You can't shove or cajole a 1 ton cow when it doesn't wanna git up in the truck so, sometimes, a lil zap can work wonders. Only other time (and was for this more than cows) was when I wanted to go fishing.
Yeah, I usually throw a rope or pipe across the chute or alley behind them and tail jack them. It helps to have a catwalk built on the side of the alley.
The wild ones and the jumpers usually get culled out.
