Maggie and Hutch are very fortunate that their cattle are docile as a result of quality post ownership, breed characteristics, daily interaction and handling. “The cattle behave quietly in the yards and enjoy getting head rubs and back scratches.”

The Red Devon cattle are easy to handle and walk up the race, and into the yards, into the crush without hesitation. When moving cattle from paddock to paddock there is no need to use dogs you just simply call out and they follow.
