When cows get out they sure enjoy it.

    A friend of ours has a small cattle farm along Rt 66 in Greensburg. His cattle enjoy climbing across the fence and walking into oncoming traffic in the road. I’m wondering what, if anything, should a stranger do to try to coax cattle back into a pasture should you see them on a roadway?

      Carol –
      It depends :-)
      Cattle aren’t usually coaxed back into a fenced area – they are most often driven from behind. If they’re facing oncoming traffic not much you can do until you get them turned around and facing the right direction. One they’re facing the right right direction you can put pressure on them to move with your vehicle or a long stick. It usually will take at least 2 people to drive them back into a fence or through a gate…unless they’re trained to come to a bucket of feed…but that’s an entire post!
