Preview: How To Pick A Good Cow: Steve Oehlhoff and Jonathan Rogers Take The Mystery Out Of Picking Good Cattle!
Jonathan Rogers and Steve Oehlhof show you exactly what to look for when trying to pick good cattle to cut. They give you a very in-depth analogy of the cattle and they identify what cattle wouldn’t be good to cut and why. The most important thing they both keep reiterating is to watch how each cow responds to the herd settler as he walks towards or past them.
Jonathan and Steve explain how they organize their cow list and they identify what sort of reaction they are looking for from the good cattle as the herd settler walks towards or past them.
They explain why some trainers prefer colored cattle versus black cattle and they discuss why getting a cow that is comfortable walking on the outside of the herd is desirable.
We all feel that drawing deep in the herd is a huge disadvantage. Well, both Steve and Jonathan explain why it can be an advantage.
