Cattle farmer discovers ingenious way to herd his cows
Instead of scaring them away, why not lure the cows to you?
A farmer has found an ingenious way to herd his cattle, with the cows following him rather than than running away.
Twitter user @KYFarmboy408 posted a video of him driving a tractor with a trough of food dragging along behind it – the effect of which you can probably guess already.

How can that be??? No horses.... no dogs.... 🙄 That's the best way!! Have them chase you!! Much easier. 👍— John I (@JIcow_farmer) October 30, 2018
The farmer was pretty happy about the situation himself, too.

Others farmers also shared their thoughts – and it turns out it’s not an unprecedented trick.
