry of the cattle herder on a sunny morning.

    • My cattle calling videos might suggest that the marsh herd is exceptionally willing and obedient. When it’s important I move the cattle to a specific place at a specific time, they sometimes sense and are unsettled by my urgency. The herd will blatantly ignore my calls and refuse to move if they suspect I’m trying to trick them.

      If my calls are calm, and I appear relaxed and unhurried, the herd will come to my call.
