EVER WONDERED HOW THEY YARD LONGHORNS?
❚ The show cattle are loaded onto a truck with a full width back door that hydraulically lowers.
❚ For cattle going to the abattoir they have a single deck stock trailer with a 1.5 m wide loading race. Sometimes if their horns are too wide they have to turn them to get around corners and posts.
❚ There is a specially designed cattle crush for any animal husbandry work they do with the longhorns.
❚ The rest of the yards are standard. As their horns grow the cattle learn to manoeuvre through the gates putting one horn through at a time.
