Of course, it was a rerun of the week before, so the motor did not work, so they could not milk them. They had to make more feed and someone had to wheelbarrow it into the barn via the arm-strong method, and then gather a crew and chase the cows back to the old barn. Just a little late for milking this time, around 1:30 pm. I got photos of them coming back, it's good thing I went out and saw them coming up the road as no one was there to direct them into the correct gate. I waved my arm from ten meters away.
The slower group soldiered on and got home too. Seemed like a few non- milkers joined the ranks, but they are moving here someday anyway. By that time I had "help" directing them in, but had to convince the help to move back from in front of the gate.
There was one problem, Garry had to go weld someone's gate down the street around 6 pm. Apparently one of the cows tried going into their yard through their people gate while going past and did not fit and broke it.
Cross your fingers, knock on wood, this time it's going to work!
Watch for more herd moving practice photos later this week.
They should be pros soon. Cows and people, both.
