When I gave you a look at our preg checking day I neglected to tell you about some of our best men. Well, they aren't men at all. They are dogs.
After a few days of working calves through the alley and squeeze chute, The Rancher said, "Those dogs are worth two men working out there!" And he is right. These dogs run along the alley, sticking their nose under to bite the heels of the cows. Then they will nip at the cows in the chute to head them out. It sure saves a guy having to always run back and forth trying to get the cattle to move.
