Joe Mischka

with Drew Conroy and Tim Huppe, present information on training a handy team of oxen using three kinds of commands - verbal, body position and physical touch. The step-by-step program starts with selecting calves, handling the animals in the barn, establishing training goals and pre-yoke training. They then move to how to yoke the team, hitch and work them, prepare for competition and doing practical work. This video clearly demonstrates that anyone with an interest in cattle can have the satisfaction of training a team. See how much progress you can make in the minimum training time of one month to educate and condition the cattle. 2 hours. DVD available from Rural Heritage.
