EVER WON­DERED HOW THEY YARD LONGHORNS?

Warwick Daily News - South West Queensland Rural Weekly - - Rural Weekly -

❚ 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.
