Although none, to date, have been halter-trained, they are used to being fussed and are perfectly relaxed with both people and dogs, which makes life and management so much easier. None of our fields are overly large, so moving our cattle around is a common occurence - this works well as they are therefore very used to coming when called, meaning it's an easy one-person job and stress is non-existant for either human or animal.
Previously, we used Artificial Insemination with our herd in the Midlands, with above-average results. However, our herd at Cilwg are visited each year by a bull, to be served 'au naturale'. Our bulls are provided by a wonderful couple over in Newcastle Emlyn who work to the same ethos as us. All their bulls are magnificent beasts, are handled well and haven't got a nasty bone in them - although they will always be bulls, therefore must be handled with caution!
