We finally got to give our borrowed cattle yards a whirl yesterday. They had been half set up in our L paddock since last year. Half setup does not lend itself to good stockmanship or stockwomanship. More on that subject later.

A big thanks to Peter McDonald for laying out the yards to make them functional. Alison and I managed to do some quick modifications that allowed us to put the herd through for the first time. We sprayed them all for Buffalo fly, applied pour-on to a few, and tagged (NILS and Cromwell Farms) a few more. Details to follow once Aubrey gets back from netball at Yamba.
