Driving Cattle

An article* on How to Drive Cattle may have good advice on working with people. Excerpts: “You have to read your cow. You have no idea how cows are going to react.” … “Drive cattle at the pace of a walk.” … “Make sure they see you and start talking to them.” … “It is easier to wait for a cow who has gone rogue than force it back to the herd … leave them be and let them calm down. They’ll get the drift and follow along, and you let them back in.” … “Reveal to your herd as little of your stress as possible.” … “[Cattle] have the capacity to tire out and just stand there, and they will not move. Slow is fast — cattle don’t wear wristwatches.”
