Australia: Attending Mount Barker Saleyard

Animals’ Angels attend Mt Barker where just over 1100 young cattle are for sale.

Densities of some pens are questionable; the cattle would jostle and push their way to the water trough. We advise management that at least six pens require attention because the cattle are too close and need space to allow air flow to cool down and access the water trough.  We are told as soon as drafting is finished he will check and spilt the pens giving animals more room.

Handling was calm and quiet.
