Has anyone trained their cows to come to Kulning? I so want to do this but there is no point because our cows are in a very small area

Yea but I don't sing, cattle and sheep readily train to come on come on. The trick being to do it everytime you shift them or give them feed. The bulls here were trained but they've since gone to the works so ill have to start again with the calves

I love this; already watched it like 10 times. I love seeing or hearing about interesting things people do with their animals like this. Thanks for the post.

I would love to do something like this but they see the grass coming from outside the fence (or even see the guys walking inside the property in the evening) and they all run to the shed and moo    Now if I could train them to stand for treatments that would be great!

Here is my call

COME ON GIRLS! LET'S GO GIRLS!

I wait for a distant moo. Once I hear it I know they are coming.

We do feed a bagged protein every evening so it's a dinner call. If I get there late, they are already there waiting
