Homemade Metal Halter For Beef Cattle
I let the calf get used to wearing a rope halter for an hour or two each day for two or three days. Then I replace the rope halter with the steel halter and tie the bull to a fence for an hour every day for three or four days. The calf can then be taught to lead, by hand, or the halter's lead shank can be attached to a donkey. Whenever the donkey moves the calf has no choice but to go with him and soon learns to yield to pressure on the halter. (John Pshyk, Box 121, Glendon, Alberta, Canada T0A 1P0 ph 403 635-2377)
